    Hello,
    I have a folder that I created on my SD card with about 150 pictures that I loaded from my computer. I decided I don't want them on my phone anymore and now I simply want to delete the folder. When I try to do this it says my folder is not empty. Please don't tell me I have to delete each file individually before I can delete this folder.
    I know I can always connect up to my PC and manage the card through windows, but at the moment, I'm at work and don't have my data cable. I'm using OI File Manager. Is there any way to just delete the folder?

    OI File manager requires individual deltion. However Astro File manager will do it for you. Astro is the best one I have tried so far (Personally)

    Astro File Manger

    agreed.

    Astro File Manager is great and can delete whole folders.

    I use ES File Explorer though which is great as well

    Astro is nice.
    EStrongs allows you to cut/copy/paste files/folders from your Droid to PC wirelessly. Astro doesn't :(

    Astro lets you back up widgets however, Estrongs does not :(

    I use both :)
