Deleting Data from a User Profile

  recap 09:31 28 Jul 2006

Hi all,

I have been asked by a community organization if it is possible to delete cookies/pictures/music files and the contents of My Documents from a users profile. This is with out having to log in as a user and deleting from there.

I have looked at Group Policies but cannot find an option for this.

My questions are:

a) is there a Group Policy option?

b) would a script have to be written for this?

The reason for this is that their server W2003 has only a small HD and they have over 400 users.

There is a few ways...

Log-off script, or shutdown script.. that runs to delete temp files in the user dir by using the %username% variable.

Thanks for that Gaz 25.

I will give them a go, it will save a lot of time consuming work.
