Performance of rm -rf
Tue Jan 27 23:55:00 GMT 2015
Hello Cygwin community.
Back in November I had to replace my hard disk and re-install. Since
then I've noticed that if I use rm -rf to delete a directory tree, the
performance is significantly slower than before.
For example, deleting a 1.79 Gb directory tree with the DOS rmdir /s
command takes less than 1 minute. The same deletion with the Cygwin rm
-rf command takes 16 minutes.
I've looked in the mailing list archives, but I didn't find anything
I'm running Windows 8.1.
Any thoughts as to where I might look?
