I'm using external NTFS HDD via Tuxera-NTFS.Suddenly some of my folders turn to be protected (I don't now how it has happen):

enter image description here

I'm trying to delete such folders but still without any luck. I've tried to uncheck 'Protected' checkbox in folder properties pane, I've tried rebooting, I'm always logged as admin but still can't delete those folders.

Any ideas?

UPDATE 'rm -rf' says 'Operation not permitted'

Have you tried the hints in the article, posted in this answer? Otherwise, as NTFS-support is experimental on OSX, I'd delete then from a Windows machine.
