What error are you getting?  You will probably need to quote the
directory, ie:
  rm -rf '~/.jpilot/Backup/Archive_2003...'

If that doesn't work, try to cd to the directory.  If you can do that,
try deleting all the files inside.  Then cd up one directory and try
removing the directory.

Those are from the jpilot-backup plugin I wrote.  You can find more
information by going to my homepage, in my sig.
