Re: How can I Check the permissions of the folder,and correct them?by crabbdean (Pilgrim)

Well I don't know your system but on Win32 its tricky. Here is how. Its actually a subroutine to check if a directory is empty and then remove it (of course you could just force it to remove it with the the "rmtree" command, but better to be safe).
Also uncomment the commented-out section if you want it to display the folder permissions mask before you alter them.
What I don't like about this code is that doing a directory listing to check if a directory is empty is slow, especially if a directory is large. There could be an easy command to do that that I'm simply not aware of (probable!).
