I have a batch file that copy all the files from src place to dest place.

I used xcopy command.

Now I want to make sure all of my file copy correctly and delete all the files in src folder, do you have any idea?

I dont know is there any command for delete the folder with all the files and folder inside it?

please advise me....

my source folder has below structure

> root | 
>         [sub folder1]
>         |
>         filex.s
>         filei.z 
>         [sub folder2]
>         |
>         filep.a
>         fileq.q
>         [sub folder3]
>         |
>         filex.s
>         filei.z
>         filsi.w 
> file1.xx

You could consider using the MOVE command instead of XCOPY – adam Jan 12 '11 at 5:09
xcopy much more reliable... – rima Jan 13 '11 at 11:17

del /s would delete from subdirectories. fc would compare two files.

dir/s/b /a-d > list.bat would dump all file names to a text file.

You could use Notepad++'s Macros to mass edit the text file to FC each file.

You could use a batch file to do a sort of for/each over the files doing the same thing.

del /s do not delete the folders for folders what should I do? del just delete all files, I want remove folder also...for comparison do u have any code? – rima Jan 12 '11 at 6:04
RD /s /q is much more better :) – rima Jan 12 '11 at 6:32
