Deleting files - 550 Device or resource busy

#1 Post by binks77 » 2019-01-04 13:47

I've been trying to delete some redundant files from my hosting server buy each time I'm trying to do that server response is

Code: Select all

Command:	DELE
Response:	550 Device or resource busy
What should I do now to delete my files? I am paying for certain disk space and if I'll exceed it, I'll have to pay some extra fees:(

It's server-side issue. Most likely the underlying storage is on a network resource and the file is still being opened by some other process.

Make sure no server-side process has an open descriptor to the file, contact your server administrator or server hosting provider for assistance if the issue persists.
