Hello,

I'm trying to create a batch file that will delete & remake temporary directories, but it isn't working. There are two directories that I want to do this two, and the second one doesn't work. here is the code:

@echo off
rd c:\windows\TEMP /s /q
md C:\windows\TEMP

rd C:\Documents and Settings\christ\Local Settings\Temp /s /q
md C:\Documents and Settings\christ\Local Settings\Temp

Are the spaces in the directory the problem? If so, how do i fix it?

Thanks,
Chris

This will work as long as the TEMP dir is empty or it is not locked by another process.
Any solution for such scenario? I have "BITxx" files (where xx are random digits) that keep multiplying and growing in the TEMP dir. I can delete ALL of them except for ONE. Once I do that, I see more files being recreated. Please advise.
