Hello everyone,

Just thought of this, I've used dos on many many occasions and I know back in the day of windows 98 there was a extra program called deltree, which would delete directories, even if there was files in them. How would I go about to delete a directory without this little program, on lets say, MSDOS 6.2 or even Window's XP CMD?

Thanks,

"rmdir /s C:\folder"
That should remove the entire directory tree. :)

Thanks. Don't really need it now but it's always helpful to know. :)

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
