okay beginner here who needs help


What is the command for deleting all the files that have the number 1 in the name from the DOS directory?

Need help please....thanks.


  • You probably have a solution by now but for anybody who comes across this page in a search, the answer is quite simple:

    del *1*.*
    (In your example: del C:1161_DataFilesDOS*1*.*)

    will delete any files with a 1 in the name, to delete folders too, you would simply need:

    del *1*

    For more on DOS commands this site is pretty good:


    Do or do not, there is no try. |
