Remove the files in 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 files but leaves the directory structure
alone. If you want to delete a directory and all of its contents use
the purge command.
For example, to delete all files bigger than 100 MiB, you may first want to check what would be deleted (use either):
rclone --min-size 100M lsl remote:path rclone --dry-run --min-size 100M delete remote:path
Then proceed with the actual delete:
rclone --min-size 100M delete remote:path
That reads "delete everything with a minimum size of 100 MiB", hence delete all files bigger than 100 MiB.
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
Important flags useful for most commands.
-n, --dry-run Do a trial run with no permanent changes -i, --interactive Enable interactive mode -v, --verbose count Print lots more stuff (repeat for more)
