I'd like to remove automatically a directory that may be non empty. I tried:
> file.remove(NewDir, recursive=TRUE)

[1] FALSE
Warning message:
In file.remove(NewDir, recursive = TRUE) :   cannot remove file 'Prostate_Validated_mirWalk', reason 'Directory not empty'

Is there another command to remove entire directories including their contents ? Thank you.
