How can you remove a folder which contains files and other folders.  Is it possible to delete these all at once if you know the path to the files and how?

You will have to remove them seperatly!

RmDir path             'for the folders
Kill path              'for the files

ex:
Kill "c:\new\*.*"      'delete all files in the new folder

Just write a small function to read through your filesystem and delete whatever you want to delete...

Good Luck!

I was hoping there was a way to delete them all at once same as deleting a folder in explorer
