I have a folder, "myFolder". In "myFolder", I have many subfolders.

I know that if the subfolder is less than 10MB, it can be deleted.

Instead of checking the folder step by step, how can I write a batch job to help me delete just the folders?

Yes, but surely you wish to delete files inside the folders as well. For all folders, by themselves, are smaller than 10mb. – Rook May 27 '10 at 2:19
yes, I "myFolder", there have many sub folders , and files. ONLY the files in the sub folders can be deleted. outside the sub folder, and inside the myFolder that can not be deleted. thz. – user28167 May 27 '10 at 2:22
This is really a message which belongs at stack overflow. The closest I could find was… which at least gives you the directory size but has to scan each folder which is incredibly slow. You should use a scripting language. – Daisetsu May 27 '10 at 3:11

If this is a one-time operation, any tool that shows you the sizes of your subfolders will do.

The post How do I find the largest files and folders on a drive? gives you many tools (and more tools in this question).
