Delete all Files in a Subdirectory

Delete all Files in a Subdirectory There are two rules we will need to follow before removing a subdirectory.
All files in the subdirectory must be deleted.
 
NOTE:
Never type DEL *.* when we are in the root directory. It will destroy all DOS files that are necessary to boot and operate the computer.
 
Directions:
1. Type: cd \info and press Enter.
2. Type: dir and press Enter.
3. Three files should be listed.
4. Type: del *.* and press Enter.
5. DOS will ask you if you are sure? (Y/N)
6. Type: Y and press Enter.
Now that our subdirectory is empty, we can delete the subdirectory.
