I have no issues running Remove-Item -path D:\temp\FolderToRemove -Recurse -Force on Win8.1/PS4.0 April 24, 2014 at 1:13 am #14765 Nithun DamodaranParticipant Hi Stein, Thanks for your time, below is my code Remove-Item -path D:\inetpub\foldertoremove -force I am not using -recurse as i want to delete entire thing(sub folders). Am running it on ISE and its prompting for confirmation please correct me if am wrong April 24, 2014 at 1:18 am #14766 Stein PetersenParticipant You can test it on a different folderstructure first, but you have to use -recurse to make it remove subdirectories. If you read the help file for remove-item it will point to a different method in example 4.
