Auto Delete Utility from List

We are in need of creating a script to delete files / folders. The exactly location of these files / folders are not known. The script must accept as parameter a filename with a list of such files files/folders and the path from which to start searching from, i.e.

autodelete [url removed, login to view] c:\path /y

where [url removed, login to view] would contain:

[url removed, login to view]


[url removed, login to view]

this would delete all filenames that match the above under c:\path and recursively. Once it finishes the files, it would delete the folders and all files inside it. There may be a way to accomplish this via a clever command-line, that uses find and del.

please note, on the [url removed, login to view], no paths are specified, just a list of files and folder names and also there may be instances of other files / folders with the same name on other subfolders.

once the script starts running it will search for the files/folders to be deleted, who the full file/folder qualified with path and ask user to confirm deletion, unless parameter is set to -y, in which case, it will show the list as it deletes the files/folders.

Finally, we like to have a "just list" mode, where you just find all the occurrences, including the fully qualified path but not prompt for deletion and would never perform the delete operation (even if /y is set), i.e. autodelete [url removed, login to view] c:\path /justlist
