For Vista I ran smack dab into this until I opened an elevated prompt.
I can't know if you run Vista or not.
-> You mention TIME STAMP. Do you remember "DOS FILE TUNNELING"? If not, please research that as this is why TIME STAMPS on files survive when you delete and create a file quickly. The FILE TUNNELING TIME is settable in the registry but I'll stop here since you have 2 answers and a direction for your research.
Hello, I create a time and date stamp record with a .TXT extension for 9 folders and 6 sub folders on a windows 2000 O/S such as below for a total of 54 folders each of which has a time stamp.TXT record
My data is in folders such as below;
Than repeat the folders as above 9 times [ C:\WebSite_02\FolderA\TimeFileA.txt ]
I would like to delete the time stamp.TXT records from all of the 54 folders and sub folders and have tried the following batch file without success
Del C:\Webs\*.txt /S
Please advise me how to get the deletion of all the records that have an extension of .TXT to work?
