I have found a MS DOS command and would like to know further what it would do if i typed it into MS DOS.
The Command is 'ERASE'. I know it will erase the info on the hard disk drive but... will it keep the Operating System. I want to erase all the files on the Hard Disk (including user restrictions) but keep the operating system.
rather than using dos commands you would be safer deleting the files from within windows itself, if all you wish to do is create more space. Although again CAUTION must be advised when deleting any files you are unsure of. (even the ones you are sure of).
there are some clean up utilities available which may assist.
There are other options ... eg adding another hard drive (unless its a laptop) or even getting hold of a cheap Cd drive and installing it.
