Hello,

I am trying to write a batch file that will search a particular directory with sub-folders that have both .tif and .pdf's in them. My goal is to be able to run this script that can search a specific directory's sub-folders for all of the .tif files and delete them. Is this possible using a batch file script? Since all of the sub-folders are named differently I am unsure how to account for those variables.

Thanks to all in advance,

Whah
