[Discuss] Deleting Files in a Sorted Directory   [Discuss]

Hello all:

I have someone working on a directory with around 100K files in it.

When he is done working on it, he only wants to keep a few.

I will tag all the files, and untag the files he wishes to keep.

I would like to show him how fast it is to delete the unwanted files.

Which is the fastest sort I should use?

I have always used UNSORTED/ASCENDING because I felt this was the way the File Allocation Table sorted it.

Any ideas? or does the wear and tear even matter?


Rock On!
