Cyberduck Mountain Duck CLI

#79 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Delete multiple files more efficiently

When deleting a directory that contains many files, cyberduck appears to go inside the directory and delete each file individually. This can take many minutes depending on the number of files. It should be possible to delete the entire directory with one command. For example, I can ssh into my server and type the folowing command to instantly delete a directory.

rm -rf directoryname

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

This is not possible due to limitations in the SFTP and FTP protocols.
