    Does anyone know of a function to delete a folder?

      One modern and portable way is to use Node.js. Have a look in the Extras -> Node For Max Overview -> File System. It should work in js too. Or there is this, in Java. And probably many other solutions…

      Thank you @PDELGES and @SOURCE AUDIO. I'm already using the NodeJS solution; a C API function was what I was looking for. (Windows RemoveDirectory() from "fileapi.h" cannot be used). Meanwhile, J. Bernstein informed in the facebook group that no API function for that was made available.
