    How to delete Google Chrome Cache in roaming profile on Virtual Desktops & stored path on server

    //Server/location\%username%/AppData\Roaming\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Code Cache\js

    and another location

    //virtualmachine/AppData\Roaming\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Code Cache\js This changes all the time with machine now. Could anyone help Thanks.

    I have done as below in a machine which works fine but unsure how it works for differnt laptopn number or pick all user name from a folder through "if"

    The one worked is

    $Now = Get-Date
    $Days = "30"
    $TargetFolder = "\\vmpvdb256\c$\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Code Cache\js\"
    $LastWrite = $Now.AddDays(-$Days)
    $Files = Get-Childitem $TargetFolder -Include $Extension -Recurse | Where {$_.LastWriteTime -le "$LastWrite"}
    foreach ($File in $Files) {
    if ($File -ne $NULL)
    write-host "Deleting File $File" -ForegroundColor "Yellow"
    Remove-Item $File.FullName | out-null
    Write-Host "Archive cleanup complete. No more files to delete!" -foregroundcolor "Green"

    I'm not quite sure what you mean with the locations, but this should do the trick for all users on local machine. -Include needs to have * in the end of the path and I didn't get that to work, so I went to the slower path of checking the extensions in where statement.

    $Extension = "html","json"
    $Days = 30
    $TargetFolder = "C:\Users\*\AppData\Roaming\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Code Cache\js"
    Get-Childitem $TargetFolder -Recurse | Where {$_.LastWriteTime -le $(Get-Date).AddDays(-$Days) -and $Extension -contains $_.extension} | Remove-Item -Verbose
