Net Share syntax Help

The server service was unable to recreate the share SafetyOnlyA because the directory C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\SafetyOnlyA no longer exists.  Please run "net share SafetyOnlyA /delete" to delete the share, or recreate the directory C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\SafetyOnlyA.

I removed this share but get this msg in my event log. Can someone help me with the syntax for net share to delete this.  I have tried and can't get it right.  I dont' really understand how to write tis from the syntax I found.       {sharename | devicename | drive:path} /DELETE

I only want to remove the one share you see so are you saying to write the syntax like this.

SafetyOnly A  C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\SafetyOnlyA /delete
The required syntax is specified in the event log; just use it as is:
net share SafetyOnlyA /delete
