Reverse - you can't delete a dir if it still has content. I don't see where you validate in your code that the directory is empty - do you know it is empty already?

    I did not know it was supposed to be empty in order for the delete to work. We delete these directories at the end of the day regardless of content. They do have some subdirectories and *.rdb files that are discarded daily. How would I delete everything under iq whether its empty or contains data? We usually telnet into the server and do a rm -r * to remove the folders.
