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. :)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
