How to remove a folder if contents are empty


  • I have created a folder using Group Policy if a member is part of a specific AD Group. Also, if a member is added to this specific AD Group, it will create a shortcut to a folder location.

    If the member is taken out of this AD Group, I want the shortcut and the folder to be removed. I have the shortcut working correctly, however the folder is not being removed.

    I have the 'Delete this folder (if emptied)' checkbox checked, but still no deletion of the folder...

    It should look like:

    Best Regards,
