Hi all,

I keep collecting prf*.tmp-files in my profile that's stored on a dfs-share. I
know those are open files that can't be written while synching the profile
according to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/328607.

So far none of them have proven to be any important data, so I figured I could
create a scheduled task to automatically remove them from the central stored

So, I made a batch-script (basically a "del /F /Q prf*.tmp" for a few
particular folders) and ran it and nothing happened... Checked the
file-attribs and noticed the prf-files were marked HRSA, which would explain
why the del-command in my batch-script couldn't delete them. No problem, I
changed my script to include "attrib -R /S prf*.tmp", "attrib -H /S prf*.tmp"
and "attrib -S /S prf*.tmp" and ran the script again. Still nothing...

I can delete them manually via Windows Explorer, but that is not feasible, I
need an automatic way to do this.

Do you guys have any hints ir ideas on how to do this?
