Everything can be scripted to achieve whatever you want. This is the power 
of scripting. From the vbscript you can use icacls.exe to change folder

I cannot delete the top level as the top folder has specific rights which 
are not inherited..  Would be good if I can delete everything except the 
top folder.  Otherwise I would need to script the ACL modifications also. 
Users group needs modify access to the top folder..  Can this be scripted

You might want to look at this:
Easiest way would be to create a script to remove the top level folder and 
everything inside, and then recreate the top level folder.
@echo off
rmdir /s /q somedir
mkdir somedir

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

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 


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
