    client's side directory

    hi to all,
    can javascript access the client's side directory?
    can it retrieve delete files in client's side?
    cause i have to delete file in a client side if that folder exists or file type exist. cause i dont want all the employees save images on their workstation, it occupies a lot of space and it is hard to delete a lot of images everyday.i have a program that they are using everyday for their log and it is mandatory. i will put the script/code on the program. when it sees an images on the client side it will automatically delete it.
    im new in javascript.

    please help

    thanks

    JavaScript does not have access to the client-side filesystem (thankfully). Just imagine the security implications!

    With JScript in IE you may be able to do something, but I guess you'll have to use some sort of ActiveX control.
