How do I remove a full directory in Linux?
To remove a directory that is full with other files or directories, use the below command.
rm -r directory
Note: In the above example, you would replace "directory" with the name of the full directory you wish to delete. So if the directory was named files, you would type: rm -r files
When attempting to remove a directory using a command such as the rmdir command, you may receive a prompt such as "rmdir: ‘dir’: Directory not empty" and be unable to delete the directory.
