Unable to recurisly delete folder

See original GitHub issue

The below code seems to generate a folder not empty Exception but I’m unsure why.

Would you have any idea’s for me to try.

    var info = vhdbNtfs.GetDirectoryInfo("AppData\\Local");
    if (info != null)
        var dirs = info.GetDirectories();
        foreach (var dir in dirs)
catch(Exception ex)
    var error = ex;

Unable to delete non-empty directory

My understanding is that Delete(true) should recursively delete all folders/files.
