problem with deleting temp files

Recommended Posts

change "-A-S-T" to "-HRS".

A & T have no impact.

H also has no impact, but it's easier to later see if anything is left.

R is probably your culprit.

and of course, make sure the files you are unable to delete are not in use, either by your script or by another process.

EDIT: glad to see you dropped the "!!" from your posts titles, it's been somewhat annoying  :)

Please be more specific as to which part is not working, setting the attributes or deleting the files (and I agree with orbs, enough with the !! after every sentence)

Your FileSetAttrib command works just fine for me, except for those temp files in use. If you run just that line, do you see the proper attributes being set?

I seem to remember that the entire process stops the first time any of the File* functions used with a wildcard comes across a file it cannot use. That might be the reason nothing seems to be deleted - one of the first few files is still in use and so cannot be deleted. :)

Why not use _FileListToArray to get a listing of the files in the Temp folder and then try to delete them one by one? It might take a bit longer but it will not fail when it fails to delete one. ;)
