Use the following CLI command to delete a folder from an S3 bucket:

$ aws s3 rm s3://bucket/folder --recursive

--recursive is useful when you need to delete all the subfolders as well.

Not so useful if you have hundred of thousands of items. This could take hours...
Yes, I agree, it's very time-consuming!

There is a delete-folder option, but you need to know the folder-id:
