Do you really need a batch file?  If not then you can run this command from the command prompt.  Work really well.

@DEL /S /Q /F "\\test\test\test\*.*"

The above command will delete all files in that test folder.  It won't pop up to ask you to confirm.

@echo off
del /Q /S /F "\\testing\testing\testing\*.*"
exit

save it as a batch file ... will do the job too.
