Subject:   deleting large numbers of files
Date:   2003-05-02 16:32:48

I somehow managed to DL 266,561 files that are all zero K in size and end in .mov. This was the result using a bulk downloading program.


I am wondering if I can delete a range of files using rm.


ex: rm 0.mov-99999.mov
or something?


Finder freezes if I try and open the folder containing the 266,000 files, so I can not drag them to the trash.


Thanks
