Actually, there are just two choices left to delete the entire structure.

1. On the same device, clone the structure, then move all of the share's top-level objects to that replica. The duplicate should then be deleted. These movements will be rapid as long as the device only performs an atomic operation on the "moved" object while performing a "move". Then you can use the cmd /c rd /s/q command to move massive files structure on Windows Server 2012 quickly.

2. If you still think it is too slow to delete your 3TB files, you can try to find some professional delete tools to help you erase the data from these folders.

Avoid attempting to do this through the Explorer GUI at all costs0 since Explorer will try to compile a comprehensive list of files to remove before beginning the removals. We can assure you that this is never going to be a quick operation since we have erased multi-terabyte file structures with millions of tiny files.

What can you do if you accidentally delete files on Windows Server 2012? It is easy to recover data from Windows Server 2016 or 2012, and you will need a tool called EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard.
