Vb script help! To delete folders and files

Vb script help! To delete folders and files

Vb script help! To delete folders and files

(OP)
I need a vb script to delete files and folders when a user logs in on a network.

The location is is c:\users\%username%\mywork\

I need to delete all the files and folders in the my work folder which are older than 1 day, the script must use the %username% because it needs to run for all users on a network.

Any help would be great.

Thanks

RE: Vb script help! To delete folders and files

I wrote a script a long time ago that does this for Exchange bad mail queues. You can easily modify that and use it as a login script.

I hope that helps.
