Having been a Windows user for a while, I have just recently began to dabble with running commands in cmd, mostly for basic image format conversion, and batch processing of raw files using Rawtherapee-cli for raw video.
Anyway, after I transcode the tiff sequences from Rawtherapee-cli to 10 bit video clips for video editing, I am left with all these extra tiff files. Usually, I do a search for tiff, and delete in the windows file browser gui, but this time I felt more adventurous and daring, so I deleted all the tiff files in my external hard drive (G:) currently dedicated only to this video project, with one command.
Quite a bold move, and afterwards, I just had just cleared out about 480 GB of intermediary files, and I just had to type a more humorous command,
echo Whew Lad!
Edit: removed the actual command from the post as this is quite a “Do Not Try at Home” kind of deal.
