hi,

I have been playing with windows screen saver

I have created an folder within the File Server to show pictures as a screen saver

I have 5 pictures I would like to show

These are copied to the client machine from GPO

GPO Setting
Source Files \\fileserver\ScreenSaver\*.*
Destination Folder c:\windows\ScreenSaver
Suppress errors on individual File actions

Read Only  - Disabled
Hidden  - Disabled
Archive - disabled

Stop processing items on this extension if an error occurs on this item - No
Remove this item when it is no longer applied - No
Apply once and do not reapply - No

This works a treat but  When I delete a picture from the file server, The client machine is still picking up the old picture. Do I need to add an gpo to delete the client machine folder c:\windows\screensaver\*.* then re publish the pictures ?

regards,
Comment
