Guys,

not sure if it has been asked before, but I'd like RD to support the same switches as the del command.

/s subdirs
/f also readonly
/h also hidden and system
/c continue on errors

Not that Ruud couldn't work on it, but shelling out and running RD /S /Q is very fast and unseen by the user anyways.

Think other items are consuming most of his time for updates.

I would like to see del support folders instead.
like the unix look-alike:
rm -f -r *
(remove --force --recursive all)

which I use almost everyday

there is no use with the recusivity if we stumble with folders with files.
and that's where kix currently has the limit.

For now I'm using the DelDir Udf.

Patrick,

Just curious since you seem to have a need for this, but how about timing a SHELL to RD /S /Q of the data and running any of the native KiX methods or UDFs and let us know which is faster and by how much based on a given folder size with multiple files and folders.

hmm...
fastest way should be to directly modify the MFT but afaik, kix does not provide way to go there
