    Hi there,

    I get the following error, not a major issue but annoying:
    Old directory removal failed for some reason. You may want to do this manually.

    How can I fix this? Please let me know what additional information you require.

    Many thanks,



    Hi Philippe,

    To remove your old directories manually, go into wp-content and wp-content/updraft, and in both look for entities ending in “-old”. To prevent reoccurrence, make sure the file permissions on wp-content are set so that PHP has read/write access.
