Hi,

You might want to look at this:
http://www.computing.net/answers/programming/vbscript-to-delete-all-subfolders/14650.html

Easiest way would be to create a script to remove the top level folder and 
everything inside, and then recreate the top level folder.

i.e.

@echo off
rmdir /s /q somedir
mkdir somedir

Subject: [THIN] OT - Assistance with script to delete folders

Hi

Im trying to create a script that runs on server startup that deletes all 
files/folders in a specific folder but without deleting the top level folder

C:\TEST
        FOLDER1
        FOLDER2
        etc

I tried using rmdir c:\Test\ /s /q but this deletes the test folder.  I need to 
delete all subfolders except c:\test.  Any ideas on how I can do this?? Citrix 
Server is running on Windows 2003

Thanks
