On my apache webserver I was using Dreamweaver and uploaded all the _notes folders. They are causing problems in my ZenCart shopping cart software and so now I need to delete them all. The problem is there is over 300.

Is there some sort of script I could run that would look though all the folders and delete every folder called _notes?

Thank you,
Jacob Bushnell

what makes you think dreamweaver will never create _notes directories again and again?

@gheist: Once you turn off the design notes feature in BOTH of the two places it no longer creates them. What often creates confusion is users often only turn it off in the Design Notes area and forget to turn off the Maintain Design Notes under the FTP info area as well.
