  2. Instructions for deleting files, using CMD

    Hello to the Community,

    Need to delete lots of files; some are large.

    I'm looking for the steps to permanently delete selected files, using CMD (I am NOT a skilled User)

    The standard Delete via File Explorer sometimes doens't work....and/or is very slow to delete.

    Its 2-step operation... to collect, and then delete via the Recycle Bin .... takes
    approximately forever on some files.

    Google research shows me there's some simple ways to use CMD like DEL / RMDIR / /Q /S But I don't know how to use them.

    Could someone send me the specific steps I should enter?

    And also, what is the exact layout/format for defining the file(s) to be deleted, in each CMD string ?

    Thank you,

    Gary

    Delete files using cmd

    Deleting Hiberfil & Pagefile

    You would have to move your Page File to a different drive to get rid of that file, however you can make is smaller by adjusting the size in Windows.

    To get rid of Hyberfile.sys you need to disable hibernation by doing the following:

    • Click Start, and then type cmd in the Start Search box.
    • In the search results list, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as Administrator.
    • When you are prompted by User Account Control, click Continue.
    • At the command prompt, type powercfg.exe /hibernate off, and then press ENTER.
    • Type exit and then press ENTER to close the Command Prompt window
    Then you can delete the hyberfile.sys file.
