If your not using Roaming profiles, you probably use a GPO redirect for the "My Documents" and the "Application Data" folders don't you ?

It is about the place where the Roaming Profiles are stored

I know Witto, I was referring to NTDOC's statement about "Roaming profiles are bad for you"
Anyway, it is simple, enumerate all users in AD compare the users to the folders using simple Dir() and if the user does not exists remove dir.

An example code to list the users:
Code:

Function ListADUsers
Dim $User, $Users
$Users = GetObject("WinNT://@ldomain")
$Users.filter = "User",""
For Each $User In $Users
? $User.Name
Next
EndFunction

No I don't use one but mainly due to the fact that the old data structure is still in place and I still need to move all the user data to a new location with real security settings. Right now everyone group has mod rights in most places.

I've started moving data but so many things going on I don't have time to dedicate yet to moving all the user data.

Very few people save to the My Documents they've been told many times not to save locally, so most don't now days.

Hi

my script, delete still all folders.

Code:
  

call "D:\KIX\GroupMembers.udf"
call "D:\KIX\DirPlus.udf"

$members = groupmembers(@Domain,"Domain Users")

for each $member in $members
? $member

next

$folders = dirplus("D:\00", "/ad /s")


for each $folder in $folders
? $folder.name
? $folder.path

If AScan($Members, $folder.name) = -1
$folder.delete
EndIf
next



I have change in the script "$members" at name.

Code:

call "D:\KIX\GroupMembers.udf"
call "D:\KIX\DirPlus.udf"

$members = groupmembers(@Domain,"Domain Users")

for each $member in $members
? $member

next

$folders = dirplus("D:\00", "/ad /s")


for each $folder in $folders
? $folder.name
? $folder.path

If AScan(Test, $folder.name) = -1
$folder.delete
EndIf
next



Dirplus output:
Test
d:\00\test
test2
d:\00\test2

all subfolder are delete (test, test2) and he had to be delete only test2

can you check my script ?

Good Night

well, your script won't work as "Test" is no array, thus your ascan() test returns always with the delete result.
put the array back.

then, change the ascan if to this:
Code:

If AScan($Members, $folder.name) = -1
? $folder.name " " $folder.delete
EndIf



compare this output with the members output before and you will what you have wrong in the script.
