Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-3474) Need an option -rm and -rmr to *not* move to Trash, but actually delete

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3474?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12601364#action_12601364

Owen O'Malley commented on HADOOP-3474:

In such situations, I use:

hadoop fs -rmr foo bar .Trash

> By default, when Trash is enabled, -rm and -rmr just move files/directories to .Trash,
which are actually deleted after some time set in the config.
> When DFS gets full, we need to quickly create space on it by deleting files, so it will
be good to have a --force option to both -rm and -rmr, so that files are actually deleted
and not moved.
