unnamed folder error

Sep 28, 2008 at 6:40 AM
hello,$0fired up SB but it isnt showing contents of buckets (which list fine)..   however, im sure its due to a folder with no name, which was created by a S3/php class script..  (plus, i cant delete the folder, at least via firefox extension)..    any suggestions would be very appreciated!$0$0$0$0$0vin$0

Hi there - would you mind explaining this a bit further?

 - Can you list your buckets? (top-level folders in spaceblock)
 - Can you list your bucket with the problematic subfolder?
 - Is the problem that your subfolder is simply hidden?

You should be able to delete a bucket and all of its contents, no matter how problematic, by right-clicking the bucket (top-level folder) and choosing delete.

Hope that helps,
- John

I'm curious as to what the bucket listing looks like, can you log on to http://s3.amazonaws.com/my.bucket/index.html  and use the "list bucket" command to find out the name of the key (or keys) inside your bucket that are causing the problem? 

I don't need the other keys, just the problematic ones - also feel free to scramble everything but the slashes ('/') before sending.  (use the codeplex contact link on my profile page)
