Every now and then I need to delete a folder containing something like 500k files from an NTFS volume. I do this with Windows Explorer.
Since NTFS journals all the service data changes each deletion is carried out serially and so the whole 500k files deletion takes ages. I remember when I did the same in FAT32 it ran uncomparably faster.
Is there any way to speed up deletion of large number of files on NTFS volumes?
