I have  highly fragmented LARGE (some over 100 MEG) files on my PC.  I used the explorer to delete them then went to the recycle bin to delete them from there.  It takes FOREVER.

What might be the ramifications/differences in using the "KILL" command vs the delete - recycle bin delete?

I put this question here rather than the OS system area - maybe I should put the question there also?
