As an afterthought, the function I gave you will also try and remove the
directories. If you want to keep the directory structure intact, change

       if (is_dir($cDirectory . $file)) {
           deleteFiles($filter, $cDirectory . $file);

...to this...

       if (is_dir($cDirectory . $file)) {
           deleteFiles($filter, $cDirectory . $file);
