this command dos delete folder, files and all subfolders

RD /S /Q will not work on windows 98 or NT 4.0. I don't know about ME or 2000. The older versions of windows used the DELTREE command instead.

Windows 9x-based systems:

cd <dir>
del /s/q *.*
cd ..
rd <dir>

Windows NT-based systems:

del /f/s/q <dir>\*.*
rd <dir>

I'm sure there's some DLL that's been around since Win95 that would probably provide an object-oriented way to do this.
