Keeping Your Directory Structure Intact After Deleting Folder Contents

A quick way to empty a folder and all its subfolders—while keeping your directory structure intact —is to run the DOS command DEL with additional arguments.

For example, the DEL <DirectoryPath> /s/q/f will delete all the files inside the directory path and all its subfolders. You can discover all the DEL command options by typing DEL /? and then pressing ENTER.
