Paste the script below into a text file with a .cmd extension.  Customize the value of the "folder" variable with the location of the BatchFiles folder.

Running the script will echo commands to run and delete every .bat file in that folder.  Once you have tested it successfully, remove the "echo" from lines 7 and 8.


@echo off
setlocal
 
set folder=C:\BatchFiles
 
for /F "tokens=*" %%G in ('dir "%folder%\*.bat" /B') do (
 echo call "%folder%\%%G"
 echo del "%folder%\%%G"
)
 
pause

The original batch files look like this


REM Activant
REM A fax failed to be sent out. This file has been created 
REM to resend the fax. Double click this file to resend the fax. 
REM 
vfx -H KMC.electricalsalesinc.local -B \\Sqlserver\jfsrvr\data\OR151704.rcp
REM Check to see if an error has occurred before continuing.

Try this to bypass the pauses.


@echo off
setlocal
 
set folder=C:\BatchFiles
 
for /F "tokens=*" %%G in ('dir "%folder%\*.bat" /B') do (
 echo. | "%folder%\%%G"
 echo del "%folder%\%%G"
)
 
pause

I dunno.  You'll have to review the batch script that returned the error.

Personally I don't much fancy troubleshooting a thousand of the things.
