  • thank you so much for the script. your blog is first hit in most PS issues.

  • Good morning. Firstly, I want to thank you for this site – your scripts have helped me on quite a few occasions. I have two questions.

    Firstly, do you have an example script on how to *remove* the “Everyone” & “Everyone except external users” from all sites in a tenant? It seems my predecessor had added those groups to quite a few sites, and 2 years later it’s been found that people have been viewing information that they shouldn’t. We’ve decided to send out comms to let people know we’ll be removing those groups from all sites, and if they want them back to contact us. I just haven’t been able to figure out a script for doing it (and we have in the region of 15,000 sites in our tenant)

    My second question is do you have an example for how to delete a specifically named file recursively through the subsites of a site? One of our businesses in the Netherlands has an executive site, with subsites for each board member. The structure of all the subsites is identical. The PA copies files to a folder on the root site, and then there’s a flow and some azure app that then copies the file to the same location on each subsite (again, this was done by my predecessor, and there’s no source code or any form of documentation on how it was built). What they would like to do is, if they upload a file with an exclamation mark at the beginning (eg !Document1.docx), then a script will run and DELETE the file called Document1.docx from each of the subsites. The explanation is that Document1.docx was uploaded in error, and they need to delete it, but no-one has access to all 17 board members’ subsites.

    I would appreciate it if you could possibly point me in the right direction on these.

    Thank you, and have a good day.
