This would be for a batch file:
FOR /D %%p IN ("C:\Temp\*.*") DO rmdir "%%p" /s /q

you can also change "C:\Temp\*.*" to "%tmp%\*.*" if you want to get the appdata temp folder

I use this script, I suggest you open it and understand what it's doing, then test it.

Hi Santasi24.

Does your script work on 8? The path for TIF has changed.
