Deleting Files

Because no disk has unlimited storage space and because nearly every file eventually becomes obsolete, DOS provides a way for you to erase or delete files from your disks. The internal ERASE command enables you to delete files you no longer need.

Unlike other DOS commands' short forms, the ERASE command's short form is not simply an abbreviation of the keyword. The short form of ERASE is DEL. Because the short form is shorter, thus quicker to type, it is generally used rather than ERASE.
