Removes a directory, if it exists.
The `Uninstall-Directory` function removes a directory. If the directory doesn't exist, it does nothing. If the directory has any files or sub-directories, you will be prompted to confirm the deletion of the directory and all its contents. To avoid the prompt, use the `-Recurse` switch.
`Uninstall-Directory` was added in Carbon 2.1.0.
