Thanks for the delete utility. I just installed it on my machine. I also added a line to my autoexec to “alias” the standard Windows95 del command.
doskey del=c:\utility\delete $1 $2 $3 $4 $5 $6 $7 $8 $9
Hope you like the suggestion.

Thanks – very intelligent solution, don’t know why all the clever and well-payed people didn’t come across to make “del” so usable.
I am very surprised that you are from India – this is the first program from India I have ever seen.

I really enjoy your Delete program, have you considered doing a deltree replacement?

Nice utility. I will be passing it to my friends.
By the way, I live outside of Syracuse, New York, USA and found the utility at PC Worlds’ Web site.

Delete 97 was mentioned on the Internet Newsgroup for Windows 95. Once again, thanks. When I first switched to Windows 95 I was unaware that deleting from DOS would kill the files altogether; I had thought they’d go to the recycle bin (as indeed they should have).
I lost some data at that time, and am now delighted to be able to correct this source of error.

First off, I love your Delete97 tool! I am trying to get into the habit of using Delete97 all the time to erase files, but have ran into one small glitch.
Currently, I am using it with a DOSKEY alias so that when I type ‘Erase’ or ‘Del ‘ on the command line, it runs Delete97.exe for me instead. The problem I run i nto, is that if I try to delete a file off a LAN drive, Delete97 can’t do it for me, giving an error that ‘Remote drives are not supported’.
Once again: Great tool. Thanks.

I have downloaded your program Delete 97. In my opinion, it is really great! I have one suggestion to improve the program: you can add the following doskey commands to the autoexec.bat:
DOSKEY DEL=DELETE $*
If you add this, it cannot happen that you type DEL instead of DELETE and delete the files irreversibly. Maybe you could mention this in your readme file.

I just recently started using your delete program and really like it. I find it difficult to believe that Microsoft didn’t do this already.

Hi!! I downloaded Delete97 last night and tried it out on two WIN95 machines… it is indeed much faster, and I like the new options that you added for “ignore attributes” and multiple filespecs; it is VERY nice!!!
Thank you for the excellent improvements that you’ve made in this really cool program!!
