Yes I know about more when 15 items selected, no I just trying with 2-3 files.

%1 not working even with single file or folder. %2 works with single, but no success with multiple.

I'm afraid that I'm not sure why it's not working for you with multiple items selected with it being used in Classic Shell instead.

%2 is the problem, I think its for single file only.

I tested %2 using the method in the tutorial, and it wouldn't work at all. Only %1 worked using that method.

I'm not sure what would work with Classic Shell though.

So if I have it right Shawn I can delete permanently everything I pick down to just having the OS left on the drive? and I can use The Bare Foot Kid's tut to delete the whole drive?

I have a few old drives that I want to scrub up and this looks like what I want - but I just to make sure.

Hello John,

This is mostly for permanently deleting individual files. If you wanted to delete everything on a HDD, then using the "clean" command below would be a faster way to wipe it.

Disk - Clean and Clean All with Diskpart Command

This is pretty excellent. I was still pretty new to batch files, before reading this, I'm kind of stoked that I have a way to put my own commands into the context menu now. Did not know u could do that with registry =)

Is there any way to have it prompt user for something like "Are you sure you want to delete?"

Would it be possible to put an in-line prompt on the command in the registry? Like, I know this is not real syntax, 'Prompt "Are you sure?" | if yes do "sdelete.exe /p 3 /s %1"' ?? Did that make any sense? Can you do a prompt and a command all in the same line?

Or what if i put that sdelete.exe command into a batch script with the prompt, and the registry command could just run the batch file? How would that look?

Making another delete menu in the context menu?
I use 64bit windows 7. I want to make another delete menu in the context menu(right click menu). Its function should be exactly the same as preexsiting delete, but its name is 'xdelete'. So one can press X (instead of D) to delete files or folders. I found a helpful document:...
