DeleteEx method of the CIM_DeviceFile class

The DeleteEx method deletes the logical file (or directory) specified in the object path. This method is an extended version of the Delete method and is inherited from CIM_LogicalFile.

Important  The DMTF (Distributed Management Task Force) CIM (Common Information Model) classes are the parent classes upon which WMI classes are built. WMI currently supports only the CIM 2.x version schemas.
 

This topic uses Managed Object Format (MOF) syntax. For more information about using this method, see Calling a Method.

Syntax


uint32 DeleteEx(
  [out] string REF StopFileName,
  [in]  string     StartFileName
);

Parameters

StopFileName [out]

String that represents the name of the file (or directory) where the method failed. This parameter is null if the method succeeds.

StartFileName [in]

String that represents the child file (or directory) to use as a starting point for this method. Typically, the StartFileName parameter is the StopFileName parameter specifying the file or directory at which an error occurred from the previous method call. If this parameter is null, the operation is performed on the file or directory specified in the ExecMethod call.
