My impression is that a subfolder of the Temporary Internet Folder has become really, really bloated. (Hard for me to say how bloated; the usual user-level tools for calculating disk usage don't stop with an answer in a reasonable amount of time.)

I've gone into the folder in a cmd window and typed

del *.*

but that seems to take forever, too. (Meaning, hours.) I'm pretty sure it's actually deleting things, because I haven't gotten any permissions errors, and free disk space is increasing.

Is there a way to delete all the files more quickly?

    If it's a directory just use rd /s. – Karan Jul 16 '13 at 1:17
  • You might want to use CCleaner to have this task done quickly for you. – Michael S. Apr 23 '17 at 16:02
