The Delete Folder activity deletes a folder, sub-folders, or the entire folder tree of a directory on the local file system or a network location specified using a UNC path. You can delete temporary folders that were created when a runbook runs or you can use this activity to purge data that has been recently archived.
Before you configure the Delete Folder activity, you need to determine the following:
The folder name you are targeting.
Whether you are going to delete the entire tree; delete the sub-folders only; or delete just the directory.
Use the following information to configure the Delete Folder activity.
|Path||Type the path of the folder that you are targeting.|
|Delete the folder only if it is empty||Select this option to delete the folder only if there are no files or sub-folders in it.|
|Delete all files and sub-folders||Select this option to delete the specified folder and all sub-folders and files contained in that folder.|
The following table lists the published data items.
