Files not deleting from computer after deleting them in command prompt


I created a new folder and subfolder in command prompt and then tried to delete it from command prompt using the del c:\Username\myusername\test. When I go to see if the file is deleted it is still there


What tutorial are you following? What command prompt are you using? (Windows cmd, Linux terminal, etc?)


To remove the folder with all its contents(including all interior folders):
rm -rf /path/to/directory.

To remove all the contents of the folder(including all interior folders) but not the folder itself:
rm -rf /path/to/directory/*


Looks like you are using windows:

if its a directory/folder use the rmdir keyword instead of del. If the directory is not empty you may need to pass it parameters, such as:

rmdir /S C:\pathToDirect\
