The Question is:
I have a directory containing about 40.000 files, is their a FAST way
to delete this directory, including its contents ? purge isn't an option,
they're all different.
(for the moment I probably need a whole day, or even more)
The Answer is :
DFU on the Freeware can do this.
A reverse deletion -- from the last entry in the directory to the
first -- can also be used.
And an upgrade to OpenVMS V7.2 will provide access to the larger
directory caches and to the faster directory I/O processing.
