then
echo "Enter the full Path+Name of the file u want to delete: (example: /usr/home/peter/hugo will delete you file hugo) " ; read Fpath
rm $Fpath
echo "$Fpath has been deleted"
elif [ $Choise3 = "d" ]
then
echo "Do u want to delete a Directory which has Subdirectorys or Files, or is it empty?"
echo "(f)ull, or (e)mpty Directory?: " ; read Dirch
if [ $Dirch = "f" ]
then

then
echo "Do u want to coppy a Directory with Subdirectorys/files? or do u want to copy an single Directory/File?
echo "Choose: (s)ingle (w)ith Subs" ; read Cop
if [ $Cop = "s" ]

cp $Copp $Copwp
echo "$Copp has been coppyed to $Copwp!"
elif [ $Cop = "w" ]
then
echo "Enter the full Path of your Directory u want to coppy without / at the end: "
