_FileListToArray - I want to remove any "temp" directories from the array

Hi All,

This is what I have so far and I always drive my self crazy when it comes to arrays so yes, I'm giving up... asking for help lol. Sorry if I'm a newb but I love this program, forum and culture - you guys are the best! Thanks!

Trying to remove any "Temp" directory from the $Filelist array - and I have a whole bunch of others listed in my notes.

For now I'm testing on my D: drive for a temp directory... but I would like to delete any C:\Documents and Settings\ for any user folder not system related. We have devices that everyone logs into and it clusters things up.

#include <Array.au3>
#include <File.au3>

#RequireAdmin

Global $ProgramTitle1, $FileList, $sPath

$ProgramTitle1 = "Test"

SplashTextOn($ProgramTitle1, "Creating file list for D:\", 400, 40, -1, -1, 2, "", 10)
Sleep (2000)

$sPath = "D:\"

$FileList = _FileListToArray($sPath , "*" , 2)
SplashOff()

If @error = 1 Then
MsgBox(0, "", "Path not found or invalid")
Exit
EndIf
If @error = 4 Then
MsgBox(0, "", "No File(s) Found")
Exit
EndIf

_ArrayDisplay($FileList, "Before")

Local $rows = UBound($FileList)
Local $cols = UBound($FileList, 2)
Local $dims = UBound($FileList, 0)

MsgBox(0, "The " & $dims & "-dimensional array has", _
$rows & " rows, " & $cols & " columns")

; Work in progress AKA I have no idea what I'm doing and I'm trying to get it right lol...

For $i = 1 To $FileList[0]
If $FileList[$i] == "Temp" Then _ArrayDelete($FileList, $i)
Next

_ArrayDisplay($FileList, "After")

;Note to self "Administrator" or "All Users" or "Default User" or "LocalService" or "NetworkService" or @UserName

souldjer777,

Take a look at the RecFileListToArray UDF in my sig - that allows you to define folder names that are not listed in the return. ;)

Please ask again if you need more help. :)

If you're looking to delete user's folders other than the default ones, such as Administrator/Default User/All Users (xp and below), then you might want to take a look at the link in my signature for how I gathered the user folders in a script I posted that I use to back up user's folders. This script should work on XP or above, and you can modify it as needed to do what you're looking to do.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

First and foremost...

:ILA:

And yes... you guys are the bomb diggity! ;) I felt like I needed to post my program because otherwise what's the point of asking and never having the question / answer provided... Here's a program to delete temp files and extra profiles in XP.

!!! Use on a test device ONLY !!!

I'm NEW so I know I could've looped through dir1 to dir3... it's just easier for me to read right now and loops in loops are tough so...

Notes For Program Below:

Password is "test123" obviously.

Deletes files and folders in the following:

$dir1 = "C:Cache_Directory"

$dir2 = "C:Temp"

$dir3 = "C:WindowsTemp"

$sPath1 = "C:Documents and Settings"

Excluded Folders in "C:Documents and Settings" are..

Administrator;

All Users;

Default User;

LocalService;

NetworkService;

CURRENT_USER or @Username;

Modify the program to suit your purpose :)
