Deleting all Files & Directories from the specified path using System.IO

In this blog we are going to see how to delete all the files and sub directories from the specified path.

Used Namespaces:

using System.IO;


DeleteAllFiles(new DirectoryInfo("path"));

Used Helper method:

    //Delete all the files from the path.

        void DeleteAllFiles(DirectoryInfo diPath)


            //Gets the files from the specific directory

            foreach (FileInfo fiCurrFile in diPath.GetFiles())





            //Getting Sub directories

            foreach (DirectoryInfo diSubFolder in diPath.GetDirectories())


                DeleteAllFiles(diSubFolder); // Call recursively for all subfolders
