To be honest, I was told many years ago to stay away from Purge when Remove "does the trick".

Purge removes not only what is being requested, but also programs that
depend on it, and, in some instances, things that the program depends upon.

Remove just gets rid of what is requested.

By way of example.
The only house at the end of a cul de sac.

Remove the house will simply tear down the house, leaving a vacant lot,
but with the infrastructure for utilities, etc in place.

Purge the house will remove the house, the utility poles, the utility
lines (sewerage, water), power, telephone, cable, and all the other
infrastructure along the cul-de-sac. In the "best/worst case scenario",
purge would remove the entire cul de sac, leaving no evidence that there
ever was a road there, much less a house.
