I have a tripod site created with CityDesk. Recently, due to lack of space, I deleted a folder from the site directly, and then deleted it from CityDesk. Now, when I try to publish, I get an error that the files in the folder can't be deleted. I tried publishing 'all' files, to no avail.
Your best bet is to delete the file 'citydesk.xml' from your server, that way when you next publish CityDesk won't know what files are already there and not try to delete a folder that doesn't exist. (Does that make sense?)
I actually tried that one (it was on the knowledge base). No luck....
Strange... If you delete the entire site and republish and still get a problem then there must be something odd going on with your host...
