Windows Recursively Delete Folders

Dreamweaver creates _notes folders in each directory when you upload a file. Recently switched to Aptana and wanted to remove all of these folders that are now useless clutter in my filesystem. Here’s how to do it on Windows CLI in one fell swoop:

> cd \path\to\my\project\folder
> for /d /r . %d in (_notes) do @if exist "%d" rd /s/q "%d"
