How to delete N files of X type from Y subfolders from a Windows batch file?
I'm trying to write a windows batch file that can delete files from subdirectories. I would rather not hard code the directory structure in, so I can use this process with other projects.
- I need to delete files of X type,
- I have the parent folder C:\MyProject,
- There are Y subfolders C:\MyProject\?,
- There are N files to delete.
Is there a quick del (of type) function I am simply missing?
Actually you can use the standard del command:
c: cd MyProject del /S *.type
Where type is the extension you want to delete and the /S parameter will check in all subfolders of MyProject.
