Description Michael Prokop 2006-12-17 11:54:10 UTC
AFAICS it is not possible to delete directories recursive from withing smbclient.

If a directory named dir1 contains file(s) then 'rmdir dir1' won't work of course (NT_STATUS_DIRECTORY_NOT_EMPTY). I can't find a way to run something like 'rm -rf dir1' from within smbclient. Would be nice to have something like 'recurse' available for rm/rmdir as well so it's possible to delete non-empty directories from within smbclient.

thx && regards,
