 If you select a non-empty directory and delete it, it will take a huge
 amount of time because Cyberduck will list it recursively to delete file
 contents in each subdirectory first. This is very inefficient for large
 directories and can take hours to delete!
 There is a trick on FTP servers to delete non-empty directories that
 should be used.
