I was at work a couple of years ago, waiting while some directory with zillions of images (or something like that) was deleting, and Nick sent me this bat file that makes the delete process a little quicker


del /f/s/q "C:\SomeDirectory" > nul
rmdir /s/q "C:\SomeDirectory"


Delete lots of files without the recycle bin

How many people remember this?
Hold the shift key down when you delete the file(s), and kept it down when it prompts Are you sure?
