Use the recursive function I posted. It iterates through each directory and deletes portions by deleting files one by one, then directories as they are emptied.

I am curious ... How many name collisions have you ever had, Koen? I've had two in 25 years of development, and both existed before I began using naming conventions, the most recent was circa 2002.

Scores of separate production apps, used daily by countless users. Two name collisions in 25 years, and neither made it outside of initial development. Both were found and fixed immediately.

Best regards,
