- I'm trying to delete a directory.
- Originally used rm -rf to delete it and its contents.
- Contents were deleted, permission denied to delete the folder itself.

- Checked permissions (755)
- User is owner
- Still can't delete directory


I can use sudo to get rid of it, but can anyone explain to me why I can't delete it as the owner?

Edit: Nevermind. Figured it out. I didn't have write permissions in the pwd.
