Rmdir--Notes

Cannot delete directory with hidden or system files

You cannot delete a directory that contains files, including hidden or system files. If you attempt to do so, Windows NT displays the following message:

The directory not empty

Use the dir command to list hidden and system files and the attrib command to remove hidden and system attributes from files. For more information, see those commands.

Using the backslash character with the path parameter

If you insert a backslash (\) before the first directory name in path, Windows NT treats the directory as a subdirectory of the root directory--regardless of your current directory. If you do not insert a backslash before the first directory name in path, Windows NT treats the directory as a subdirectory of the current directory.

Deleting the current directory

You cannot use rmdir to delete the current directory. You must first change to a different directory (not a subdirectory of the current directory) and then use rmdir with a path. If you attempt to delete the current directory, Windows NT displays a message in the following format:

The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.
