delete large directory containing thousands of files

Filed under: Linux — Tags: , , , , , — admin @ 11:22 am

Well if you try to remove a directory with multiple files rm will take a long time also some load on that server .

One solution is to rsync a empty directory .

mkdir empty_dir
rsync -a –delete empty_dir/ yourdirectory/

Also a perl can be made but the rsync is easy for me to remeber .

Some more information about this you can find here
