If you've never had any files under //Spiral/... or you've already
obliterated them, then I suspect you're being left with only the depot to
try p4 help depot  and look for the -d option description.
If you do a sync //Spiral/...#1 and get files, then the obliterate still
hasn't removed all the files under //Spiral/...

We have a couple of trees with no files and would like to make them go away
permanently.  Obliterate, i.e. "p4 obliterate -y //Spiral/...", has no
