C# program to delete an empty and a non-empty directory



In this program, we will learn how to delete or remove directory or sub-directories using C# code? To delete directory, we have to use static method Delete() of Directory class.
Submitted by IncludeHelp, on November 12, 2017

Directory.Delete()

This is a method of 'Directory' class, it is used to delete an empty or a non empty directory.

Syntax:

void Directory.Delete(string path);
void Directory.Delete(string path, bool recursive);

Parameter(s):

  1. path - Location of directory.
  2. recursive - It has two values(TRUE/FALSE), allow or deny recursive deletion.

Program

using System;
using System.IO;

namespace ConsoleApplication1
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main()
        {
            Console.WriteLine("Delete Empty directory (Empty1)");
            Directory.Delete("D:/Empty1");

            Console.WriteLine("Delete Empty directory (Empty2)");
            Directory.Delete("D:/Empty2",false);

            Console.WriteLine("Delete Non-Empty directory (India)");
            Directory.Delete("D:/India",true);
        }
    }
}

Output

Delete Empty directory (Empty1)
Delete Empty directory (Empty2)
Delete Non-Empty directory (India)

Note: In above program, we need to remember, when we use "Directory" class, System.IO namespace must be included in the program.

In this program, method is overloaded, to allow or deny recursive deletion.
