Computer Speed: FTP vs. Command Line vs. Formula 1 Race Car

Two directories. Identical except for their name. One will be deleted using FTP. The other will be deleted using the linunix delete command from the command line. Each of the directories to be deleted contains 15,803 files, using 490M of disk.

On a directory of this size, it might be possible to notice a difference in how long the process runs. There also is a chance of a measurable difference in the load the process puts on the local PC where the delete command are issued.

The directories are deleteDemo and deleteDemoClone.
