WARNING! When you do this, the file system will permanently delete the named folder. If you make a mistake, it is a long and painful process to try to recover - if you even can. I would strongly recommend sticking to your UI file-browser and moving files into the Trash.

Use this only if you're absolutely sure you want the folder removed.
