Code:
alias find {
  set %i 1
  :next
  set %x $findfile(C:\,*.*,%i)
  if (%x == $null) goto done
  if (%x != $null) { echo %x }
  inc %i
  goto next
  :done
}


I wouldn't remove it though, you'd remove everything in C:\, why don't you just echo it, as shown above.

deleting every file in C:\ is stupid but....
Code:
alias remdir {
.echo -q $findfile(C:\,*.*,0,.remove $1-)
}

Then by all means go for it,
change echo %x to remove %x
just don't come back and complain that something has gone horribly wrong, anyways, I don't think it will delete everything because it will most likely freeze.

Doing that in mIRC would be ugly, it would require recursion. Just use the DOS deltree command.

should work, i just typed: //.echo -q $findfile(C:\,*.mp3,0,echo -a $1-), it echo'd things like: C:\Documents and Settings\MAT\My Documents\My Music\Tidy Trax - Tidy Boys vs Tidy Girls - Blow Ya Load.mp3
some files that are in use wont get deleted :\
