I work at a university, where we have 600+ users, 60 Windows XP Pro and a Windows Server 2003.
The thing is that any user logs onto any computer at any time, so after a few days I have several (up to 100) user profiles under c:documents and settings(username).
Sometimes they store huge amounts of data, and I end up with filled HDs, even though all the computers have 80 GB drives.
All the user names are 5 and 6 digit numbers. For example, I get c:documents and settings123456.
Is there any way to automate the deletion of those profiles instead of doing it manually?
I thought of running a .bat file that has something like:
deltree c:documents and settings1*
deltree c:documents and settings2*
deltree c:documents and settings3*
…and so on up to number 9.
But I have to run that on every computer “manually”, and files would be deleted instead of going to the recycle bin, which would be a plus.
I haven’t tried the .bat idea… but I guess it should work.
