Can not delete folder in version 0.99.1 for MacOS

Choose a folder in the browser, try to delete using menu from menu bar or right click menu. The folder disappeared as if it was deleted but it was not.

I have seen this issue in previous versions. It was fixed and now it is back.

I also cannot delete, but mine is for images. I went through and thought I culled a whole gallery of images, but then went back and it had the original number of files. So I tried to individually delete some of the images again, and nothing. Won't delete. I am running on Windows 10, with most updated version.

Let me correct the issue as below.
Local files in Mac: no issue.
Shared NAS folder with MAC (smb protocol, full Read & Write): can not delete folders either in thumbnails or folder view.

Previously I reported a similar issue here.
"Failed to delete external drive folder in the left of a folder tree. Mac OS, 0.98.4"

Ok, i can reproduce. If you uncheck Settings>File operations>Use recycle bin, it works?
