image upload folder is not writable

I'm getting an error message when I click the Browse Server button to upload an image:

error: "/[mywebsite]/imagesupload/.files/" is not writable

I've double-checked the folder permissions which are set to 777. This was working previously but seems to have stopped working at some point. Any idea what could be causing this?

Try deleting the .files folder entirely. It should be recreated automatically with the correct permissions. Also check the permissions of the /[mywebsite]/imagesupload/ folder itself. Some servers seem to prefer 757 over 777, maybe try that too.
