Google Earth cache for all terminal server users

Great tool, makes my life as a sysadmin easier :)

It would be great if you could expand the Google Earth component to include the cache of all terminal server users, where available, though. Currently it only cleans the cache for the current user.

Thank you for the feedback. I do understand the problem from administrator's point of view, however, there is one problem with the kind of behavior you are looking for. The problem is that disk cleanup can only delete or modify files that it has access to, which means it can only manipulate files common to all users, current user's files, and when invoked as administrator, system files (but only those the administrator can access). When doing manual cleanup, the administrator might be able to take ownership or modify the permissions of users' folders and continue to clean them up. However, this would definitely not be a good practice from security point of view (also, it might interfere with anti-virus and data encryption applications).

You can, however, use scripting to invoke disk cleanup when users log in or log out (or using the Task Scheduler triggers), which should solve the problem.
