    Tried to use deletree in a Dos window in MSN's Home Edition of XP and it won't work. Have sent files & Folders to recycle bin and they won't delete. What Gives. Is there a different command for deletree? :rolleyes:

    Rmdir (rd)Removes (that is, deletes) a directory.

    Syntax
    rmdir [Drive:]Path [/s] [/q]

    rd [Drive:]Path [/s] [/q]

    Parameters
    [Drive:]Path
    Specifies the location and name of the directory that you want to delete.
    /s
    Removes the specified directory and all subdirectories including any files. Use /s to remove a tree.
    /q
    Runs rmdir in quiet mode. Deletes directories without confirmation.
    /?
    Displays help at the command prompt.

    (The new "deltree". Type: "help" to see all commands.)
