Options tab of Remove Folder Action allows setting the Action to either remove empty folders only or to delete folders including their subfolders and files.

Delete specified folder Removes the folder with all files and subfolders in it:
  • Simply delete folder and all its contents.
  • Attempt to delete folder, and do nothing if it is not empty.
  • Try to delete folder, and fail with an error if it is not empty.
Delete empty folders only Removes folders only if they contain no files:
  • Process all subfolders, and specified folder too.
  • Process subfolders only.
