Folders Extension

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

Group Policy includes the Folders preference extension. For computers or users, this extension allows you to:

  • Create a folder and configure its attributes.

  • Modify a folder and configure its attributes.

  • Delete a folder and its contents.

  • Delete a folder only if it is empty.

  • Delete all files within a folder (such as a temporary files folder) without deleting the folder.

  • Delete all files within a folder without deleting subfolders.

noteNote
To configure individual files rather than folders, see Files Extension.

Getting started

You can create and configure Folder preference items for any domain-based Group Policy object (GPO). You configure the settings by editing a GPO using the Group Policy Management Console. When editing a GPO, you can find this preference extension at the following location:
