Is there an easy way, maybe a program or something, to Delete Directory Tree on older DOS, kinda like DELTREE, which won't work on DOS versions below 6.0.

I am using older DOS versions because installation is a lot faster (6.22 is 3 floppies!) and 6.22 has nothing new that I need.

But, deleting Directory Trees can be a real pain sometimes.

I mostly use DOS 5.0

Thanks in advance.

This only works on NT-based operating system, as far as I know.

My go-to tool has been Norton Commander, and this can delete non-empty directories as well.
