I use PDEL, shareware written by Norm Patriquin, which I downloaded from a
BBS donkey's-ears ago. I would suggest that you put it in a batch file
(with a separate line for each logical disk, and you can also use it for
those .BAK files you don't need), but not in AUTOEXEC.BAT. You wouldn't
want to delete _all_ those .TMP files incase you needed an auto-save file
that was created shortly before your crash.
