Deleting folders in user areas but ignoring folder called 'save'
Has anyone got a script that I can run on a student directory to delete any folders or files in their user area but ignore folders named 'save' ?
Basically the last few years the previous network manager cleared the student home drives of rubbish by making them move anything they wanted to keep into a folder named save.
He and his technicians then manually went through student by student and deleted and files/folders that weren't in the save folder.
I'm looking for a quicker method to do the same.

You could use robocopy to move the files apart from stuff in a folder called save (using /xd switch). Then delete to stuff in the destination.
