    Delete files in My Music and My Pictures

    Our students have started loading music files into the "All users" my music Sample Music folder and then making sure they come back to that PC to listen to the music.
    Is there anyway to stop them from getting to the folder or is there a script that I could run to delete what they put in there? Or indeed a Group Policy setting that would do it?
    The "Sample Music" folder points to the All users profile on the local machine.

    delete "c:\documents and settings\all users\my documents\my music\*.*" /y

    I believe - someone else may have a better solution though.

    @jamesreedersmith's delete statement should do it (but del not delete) but you might also want to set the folder to read-only so they can't put more stuff there. You could do this with a group policy to change the permissions.

    Restrict access to C Drive in grouop policy. That way they cant get to it.
