Delete (Command Line)

Visual Studio 2005

Removes files and projects from the database, and marks them as deleted. For definitions of the command options, see Command Options in this Help system.


After deletion, items still exist and can be recovered using the Recover command.

ss Delete <items> [-H] [-I-] [-N] [-O] [-S] [-Y] [-?]

You must have the Add/Rename/Delete project right to use this command.

After you have deleted a file from a project, you cannot delete another file with the same name from the same project. If you delete file Trash.c from a project, then add a new file called Trash.c to the project, that is all right. However, trying to delete Trash.c again is not allowed.

Deletes the file Test.c from the project $/PRJ:

ss Delete $/PRJ/TEST.C

Deletes the project $/PRJ:

ss Delete $/PRJ

Deletes all the files in the current project:

ss Delete *.*
