Do i need a batch file or is there a program that i can use that will delete folders (of my choice) on a network
A massive amount of disk space is taken up with about 1500 users on the network
The trouble is that all the users have folders called: cookies, history, application data, desktop etc, etc
Now, i have stopped these folders from being created now in AD (2000) but, the folders still remain from before
How can i mass remove/delete these folders now?

many thanks in advance

Ian

Must for sure you will need a Batch File :)

No way around, at least, that I know of . . .

Using File Explorer may take some time, but it works.

Well, they problaby have a login script (which is probably a batch file) which you could modify to do the deleting automatically when they login.

Let them do the work.

A script which will Auto run when logon to their computer will do the trick.
