Removing a folder powershell exchange 2010

I am wondering is there a way to remove a folder of either a users mailbox or a shared mailbox with powershell. I am in a 2010 environment and have been using the search-mailbox with the advanced searchquery with no luck. Have anyone been able to remove a folder and its contents using this command.

It's possible to do this with the search-mailbox cmdlet using the -deletecontent switch. https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff459253(v=exchg.150).aspx goes over how to do this. You would need to craft a search query that returns the folder, but once you have that is should work well for you.

I don't think you can remove a folder with the search-mailbox cmdlets. I actually don't know of a way to delete folders from mailboxes in exchange using the shell. i have looked into this before and never found any true solutions using the exchange shell. i would suggest give yourself access to the mailbox and remove it that way.

Thank you timgreen7077 I think you are absolutely correct. I tried this yesterday and it moved the contents in the folder but not the folder itself.
