I'd like to delete the contents for 4 directories in Server 2008 R2.

These directories and their sub-directories are shared.

Trying to delete gives a warning prompt that they are shared and users will not be able to access them any longer.

There are hundreds of directories to delete.

Is there a way to automate this?
