Ever tried to delete a large directory structure from a NetWare server using Windows Explorer? Its slow, it stops and prompts time and time again, and normally errors out before you’re done. If you’ve been through this, you need Nuke.
Nuke is a NetWare NLM that deletes directory trees, ignores Read-Only, Delete Inhibit, Hidden and System flags, and as it runs from the server – its fast.
load nuke <path>
load nuke VOL1:data\users
where <path> is the top level directory you want to delete – everything in that dir and below will be deleted. In the example, the data\users directory and below will be deleted. If the volume is not specified, it will be assumed to be sys:
To wipe a complete volume do: load nuke volname:
And yes: “load nuke sys:” will wipe (almost) the entire sys volume …. use carefully! No liability accepted.
