Hello,

The sdelete utility has an option, "-q", which is not documented.
What does it do?

Thanks!

    Hi @JDB ,

    the option -q is for "quiet". I am not 100% sure if all outputs are suppressed or only errors.
    At least that was the description for q in older versions of sdelete if you used the help of sdelete.
