I run a software tool that often generates 75,000 - 100,000 small files that need to be deleted after the software exits. Right now, it can take 8 - 10 minutes to permanently delete all these files from a single run, and I usually have 4 - 8 runs to deal with, so do the math...
I have tried shift-del to permanently delete but it doesn't work - Windows still copies everything to the recycle bin. (I thought shift-del was supposed to bypass the recycle bin...)
Also, while moving the files to the recycle bin, I often get an error message: "Error 0x80070050: The file exists."
Bottom line is that it takes a *really* long time just to delete these files and I need a quicker way to do it.
What's the solution?
Thanks in advance,
