vbs move specific folders to specific locations
Posted on 2011-09-12
Thanks to some adml files, many of our users now have double desktop and and documents folders.
The policy problem is now fixed, but all the double folders created by the policy is still there, making it very hard for our users to understand where to put their files.
I need an automatic way to enumerate all files and folders in the "wrong" desktop and documents folders and move them to the right place and then delete the wrong desktop and documents folders, for every user.
The setup is as follows.
In "c:\private" share all the users folders are located.
Under these user folders they have a desktop and documents folder and the danish version of those called skrivebord and dokumenter.
What I´d like is a script that moves for example.:
and then moves on to the next userfolder like "c:\private\user2" and do the same until everything is back in the right location.
Not all users have these double folders, only users that were logged on while the policy was still broken, so there has to be some kind of if exist in the script I guess.
It would be complete disaster if anything went wrong in this script, so I really hope someone can help me out here.
I have enough understanding of vbs to read a script and see what it does and edit existing scripts to do something similar, but I havent been able to find something that would be easily modified.
Thanks in advance;)
