Do something like this which recursively deletes all files and directories.

procedure KillAllFiles(FilePath : String);

var
  SearchRec : TSearchRec;

begin
//first kill the directories (recursively)

  FindFirst(filepath, faDirectory, SearchRec);
  repeat
    KillAllfiles(ExtractFilepath(FilePath) + '\' + searchrec.name + '\*.*')
  until (FindNext(SearchRec) = 0)

  FindClose(SearchRec);

// Now kill the files

  FindFirst(filepath, faAnyFile, SearchRec);
  repeat
     deletefile(ExtractFilePath(Filepath)+ '\' + searchrec.name)
  until FindNext(SearchRec) = 0;

   FindClose(SearchRec);
end;

call it like this:

Killallfiles('a:\*.*');

Cheers,

Raymond.
