RMDA FTP command

Updated May 4, 2017


This article provides information on Remove Directory & Contents (RMDA) FTP command.

Removes the specified directory and all its file contents and subdirectories on the server.


All Serv-U versions


The RMDA command allows clients to perform a recursive delete operation a directory using a single command. Typically deleting a directory with many subdirectories and files will force the user to wait for the client to issue DELE and RMD commands to each file and directory, preventing the user from doing any work until the operations are completed. Issuing the RMDA command unloads that operation to the server, allowing the client to continue working unhindered.
