Application that parse folders based on folder format?

Is there a nice tool that can retrieve all folders in a certain directory that have a .v1 or .v2 folder extension (not file extension).  I need a list so I can delete those directories instead of manually doing it.  If anyone finds a tool or command that can do this, thank you!

Powershell; this only tells you what it would delete. Remove the -WhatIf to delete the folders for real:
Get-ChildItem -Path C:\Temp -Recurse -Directory -Filter '*.v?' | Where-Object {$_.Name -match '\.v[12]\Z'} | Remove-Item -Recurse -WhatIf

Thanks this is great, however it won't delete certain directories in the subfolders.  Is there a gui app that can filter these?
The directories it can't delete are usually ones where either
* the user attempting the deletion doesn't have the required permissions
* the item in question is opened in an application.
Neither of these cases can be resolved using a GUI or any other application. In the first case, an account with the required permissions needs to be used, in the second case, the application(s) holding the item(s) open need to be closed.

The file path is too long...error

I deleted it manually with proper permissions and that worked.  I like the PS command, however a GUI would be better.
Don't know anything specific, GUI tool for that, sorry.
