If you're talking about the All Files folder on the left side of a Finder window (called the Sidebar) then yes, it will be gone from everywhere if you delete it.

I personally got rid of the All My Files folder from the sidebar since I saw no practical use for it.

Thanks for the comment above, Chas_m - 'All My Files' has been annoying me for months - just went to Finder Preferences and unchecked it from the sidebar - much better! Dave :)

I got rid of it long ago. For some reason, it shows up as one of the default items in the Finder Sidebar. I'm sure some folks find it useful, I just have never found a use for it.
