Re: remove files

Hi:

Define "long". How many files are being deleted? How many files exist in the directory from which you are deleting?

Show the command (or script) that you are using to select and remove the files.

Regards!

Are these files on a network share?

Re: remove files

Hi,

If the files being deleted suddenly increased to thousands, then it will take time to finish.

Just count the files on target directories if it is increased drastically. Sometime some application puts lot of small log files.
Best wishes,

Ganesh.
