Dim strSubfolder As String
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

strFolder = "C:\AAtest\Folder1\" '<---- Folder name goes here
' This gets the first file under the root folder
strSubfolder = Dir(strFolder, vbDirectory)
' This loops through the files/subfolders under the root folder, ending when the empty
' string is returned by the dir function - meaning that there are no more files to loop
Do While Len(strSubfolder) > 0
If strSubfolder <> "." And strSubfolder <> ".." Then
' Deletes the file - if it is a folder
fso.deletefolder strFolder & strSubfolder
' Gets the next file under the root folder
