Making DEL Safer

Making DEL Safer

Probably 99.9% of all accidental command-line deletions occur when you use wildcard characters to delete multiple files. A question mark in the wrong place or a *.* in the wrong folder can lead to disaster.

Note

The symbols * and ? are wildcard characters. You use ? to match a single character, and you use * to match any number of characters.
