Deltree command does not work





bambholebaba
I have Win xp sp2 dos ver. 5.1.2600. Deltree command does not work on it and says ''deltree is not recognised as an external or internal command''.
Is there any way to make it work?

If the command hasn't been programmed in, there can be no sufficiently feasible way to get it to work.

The command to remove a whole directory in windows XP is called "RMDIR" (aka "RD").
Try using that instead.

Quote:
Removes (deletes) a directory.

RMDIR [/S] [/Q] [drive:]path
RD [/S] [/Q] [drive:]path

/S Removes all directories and files in the specified directory in addition to the directory itself. Used to remove a directory tree.

/Q Quiet mode, do not ask if ok to remove a directory tree with /S

A lot of old DOS commands was deprecated in windows 2000 and above.

Some commands are more like unix commands like mkdir and rmdir.

since deltree is one of the original DOS commands, it is now deprecated.
