I SWEAR 4WD where in the heck do you find all this stuff.
I fully expected to get an "Invalid Command" when i typed that but ...It worked.
YU Da Man ..
As usual. I hope i can get it to run inside the same recursive scanner.
Thanks for that. I had been trying out some useful (or not) utilities and after running one of them got a Little "chicken" about using things i could not verify how they worked before using them.
One of these did a great job of cleaning up the system hosting these files. Including removing All the stored passwords in my browsers which , I admit, are not the most "secure" places to keep them but after a while i kind of forgot they were even there. And now.. They ARE NOT there for real! Almost could not get back in here.
Anyway, the author gave me fair warning and the utility is 100% great stuff IF you heed the warnings. Now if I can only find where I put the utility when i downloaded it
. It was called system cleanup or some such and has a thousand options of all kinds
I can now modify my recursive search script to find and remove both zero length files AND any encrypted ones. I hope there is a way to get the command to differentiate between System encrypted and User encrypted. ( I think <hope?>it is a different algorithm )?
I would not want to " clean my clock " on any normal system files just get rid of old document files that can't be opened anyway. They got encrypted with the early version of EFS on Server 2003 that makes the names look "green". The keys for them are long gone and the files need to be gone too as no one can open them now.
Anyway. Request was Solved 100%
