Cleaning up files/folders on the server

Again I know this is probably a basic thing... and for reference I'm not on the S-Drive thing (site if required - www.thelittlecashbookcompany.com )

As I've been doing a lot of testing (well, a bit of) I'd like to clean up files/folders on the server.

Going from the Local Disk tab to my site server tab I can see I can right click on files & delete them either singularly or in multiples but the option to delete folders is not available even if they are empty?

If I go to the remove website project option does that just wipe the whole thing?

Is there any easy way of viewing files etc on a server which are not used by the website or any other way of tidying it up?

By way of example I have 2 image folders, one which I'd like to delete (a secondary one I used to test something) & my primary which is capitalised (Images rather than images). Even though on my local computer I've changed it to the lower case option, uploading doesn't change it on the server & there's no apparent renaming option.

Is the option for the locally stored items. You do not want to delete the Project. I would suggest using

Hope this helps!

Thanks SirAGE, I have the program but thought (for some reason) it was built into the HTML editor - I guess the built in one is a scaled down version & the DirectFTP program is a fully featured one. Will check it out after. Thanks for the heads-up.
