Bulk delete

Currently, you cannot delete a folder if it has subfolders; and there is no way to delete a large number of items or folders without doing so individually and confirming each one.  Very time-consuming if there are a lot to remove, such as when importing or reorganising items.


It would be good to have an additional checkbox on the "delete folder" form for "delete all subfolders as well".  This would not normally be checked.


Another checkbox could be present for "delete contents only".  This would delete everything in the folder (and in subfolders, if the previous checkbox were ticked) but not the actual folder itself.  Alternatively, an "empty folder" option rather than "delete folder"?


In addition, in the items pane, you can drag and drop items individually to move them to new folders.  Maybe also have a wastebasket to drop them into?  This could then be emptied using the "empty folder" option I mentioned previously.
