I got the the following code from stack overflow and it works fine.
$TargetFolder = “Pathofyourfolder”
$Files = Get-ChildItem $TargetFolder -Exclude (gc List.txt) -Recurse
foreach ($File in $Files)
write-host “Deleting File $File” -foregroundcolor “Red”;
Remove-Item $File | out-null
Now I want to delete the files with file names on the list. I tried some variations of the above such as replacing Exclude with Include but without success. Can anyone help please?
$targetFolder = "D:\TEST_123"
$fileList = "D:\DeleteList.txt"
Get-ChildItem -Path "$targetFolder\*" -Recurse -Include @(Get-Content $fileList) | Remove-Item -Verbose
-Includeto work you should specify
\*at the end of a folder name and filename with extension in your deletion list. The code above works for me, deleting only specified files in folder and all of its subfolders.
I also used
-Verbose instead of
