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\
