Accelerate deleting with FC XE?

#1 Post by Dirk » 27.01.2014, 09:29

Deleting (permanently) with the FC function is extremely slow (about 12.000 files about half an hourer, 1 hour) on my system and uses (at the moment) very much RAM, about 1,4 GB. Can I make FC doing it faster / using less RAM?

To use e.g. FastCopy for deleting, what do I have to insert in the "File/folders operations" window?

Use the following but change the path according to your installation of FastCopy:

C:\Tools\FastCopy\FastCopy.exe /auto_close /open_window /cmd=delete %ActivSel%

You may change some of the parameters to better fit your needs.
