Remove the contents of path.
Remove the files in path. Unlike
purge it obeys include/exclude
filters so can be used to selectively delete files.
rclone delete only deletes objects but leaves the directory structure
alone. If you want to delete a directory and all of its contents use
If you supply the --rmdirs flag, it will remove all empty directories along with it.
Eg delete all files bigger than 100MBytes
Check what would be deleted first (use either)
rclone --min-size 100M lsl remote:path rclone --dry-run --min-size 100M delete remote:path
rclone --min-size 100M delete remote:path
That reads "delete everything with a minimum size of 100 MB", hence delete all files bigger than 100MBytes.
Important: Since this can cause data loss, test first with the
--dry-run or the
rclone delete remote:path [flags]
-h, --help help for delete --rmdirs rmdirs removes empty directories but leaves root intact
