removing OS9 syst folder this way takes 3 hours!
Authored by: Herve5 on Sep 12, '06 01:49:51PM

Is it normal that the sudo srm -rf command with the system folder takes ages to complete?

I've left my poor mac alone in the dark for almost 2 hours tonight, and the syst folder only has decreased from some 20 Mb (seen from the Finder).

Would a basic authentified drag'ndrop to the bin have taken the same time?
