OK - I may be asking for too much here but...

I have a directory tree similar to this:
C:\foo\user1
C:\foo\user2
C:\foo\user3

I need to purge all the files and folders WITHIN the each user folder. I have a LOT of users so hard coding the full path won't work. Any ideas?

Directory.Delete(PAth, True) http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/fxeahc5f.aspx

will delete the directory and all subdirectories .. just call it for each of your paths that you want to delete.

To get the user folders just use Directory.GetDirectories http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/c1sez4sc.aspx it also supports a search pattern i.e. user* http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/6ff71z1w.aspx

Cheers,

Greg
