Remove-DfsnFolder

Last Updated: 3/26/2017

SYNOPSIS

Removes a DFS namespace folder.

SYNTAX

Remove-DfsnFolder [-Path] <String> [-Force] [-CimSession <CimSession[]>] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>] [-AsJob]
 [-WhatIf] [-Confirm] [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Remove-DfsnFolder cmdlet removes a Distributed File System (DFS) namespace folder. When you remove a folder, this cmdlet deletes all the folder targets for the folder. This cmdlet does not delete the folders specified by DFS namespace targets or the files in those folders.

If you remove the last folder within a parent directory, the cmdlet removes the parent folder as well, unless it is the DFS namespace root. To remove a DFS namespace root, use the Remove-DfsnRoot cmdlet.

For more information about DFS namespaces, see Overview of DFS Namespaces on TechNet.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Remove a DFS namespace folder

PS C:\> Remove-DfsnFolder -Path "\\Contoso\AccountingResources\LegacySoftware"

This command removes the DFS namespace folder \\Contoso\AccountingResources\LegacySoftware.

PARAMETERS

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete.

The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet.

For more information about Windows PowerShell background jobs, see about_Jobs.
