The /remove command can be used to delete a file permanently or sends it to the recycle bin. The filename cannot be a wildcard pattern. This command prints "* Removed '<filename>'", to avoid that message, use the dot prefix (i.e. use /.remove).
/remove -b <filename>
- -b - Send the file to the recycle bin
- <filename> - the file to remove. Your filename can be case-insensitive, but cannot include ?* wildcards. In the absence of a full path, filenames are assumed to be relative to $mircdir. If the <filename> contains any spaces, it must be enclosed in quotes.
Note: If filename contains 2+ consecutive spaces, this command searches for a filename without the duplicate space, and deletes that file instead, if it exists.
create and write to a file: /write foo.txt Hello There remove the file: /remove foo.txt delete a filename containing space from downloads subfolder: //.remove $qt(downloads\test filename.txt)
Note: The dot prefix hides both the success message and the "no such file" error.
