create a file computers.txt with a list of computers and then run


C:\tools>FOR /F "delims=~" %f in (computers.txt) DO del \\"%f"\c$\Recycler\*.* /
q /s

may have to remove the quotes, if you want this in a batch file need to change %f to %%F

C:\tools>FOR /F "delims=~" %f in (computers.txt) DO del \\%f\c$\Recycler\*.* /q
/s

For a single machine use something like this

del \\Machine Name\c$\Recycler\*.* /q /s

Sorry not sure of a popup
