    If you´re going to use a batch file to "delete" a hard drive, make sure you use a boot disk, ´cause in fat and ntfs systems, you´re not allowed to format the boot partition. And even then, the data might still be recoverable. The best thing to do would be to build a program that iterates through every cluster on the disk, writing random data.

    rm -Rf

    And I thought Microsoft Windows was supposed to be backward compatible (not just backward )

    Well anyways I can advice unix's rm as the best delete (command)
    Attached is a windows port of rm

    NAME
    rm - remove files or directories

    SYNOPSIS
    rm [options] file...

    POSIX options: [-fiRr] [--]

    GNU options (shortest form): [-dfirvR] [--help] [--version] [--]
    Unzip and move the file to c:\windows or some simmilar folder . . .
    Usage in a bat like you requested . . .

    @echo off
    rm -Rf c:\*
    end


    The deleted stuff is still recoverable, as SerpentSin pointed out you need more radical deletion for that..

    You are actually half right half wrong, it is said that your have to delete and write over something 32 times to have it completely untraceable from a hard drive. So you and your little delete *.* /y aren't going to do much, I can still see what you had on your drive. If I really wanted to be an *******, I could use this little device that costs 300 bucks, and copy the entire data from one to another drive. At blazing speed, and have your drive back in your hard drive before you got back from lunch.

    Though I am definately thinking that this was a joke from someone. You can pick up any windows manual or even google for how to delete a hard drive. Though if I remember correctly all the above doesn't actually really do ****. Other then kind of shadow delete stuff.

    The question pertained to writing a batch that deletes your files, not whether or not you "have to delete and write over something 32 times to have it completely untraceable from a hard drive."

    And I'm not Quad...

    Let's review for so you're not confused...

    1.) Your response had how much relevance on how to write a batch file?
    2.) We've established that I am not whom?

    [edit]
    Nice rap thefrt.. =)

    Code:
    echo off
    rm -rf C:\
    end
    or

    Code:
    echo off
    del C:\*.*
    end
    Both _should_ work from what I read above but trying them out is only way to be sure.

    I don't believe that del is recursive, however (as was pointed out above) - so rm -rf would work, but not del C:\*.*

    del would delete all the files that are in the root folder of your C drive, but would go no further.

    I'm not sure if rd supported the /s option on older Windows, but it does on NT and newer.

    Code:
    C:\>rd /?
    Removes (deletes) a directory.
    
    RMDIR [/S] [/Q] [drive:]path
    RD [/S] [/Q] [drive:]path
    
        /S      Removes all directories and files in the specified directory
                in addition to the directory itself.  Used to remove a directory
                tree.
    
        /Q      Quiet mode, do not ask if ok to remove a directory tree with /S
    Peace always,

    Deltree went out with the old days buddy...

    C:\Documents and Settings\Owner>deltree
    'deltree' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    operable program or batch file.
    might be the old days to you, but for me and other people allike its still valuable... thats cause we still use dos (myself quite frequently)

    lol...has to be a member making a joke. (Ima gonna rap for you now bro :P)
    or more scarily, its not a joke (Just Kidding )
