View Full Version : autoexec.bat: DEL C:\folder\sub\*.*

How do I get WinME to delete the contents of folders (temp/recent) on startup?
I thought putting DEL C:\folder\sub\*.* in the autoexec.bat file would do it, but it doesn't.
I saw it done before, but can't remember how...
If you have the appropriate files just place a shortcut to them in the startup folder
If you haven't got them let me know and I'll post them here

I don't really need to access them, for security I'd like them to be deleted automaticly on startup... like before windows actually loads.
programs in the startup folder are started as windows start which basically is the same.

I practice this religiously. Alway clear my recent files off before closing down my pc.

You have the wrong text in your autoexec.bat:
The "/y" stops the prompt asking you if you're sure you want to delete it. It deletes before Windows loads.
You could also do:
del c:\windows\recent\*.lnk to delete recent files
Hope this helps! :D
Wow, it's been a long time since I've been here..
