Can't delete some folders from website - Post ID 267206

I use the CoffeeCup Direct FTP app exclusively to maintain my sites, but I can't seem to get a folder or its contents deleted. The FTP app performs the delete when I ask it to, but the folder remains. I have tried deleting the files within the folder and that appears to work until I Refresh the display and the folder, subfolders and files remain.
The folder in question is one that I uploaded unintentionally. Its contents are not actually used.
Can someone point me toward an explanation?
I have all the powers associated with the site, by the way.

Has the site your trying to delete from been switched from http to https?
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.
