The directory is left in the Directory table.


Search for the folder in the Tables, then delete all entries with that name.  Ensure that you have not left any orphaned entires in the tables, by right clicking while on the Tables tab and selecting Show Error. 

If the name of the folder is something used often in the project, rename it to something unique then search for the entries.
