Default Can't delete large folder

I have a folder that contains about 5K to 20K cache items in it. I can't seem to delete it because the file manager apps seem to time out or get an error due to the number of items or size.

Any idea on what app could help me get rid of it?

Use adb shell then use rm command to remove.

e.g. 'rm -rf /directory/'
