Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You could try using the RMVLNK command with a generic name e.g. RMVLNK ‘/temp/~*’

    How do you know they're "temp" files? Having a tilde as part of their name does not make them temporary. The only thing that makes them temporary is being deleted by the program that creates them -- unless the program fails of course, which is why you'll find 'tilde' files on most Windows PCs in multiple directories. If you want such files deleted, you probably ought to schedule a program that deletes them -- that's what the job scheduler is for. Tom
