Deleting directories!

P: n/a
Lee
Hi,

when deleting a directory using;-

string dir = "whatever";
Directory.Delete(dir);

it fails if files/directories exist within the directory being deleted. is
there an easy way of deleting the directory and all contents without having
to recurse through the entire directory deleting each one ?

thanks in advance

there is overload where you specify recurse

Directory.Delete (String, Boolean) Deletes the specified directory
and, if indicated, any subdirectories in the directory.
example
System.IO.Directory.Delete("c:\MyDir\temp", true);
I hope this helps
