Fast deleting a huge folder – recipe

Problem – you have a huge folder with thousands of files and folders. You can delete it in normal mode, but what would you do with thousands of messages (readonly file, do not exists – with svn, etc.) ? The solution is very simple.

1. Run the cmd – command line.

2. Run a command – rd /s /q <file_path>. Example <file_path>: C:\temp\my_very_huge_folder

3. Wait for a process finishing. And it is all what you need!
