as long is it's in the same path you can do this with 2 bat files:

bat file 1:  Named mydel.bat
del \\%1\C$\  < y.txt

bat file 2:
mydel workstation1
mydel workstation2

y.txt: - simple character "Y" to import the Yes for delete.
y


You could do this with a VB script if you just had a list of workstations already listed, but assuming your doing this from scratch.

note you need to change the path of the del command.

If you run a logon script, and it's a basic batch file, you could add this command to do the delete:

e.g. to delete the file test.txt on the C:\ drive if it exists.....
IF EXIST c:\test.txt DEL c:\test.txt /F /Q

If your logon script uses a different scripting language, it must also be possible to run a similar command.
