Is there any way to delete a folder and its sub folders silently using Remove-Item ?
so far tried with -force and -confirm:$false but its prompting for confirmation.
what is the code you run?
I have no issues running
Remove-Item -path D:\temp\FolderToRemove -Recurse -Force
Thanks for your time, below is my code
Remove-Item -path D:\inetpub\foldertoremove -force
I am not using -recurse as i want to delete entire thing(sub folders). Am running it on ISE and its prompting for confirmation
please correct me if am wrong
You can test it on a different folderstructure first, but you have to use -recurse to make it remove subdirectories.
If you read the help file for remove-item it will point to a different method in example 4.
Thanks steing, I am good with it
