Exemplifying Working Directory

Consider the following working directory:

Our exemplifying working directory contains one folder called my subdirectory.

 

Example: Delete Working Directory from Computer Using unlink() Function

The following R code illustrates how to remove a working directory from a computer using the unlink function in the R programming language.

Have a look at the following R code:

unlink("C:/Users/Joach/Desktop/new directory/my subdirectory", recursive = TRUE)   # Apply unlink()

After running the previous R syntax, our working directory should look like this:

 

empty working directory

 

As you can see in the previous screenshot, we have removed our subdirectory and our main directory is completely empty.
