I am developing a script which deletes all files that is contained in a specific folder.
This script works fine. But the problem occurs when any one file is currently opened.
If a file is opened during this script execution, it shows the message “The operation cannot be completed because the item “xxx.pdf” is in use.”
What I want is when a file is opened during the script execution, the script should ignore this file and deletes all other file.
My script is below:
property del : "folder1:TRASH:Gopal" as alias tell application "Finder" try delete every file of folder del delete every folder of folder del on error display dialog "Could not delete the file" end try end tell
Could any one help me on this.
