I want to schadule a task to delete the content of a folder (Files and Subfolders) of a specific folder.

I have tried the following Batch command:
del /S /Q /F  c:\test1\

but the problem with that is that, that command does not delete the subfolders, all what it do is delete the files in the main folder and the files inside the subfolders, but it does not delete the subfolders as what i need.

is there any other batch command that can do that?

And another thins is how to schadule the .Bat script using the Windows task schaduler.
