Allow a folder to be deleted with files inside of it
It is exhausting trying to delete large folders within OneDrive. Since there are multiple folders within folders within folders, I have spent hours trying to delete one large folder from my OneDrive account. Due to the feature that does not allow me to delete a folder until that folder is empty, I have to manually go through and delete everything within every folder within every folder within every folder before I can delete my entire folder. This is a huge waste of time. I would like there to be the option like there is on other applications - desktop files, Google Drive, pretty much any other application that has folders - please let me delete a folder, which will delete everything in the folder at the same time.
what an incredibly stupid policy that doesn't allow the user at least the option to delete all the files/folders under the top one at our discretion.
I find it remarkable that this should have been designed like this.
I agree! I've started moving folders into a folder called 'delete' because it's too time consuming to actually delete all the sub-folders and files.
Couldnt agree more. Ridiculous that I have to go through and delete every file within a folder before the folder can be deleted.
Even Dropbox offers this function. For Microsoft to stay competitive they need to be innovative - be the leaders, and not just the followers.
This, this this! Users are frustrated without this feature and end up leaving/using old, out dated materials because it's such a pain to delete folders w/items.
