Deleting file containing specific path

Hi Forum!

Does anyone know, if it is somehow possible to target files, that contains a path name accross multiple directories?

For an example:


Is it possible to create a deletion process that scans the paths of all files, and then deletes them if the path contains unwanted?

Currently i have no example of code to execute this, i am struggling to find documentation regarding if this is even possible.

Can anyone point me in the right direction? :slight_smile:

Best regards

you can always use Get-ChildItem with -Filter parameter. Below is an example.

Get-ChildItem -Path c:\RootFolder -Filter *unwanted* -Recurse -Directory

Save the output of the above expression in a variable and process further for deletion.

I suggest to read the help doc of Get-ChildItem and Remove-Item cmdlet.
