How to batch-delete all OldVersion folders?

A - answer If you need to batch-delete Inventor backup files, i.e. all folders (directories) OldVersions from a given location, you can use the following simple batch file:

@ECHO off  
ECHO Remove OldVersions folders:  
for /d /r ".\" %%a in (OldVersions\) do if exist "%%a" (  
 echo %%a  
 rmdir /s /q "%%a"  

Copy this contents to a .bat file. Then run this BAT file in the requested folder - e.g. from a DOS window or by doubleclick. This batch removes all "OldVersions" folders in the current location and in all subfolders under it, including the folder contents.
