The only requirement is that you must be the owner of the entire structure, in order to succesfully remove all folders. If you are unsure about owning the entire structure; then, take ownership of the root folder using any of the following guides:
In some really deep folder structures, you might need to run the application more than once. My worst case was deleting a 230 GB restore, made with robocopy, where I needed to run the app 4 times (actually the app was run once; the button had to be pressed 4 times).
