Does anyone have a good script that will delete an old, non-booting, inactive Windows directory from the command-line?
rd /s /q <directory name>
From a CMD command prompt.
How's that work for you?
Okay-- how about:
takeown /F <directory name> /R /D Y cacls <directory name> /T /G Everyone:F rd /s /q <directory name>
Should be run from an elevated command-prompt.
Not sure what OS you are running, but if it is Vista, instructions on deleting the windows.old directory can be found here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/930527 or http://support.microsoft.com/kb/933212 (they pretty much say the same thing).
Edit: I see in the subject line that it is Vista... Those KB articles should do the trick.
