Force Delete = Torture

Hi All,

ForceDelete on assets in UE4 is torture to wait for, so slow… I know it has been mentioned a few times but is there any way of speeding this up?


  • Close related open item windows.
  • Delete folders such as /Map or folders which are not used via Explorer.
  • Use replacement, requires to know what files your action affects.
  • If FD, delete one item at a time.

I hope that basic file operations will be improved in future patches.

Thanks for the tips, will give it a whirl

I sit and wait for over 1 hour to delete several folders …
The computer does not load, i use ssd m.2, UE4 4.24
