I have a directory with thousands of
html files scattered across several subdirectories. I need to delete all files matching any one of many criteria. All criteria are similar by kind. The file names are like:
So, all files that are ending in certain hostnames must be deleted. There are about 20 hostnames for now. (But that number will increase to about 100.) I store a list in
txt file and prefer to do so.
__first.site.com.html __www.secondsite.com_.html __site.com_numberthree.html
The thing is, some "good" files contain "bad" hostnames but not at end of file name.
__www.onesite.com_.html (bad) __www.onesite.com_prices.html (good)
Can I create a bach file to safely scan all subdirectories and remove unnecessary files using the list? OS is Windows 7. I want to set up Task Scheduler to run such butch each night. But I'm not familiar with commands. Please help.
P.S. In fact, some "bad" files have linked folders
_files. I expect they will be deleted automatically like it happens when I manually delete main
