    How can I delete this folder and all its contents "C:\RECYCLER" silently with batch commands..??

    I tried "DEL C:\RECYCLER" But I keep getting this error: "Could Not Find C:\RECYCLER\*"
    but the folder is still there, as a Hidden System folder...

    what am i missing here to get this to work right..???

    why not use ccleaner as can be configured to clean out everything when going into windows?

    because i didn't ask for ccleaner,
    i just want to do what i asked in the first post.
    Delete the folder C:\RECYCLER" silently with a batch command - no prompt.
    anybody know how i can do this...
    I figured this out:
    ATTRIB C:\RECYCLER -h -s ... works
    BUT
    DEL C:\RECYCLER\*.* .... doesn't
    the folder still stays there...???
    i want to get rid of it...??
    what can i do..??

    Ok..that cracked me up.

    You wrote a batch file to delete a system directory, hidden for a reason, that's only going to be recreated each and everytime you press the "DEL" key.
