10.4: Delete burn folders on OS X Server
Authored by: linesyouamend on Feb 15, '06 02:14:58PM

If you select an unremovable Burn Folder and Get Info (Command-I), repeatedly click the "Locked" checkbox on and off. Make sure the last time you click it, it's off. Magically, the Burn Folder can be removed. Bizarre.

If it doesn't work right away, keep trying. It will work.

My guess is that an attribute of the contents of the burn folder are twiddled incorrectly. BareBones SuperGetInfo or the SetFile binary in the /Developer/Tools (if you have the Dev tools installed) may fix it as well. I will do some testing and post my results

Someone above mentioned that removing Burn Folders is not an option, you may be able to write a cronjob that will fix the file attributes for the contents in *.fpbf on a regular basis.
