In our PowerShell scripts for different folder it's required to delete if exist and create empty folder. To avoid to repeat folder name in three commands I've created a function

function DeleteIfExistsAndCreateEmptyFolder($dir )
      if ( Test-Path $dir ) {
            Remove-Item -Recurse -Force $dir
    New-Item -ItemType Directory -Force -Path $dir

I've also used this function in  answer for SuperUser question How can I copy a directory, overwriting its contents if it exists using Powershell?
