Formatting network drives by raistlin

I was wondering whether there is a way of rapidly "formatting" a network drive or alternatively instand deletion of all the files on it please?

I know that in principle it can't be done because it isn't a true drive, rather a share of a NAS storage, but just recenly it has taken me four days to delete files from a network drive to get it back to zero and I have another to do with nearly twice as much data on it.

Any ideas please?

Depends on the nas, I have a DLINK and if I go through the web browser I can delete entire shares and their contents. If you don't want any data on it you might be best whipping the drive out, wiping it and putting it back in the nas and setting up from scratch.

I suppose deleting a share and reconstructing it would be a rapid way to sort things out Jamie :)
