That’s indeed precisely what Oberon0.ClearDirectory does:

  PROCEDURE ClearDirectory; (*clear file directory (root page)*)
      u: FileDir.DirEntry; a: FileDir.DirPage;
  BEGIN a.mark := FileDir.DirMark; a.m := 0; a.p0 := 0; u.adr := 0; u.p := 0;
    FOR i := 0 TO FileDir.FnLength-1 DO u.name[i] := 0X END ;
    FOR i := 0 TO FileDir.DirPgSize-1 DO a.e[i] := u END ;
    Kernel.PutSector(FileDir.DirRootAdr, a)
  END ClearDirectory;
