Something I made a couple of weeks ago and thought I'd share to brag a bit and to get some feedback. It's a multi-threaded folder removal utility. Similar in function to rmdir /s, but uses all CPU cores to scan and delete folder contents. Also with a better progress reporting, but that's subjective. Homepage is here - https://iobureau.com/byenow The program talks to the kernel directly when scanning, so each individual scan is marginally faster. It also does that using a larger buffer, so fewer kernel calls are needed to traverse larger folders. Local folder deletes are usually faster that "rmdir /s", depending on the file system cache state, device type, machine load, etc. The best speed up I saw was a bit over 2 times deleting a copy of Windows folder from an NVMe drive. Remote folder deletes are virtually always faster. This is because using multiple threads keeps the request pipeline filled, countering the effects of round-trip latency, so the remote end doesn't get a chance to idle and it's always busy doing something. Freeware. Both 32- and 64-bit versions. Small in size. The source is public, but it uses several Win32 API wrapper libraries that aren't included in the release. Have a look, let me know what you think?
