Can anyone help me diagnose why removing a directory would be so slow on my Mac?
$ du -hs mydir/ 606M mydir/ $ find mydir/ -type f -print | wc -l 12720 $ date Tue Sep 10 10:59:27 PDT 2013 $ rm -Rf mydir $ date Tue Sep 10 11:01:44 PDT 2013
This is my local machine, which is a pretty beefy Mac Pro with OS X 10.8. The directory has a lot of files and is pretty big, but over two minutes to delete it? Would this be expected?
Is there anyway I can figure out what, if anything, is making this process slow?
Thanks in advance!
