Help Auto Deleting Directories

  squadie 18:11 06 Feb 2005

I would like to be able to delete a folder from my hard drive and all the folders/files it contains Automatically

I teach a IS Application and install it on students machines each time I run the course

I deally I would like to write something like a batch file which would kill the programs directories once I have finished the Course

Any Ideas

If it is a prgram that you are installing, then simply deleting the program folder is not a good idea. Programs often install files in the system folders and entries in the registry. At the least, these will take up unnecessary space and at worst can delay or prevent the system booting.

It is much better practice to uninstall the program, which usually removes all these extra entries.

The programme does create the file structure but during the course we add things to it. So when the programme is uninstalled it doesn,t take away the structure.

I know it is safe to delete this folder as I do it every time a course finishes
