Delete Files including subdirectories
Oct 2nd, 2013 at 7:10pm
The task deletes files and empty sub-sub directories using "file aging". The top level sub directory, now emptied, is not being deleted. The removal of empty directories tab is enabled.  Thanks.

The task won't remove the "directory to monitor" itself.

If you use File Age, make sure you do NOT set the option "remember triggered files". I think you have it selected and then the task will only try to remove a directory ONCE (and fail because it still has files or other subdirs).
