    I've come to realize there's a lot of junk in my server. My inventory plugin has 40k+ files each of 1kb or less stored. I want to also wipe my whole server. I'd like to know how I can *quickly* delete everything. I can use Filezilla and do it via FTP yes. But it takes forever for it to delete the files. It take at least more or less than one second to delete one file, individually.

    There's not really a quick way to delete that many files at the moment.

    The current recommended method is to:
    1. Rename the folder with the files to something else (so the files are no longer in the way -e.g. "Deleting".
    2. Delete the folder in FileZilla, And leave it running in the background overnight.
