I'm trying to use this script to remove some old profiles but I kept getting this error.

Script error: Error in expression.!
Del $LPath + "\*.*" /c /f /h ;delete files in Folder root


So I changed that line to this.

shell '%ComSpec% /c rd /s /q "$LPath + "\*.*"" >nul 2>nul'

When that runs it delets everything in the current directory.
Here is the output.

NTUSER.DAT as of 5555555
Profile of User = . as of is deleted
NTUSER.DAT as of
Profile of User = . as of is deleted

I need to be able to delete SPECIFIC older profiles with a script(vbs, bat, kix, au3 are all acceptable).
Any suggestions?

Well one would need Admin rights to delete the other profiles.

We can modify / write your script to work but think a better understanding of what it is you're really attempting to do is.

What version of KiXtart are you using?

Are you wanting to do it locally or remotely?

I have several remote machines that people are allowed to use for a week or two at a time, as you can imagine these computers are full of old unused profiles. From time to time I will need to remove the unused profiles to make room for new ones. I don't want a logon script because I don't want the profiles removed until I am sure it's safe to do so.

What I need is a script that sits on my desktop and waits for me to click it. When activated it will find the machines I have defined in the script, find their profile lists, delete all but the profiles but the ones I specify (Admin, All Users...).

Why not at logon, if you delete the profiles older than a certain amount of time? I use a cleanup script at logon, which 'cleans' profiles for a part: we keep 'Local Settings\Application Data' and the ntuser.* files.

We use roaming profiles and Outlook 2003 (ahumm) as a mail client and if we completely remove the profile, Outlook gives an error when a older user (profile dir earlier deleted) logges on. Somehow Outlook needs some files in the 'Local Settings\Application Data' directory.

I think you're getting an error because outlook profiles and xp profiles are kept in different directories.

I can't use a logon script because my users don't have admin priviliges. Even if they did I would have to add each one to the list of "do not deletes" in the script before they logged on. I think it would be eaiser to just wait intil a set of users doesn't need to logon on any more then delete them all at once.

To put it simply I need a script that will:
go to a remote machine that I specify
open a directoy
delete any files in that directory except the ones I specify (all users, admin, my.profile)

Okay, but you did not specify what version of KiXtart you're using.

If I get time I'll try to post something later today that should work with KiXtart 4.52 beta 2 only.

If you can't use KiXtart 4.52 beta 2 then you'll need to code something on your own.

I stumbled across this posted by sealeopard.
I can't get it to work either.

Code:
$maxprofileage=20
$profilelist=$HKLM+'\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList'
$profiles=arrayenumkey($profilelist)

for each $usersid in $profiles
if $usersid<>'' and right($usersid,4)<>'-500'
$username=sidtoname($usersid)
$username=right($username,len($username)-instrrev($username,'\'))

;I added this*********
if $username='my.profile'
exit
endif
;*********************

if $username=''
$username='account unknown: '+$usersid
endif
$profiledir=expandenvironmentvars(readvalue($profilelist+'\'+$usersid,'ProfileImagePath'))
if $profiledir<>''
$userprofiles=dirlist($profiledir+'.*',1)
for each $userprofile in $userprofiles
$profiledate=getfiletime($userprofile+'\ntuser.dat')
$profiledate=left($profiledate,10)
if datemath($profiledate,@DATE)>$maxprofileage
$shellcommand='rd /s /q '+$userprofile
shell '%COMSPEC% /c '+$shellcommand
if $userprofile=$profiledir
$retcode=delkey($profilelist+'\'+$usersid)
endif
endif
next
endif
endif
next

Okay, who is deciding when or how the age of the profile is decided? You want to decide on something like 90 days, 120 days? or are you manually deciding what is old?

Do you need to support NT4 style profiles that are stored typically under C:\WinNT\Profiles

I was just planning to run the script myself every 30 days or so. These will all be XP profiles.

I haven't tested but maybe this is a way to go...

using the dirplus() UDF
Code:
 $files = Dirplus('\\ [i]path[/i] \documents and settings\')
for each $file in $files
do ?'Would you like to delete this profile? y/n>' gets $deleteIt
until $deleteIt
if $deleteIt='y'
del '\\[i]path[/i]\documents and settings\$file'
endif
next




Maybe I'm an idiot but...

Give that code a run and when you get back let us know how it went.

In the mean time I'll continue working on another example.

Okay Matthewst,

Here is some example code WARNING! USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!!

This UDF does not check to verify if the remote machine is running or if you have Admin rights on the system which you must have.
It does not check who is logged on or if anyone is accessing any of the files within the profile.
It simply checks the last write time against the current time and determines how old the NTUSER.DAT file is.

You can set the age to any date you want for removing the profiles.

PARAMETERS
$Days = Number of days before the profile will be considered OLD
$sComputer = The name of the remote computer, if left blank the current machine is used
$Del = Flag to indicate if you want to remove the profile or simply display the profile. A 1 would mean to delete the profile.


 
Again - Test and Use at your own risk
I highly recommend using a Virtual machine or other Test machine first to verify this code operates as expected.

I have done minimal testing and it appears to work, but due to the nature of this
type of code any errors could be quite dangerous.

    Example output RemoveOldProfiles(90) on local machine
     
  • Administrator : 91 days old.
  • Would remove profile: C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator
  • BillW : 104 days old.

NTDOC, your code seems to work correctly.

I wrote something very similar about 6 months ago without any delete, just to log information about older profiles.

The RemoveOldProfiles function can be completed with other scans.
For example, with SMS 2, some logs files should be deleted for the user associated to the profile dir :
with the profile dir, i find the SID which the registry key.
then, i convert the SID to the account name
finally, i look for the SMS complete log files concerning this user.

OK Doc Sorry, I was just giving a direction he could go without having to base the deletion on a time frame

This will display each existing profile in documents and settings and offer you the choice to delete it or not. you would have to change the parameters of the UDF to the url for a remote system and you would have to have admin permissions on that system (maybe you would want to map a drive to the c:\docs and settings' directory of that system).

Here's the Working code. I tested it locally with a test profile.

Code:
 break on

Dim $SO
dim $files
dim $file
dim $deleteIt

$SO=SetOption('Explicit','On')
$SO=SetOption('NoVarsInStrings','On')
$SO=SetOption('NoMacrosInStrings','On')


Function DirPlus($path,optional $Options, optional $f, optional $sfflag)
If not vartype($f) DIM $f EndIf
If not vartype($sfflag) DIM $sfflag EndIf

DIM $file, $i, $temp, $item, $ex1, $mask,$mask1,$maskArray,$maskarray1,
$ex2, $code, $CodeWeight, $targetWeight, $weight, $masktrue
DIM $tarray[0]

$ex1 = SetOption(Explicit,on)
$ex2 = SetOption(NoVarsInStrings,on)
$codeWeight = 0

If not Exist($path)
$temp = SetOption(Explicit,$ex1)
$temp = SetOption(NoVarsInStrings,$ex2)
Exit @ERROR
EndIf

If not vartype($f)
$f = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject").getfolder($path)
EndIf
If @ERROR
$temp = SetOption(Explicit,$ex1)
$temp = SetOption(NoVarsInStrings,$ex2)
Exit @ERROR
EndIf

For Each $temp In Split($options,"/")
$temp=Trim($temp)
Select
Case left($temp,1) = "s"
If not vartype($sfflag)
If Val(right($temp,-1)) = 0
$sfflag = -1
Else
$sfflag = Val(right($temp,-1))
EndIf
EndIf
Case Left($temp,1) = "a"
Select

$maskarray = Split(Right($temp,-2),"|")

I found that I had to remove this code when tesing here as there are profiles with a "." in the name.

If ($file<>".")

I'll try to take a further look at your example Christopher at work and see how it works out.

Does it also support the NT4 profiles?

Wasn't really trying to Golf it down so much as get it to actually work correctly.
As for SMS, I'm sure that not the only application out there that doesn't appreciate a profile just being rudely removed.

Also, I've found instances of profiles that were not in the Registry so I've stopped relying on the registry as the source of determining all profiles.

No problem jadewith, just saying that you should have a lot of checks in place to make sure you don't delete the wrong thing. I'll have to look at your solution further to see if it supports the different folder locations.
