    Need batch file to delete user files in Windows XP

    I need help with a batch file for Windows XP.

    Here is what I have so far:

    @ Echo Off

    rmdir "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Nuance\Dragon SDK Client Edition9" /Q/S>nul

    rmdir "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Nuance\Pssdk" /Q/S>nul

    rmdir "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Nuance\PowerScribe\areeves" /Q/S>nul

    rmdir "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Nuance\PowerScribe\aalli" /Q/S>nul

    The last two commands in my batch file removes folders that are created by users. These file will be re-created once the user logs back in to the application. Is there a way for me to remove all files from the \Powerscribe folder without naming each user individually? I know I can delete the \PowerScribe folder as a whole as I’ve done with the previous commands but I have an xml doc in the \PowerScribe folder that contains system settings for the application and I don’t want to delete that. Any help would be appreciated.

    If you wish to delete files which are 7 days old then follow the following Code:
    FOR /R C:\User_share %%FILE IN (*.*) DO (
    ECHO starting if
    IF(0 == (ISDATE %%~zFILE before TODAY -7))
    DEL %%FILE
    Follow the below code to delete a particular file:
    del /s /q c:\Temp\*
    rmdir /s /q c:\Temp\
    mkdir c:\Temp
