Windows 2000 – Clearing and Reusing Folders

I am IT tech at high school. I maintain 300+ individual student folders on the server. Every mini-semester (7 x yearly)I empty the old contents from students' assignment folders and then copy/paste new assignments into these folders for use by the next classes. This resetting process has become redundant and time-consuming as student population has increased. Is there a batch file or other that can be written to expedite this delete/copy/paste process? Thank you for your input.

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

batch files can certainly be written for this, and even put into the scheduler for automatic run if needed. Below is a good reference for scripting syntax, etc.:

    How about creating a template that will contain all required folders. You would delete the working copy and create fresh one by copying the template. You could have a template with or without project files. If project files change, batch file/script could be used to populate new working copy with project files.

    Thank you for taking the time to respond. I do already use a template but not a batch file. I will follow your suggestions. THX
