DELTREE (short for delete tree) is a command line command in Microsoft operating systems that deletes an entire subdirectory of files. It appeared in MS-DOS 6, and was retained throughout all Windows versions based upon MS-DOS, including Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 98 SE and Windows ME. (For Windows versions before Windows 95, the presence of DELTREE depended on the version of the MS-DOS that was already present on the machine.)

DELTREE isn't present in Windows NT-based operating systems, including Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8. Instead, the RD or RMDIR (remove directory) command removes a subdirectory along with all its files if the /S command-line switch is given, and does so without prompting if the /Q command-line switch is given as well.[1]
