you only the files that are deleted, not the ones it could not find.

Displays a list of files and subdirectories in a directory.

DIR [drive:][path][filename] [/A[[:]attributes]] [/B] [/C] [/D] [/L] [/N]

              S  System files               -  Prefix meaning not
 /B          Uses bare format (no heading information or summary).
 /C          Display the thousand separator in file sizes.  This is the
             default.  Use /-C to disable display of separator.

 /N          New long list format where filenames are on the far right.
 /O          List by files in sorted order.

             W  Last Written
 /W          Uses wide list format.
 /X          This displays the short names generated for non-8dot3 file
             names.  The format is that of /N with the short name inserted
             before the long name. If no short name is present, blanks are
             displayed in its place.
 /4          Displays four-digit years

Switches may be preset in the DIRCMD environment variable.  Override
preset switches by prefixing any switch with - (hyphen)--for example, /-W.
