      Check the deleted folder to see if any of the recordings are in there and if so delete them permanently, never had this issue so I don't know if it will work but worth checking.

      Thats the problem you see - there are no programmes in the folder and yet I cannot delete the folder itself. I've even removed them permanently from the 'Deleted' area.

      Usually if there are only two programmes left in a folder deleting one of them removes the folder and moves the remaining programme into the top level folder which will have a generic name (not the programme name). Top level folders cannot be deleted.

      I'm assuming that the programme that the folder is named after is part of a series. if so and the programme is still being broadcast record it to see whether it gets placed in the folder in question. Do you use the Sky+ App? If so can you check whether this folder appears in the planner display on the app?

      If all else fails you could perform a full system reset but this would delete all your current recordings as well as any scheduled recordings. Why is this empty folder so annoying? Unless selecting it shows that it is using a lot of disk space I would be inclined to ignore it.
