Speed up deletion of Windows.old

Recommended Posts

Hi there,


just watched CCleaner take 15 minutes to delete Windows.old which seems to go file by file by file...


Why not speed up the process by executing something like:


del /f/s/q foldername > nul           //quick delete of files
rmdir /s/q foldername                  //remove directory and structure

15 minutes is good.  In my experience, it's taken a lot longer than that.

CC has always taken ages, whereas I find CLEANMGR does the job nicely in removing Windows.old
