Comments

For mass deletion of zero files do following

  1. open list_of_zero_files.txt in text editor (notepad is not very good for editing of long list, use wordpad instead or other suitable text editor)

  2. replace all occurrences of slash “/” with backslash “\” (find uses UNIX symbol to separate folders in path, this will replace UNIX syntax to Windows syntax”

  3. replace all occurrences of string “Zero-filled file:” with “del /q” (Windows command to delete file, “/q” switch means without prompt to delete)

  4. rename list_of_zero_files.txt to list_of_zero_files.bat (make sure about BAT extension)
