Why can't I delete a usb folder when in Asus ax88U

Hello All-I am trying to delete a folder in the Merlin Asus Samba screen. Whenever I try to delete the folder, I get a 'Failer to delete share folder". I try to turn off enable Samba and try to delete folder, but even this does not help. I am using a Mac and have unmounted the drive too. Any ideas?

Thanks.

Yes. I was able to delete them by moving network USB drive to my laptop and delete them. There were two folders that were log and I wasn't sure if I should delete them. The folders were temp folder and network trash folder. Should I delete them?

I don't recognise those folder names so I don't think they're anything to do with the router.

You could try using winscp (or a mac equivilant) , logging into the router through that using scp log in , then going to the /tmp/mnt directory and deleting any rogue folders there, without having to plug the usb directly into another computer.
