Group Policy Preferences to delete contents of My Documents

Hi, I am trying to create a GP using GP Preferences to delete the contents of a particular user's My Documents folder on an ongoing basis.

I have tried the File replace and File detele options but neither seem to work.
Can anyone see what I am doing wrong? I ran a gpresult and the GP is applying correctly to the user, so I dont think its a permission issue.

Thanks

Why don't you setup a scheduled script on the users workstation or setup to delete on login.

Example:

 del /f /y C:\documents and settings\user\Mydocuments\

I got the group policy working with the exact same settings as before.

What I had missed was installing the Group Policy Preference Extensions add on to the XP client to be able to interpret the new extensions in GP.

The kb for the XP update is KB943729
I remembered that KB943729 is a prerequisite for extensions from Derek Melber  (Group Policy MVP) at a conference a while ago. Thank you Derek!
