Allow related directories to be deleted

description

We store PDB files in a separate directory and use pointers from the SymbolStore. This allows us to easily obtain all the PDBs for a version.
We also Source Index our PDBs to a UNC directory. We need to be able to delete the matching source code.
 
The directory names are exactly the same, they are just in different parent directories: One for PDBs and one for source e.g. PDBs in x:\BUILD001 and source in v:\source\BUILD001. The Version field contains this directory name - BUILD001.
 
So, given a configurable root for PDBs and Source code, it would be easy to delete these directories.
 
Note that its perfectly fine for a directory not to exist. Just issue a message in the log window to that effect.

So how do you guys do this today, with symstore.exe? Does it delete referenced directories for you? (I don't see any options that would tell it to do this, but I haven't tried it.)
Do you use a script? I'm just trying to make sure I fully understand the feature request.
Thanks!

We have to manually delete the directories.
