Delete a File After It Is Processed with Command Lines

I'm using a single source instance to work with numerous source files. After data is added to the destination, I need to remove the source file from that directory, which is what I want to accomplish. How can this be done?

Try a Post-Session Success Command, such as xargs -i rm -f File list.txt, if you wish to remove the files listed in the file list file. You can use a Post-Session Success Command like rm -f File list.txt to directly remove the file list file. Add both instructions, in the specified sequence, to a Post-Session Success Command if you wish to remove both the file list file and the files it contains. On the Post-Session Success Command's Properties tab, be sure to check the "Fail task if any command fails" property. We'll presume that you can solve any pathing problems.

If you want to delete a file in use on Windows, the Command Prompt is a good choice. How to use CMD to delete files? Launch CMD on your computer as an administrator, and type in DEL /F file name (remember to replace "file name" with the files you want to delete). The files you deleted with the command lines we mentioned will not move to Recycle bin.

There is an option for you to deal with the files you deleted by mistake. You can try this file recovery program on your computer – EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard:

1. Open EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard on your PC, then choose the partition or disk containing the deleted files. To search for deleted files, click "Scan" first.

2. After the scanning is complete, choose the deleted files you wish to recover. You may select the filter to see the file types you wish to see. The quickest approach to find the desired file is to enter the name of the file in the "Search files or folders" box.

3. You can view the recovered files in advance. Select the files you wish to recover, and then click "Recover" to put them elsewhere rather than on the drive where the data was previously lost.

Use EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard to recover deleted or lost files easily and quickly.
