Deleting recursively via ssh

Question asked by Chris Oliver on Jan 30, 2014

I have a folder structure, that it 15 layers deep consisting of 894 folders in total. The folder structure was copied there by accident, and deleting with through the windows browser gives permission denied.

When I SSHed into the HNAS, i can see the folder structure, but i can't delete the folders from the top down. I can't seem to find a way to recursively deleted the entire folder structure. Nor can i do the same for changing the ownership. Only one at a time from the bottom up.

Is there a way do this?
