VB.NET UWP/WinRT Box: Delete Folder

Back to Index

Move a folder to the trash. The recursive parameter must be included in order to delete folders that aren't empty. This example deletes the folder w/ id = 47885473705. An empty 204 response will be returned upon successful deletion. An error is thrown if the folder is not empty and the ‘recursive’ parameter is not included.
