Locate and delete a file
Is it possible? And if so, how? To use PDQ Deploy to locate and delete a file that is located in every users Appdata folder? My goal is to locate and delete any instance of "C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Login Data". Is this possible? Or would this simply take too long to process on a large number of PCs with multiple users?
When we want to delete a file from all profiles we use a batch file to cycle through the profiles and deleting the file in each one if found.
I haven't tested it with your file, but you should be able to create a package with a step that calls a batch file that contains the following:
for /f %%a in ('dir /B /AD C:\Users') do (
if exist "C:\Users\%%a\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Login Data" del /F /Q "C:\Users\%%a\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Login Data"
Update: Edited to fix incorrect path in my first post..
The repository is located by default at%PUBLIC%DocumentsAdmin ArsenalPDQ DeployRepository; however, you can change the location of the repository using the Repository settings in Preferences. You can check it, elastic man
