how to delete all *.ost files?

7 posts in this topic

Hello.. .

We're getting ready for an office upgrade and during the upgrade, I've been asked to delete the previous OST file. Does AutoIt have a wildcard option other than FileFindFirstFile?

Thank you

keilamym,

Dog eaten your Help file? :P

Look at FileListToArrayRec - that should do the trick. ;)
