There are several ways delete file or folder in Python

  • os.remove() removes a file.
  • os.rmdir() removes an empty directory.
  • shutil.rmtree() deletes a directory and all its contents.

Path objects from the Python 3.4+ pathlib module also expose these instance methods:

  • pathlib.Path.unlink() removes a file or symbolic link.
  • pathlib.Path.rmdir() removes an empty directory.
