Name

rd or rmdir

Synopsis

rd is used to delete empty directories, and optionally, to delete directories and their contents. Unlike in Windows Explorer, files and folders are deleted differently; if you try to use del to delete a directory, it will simply delete all the files in the directory, but the directory itself will remain. rd accepts the following options:

rd [/s] [/q] path
               

Option

Description

path

Specifies the directory to delete.
