    Help to delete a huge amount of folders


    Hello Guys,
    So i was trying to install a new language on my laptop.
    and i downloaded the language file which is a RAR folder
    then i extracted it directly to OS(C*Smile
    the problem is i got a super huge amount of folders and files extracted there
    almost 12000 folders or something which made my local disk C looks so confusing and i can't find any stuff i want or need there!

    My Question is how can i delete all these language files i accidentally extracted there without deleting something else by mistake?

    I'd really really appreciate any help since i got so confused and i dont want to mess things up

    Regards

    :)

    Help to delete a huge amount of folders

    If you view your hard-drive C with explorer.exe -- can you spot which folders to delete? If not, you will need to use a zip-file viewer and print out the directory listing within that zip file. Using that printout, you can delete the folders you no longer want.

    I am sure this would be an easy thing to do with batch (.bat) file. I am not very good at batch code so I won't try and give you the code myself, but there are a lot of forums out there where you could ask people to help you with the code (e.g. DOS Batch Forum - DosTips.com)

    A while back I needed to delete, replace and rename large numbers of files sequentially and asked in the forums and got an answer almost straight away. Just couple lines of simple code is all that's needed.

    Otherwise if it is on the C:/ root I imagine there aren't that many folders you want to keep there. Why cant you select everything, deselect the ones that should be there and want to keep (C:/Windows, C:/Program Files C:/Intel etc etc) and delete the rest? Most people don't normally have more that 10 folders on their root C:/,

    Edge takes up huge amounts of memory: At times my computer bogs down horribly.* Loading Taskmanager, which can take several minutes, shows Edge taking up 1gb of memory (more or less).* It is usually 100mb or so.
