Thanks for the help.
1. SAS is not installed on my PC.
2. The only SAS data sets in which I am interested are already archived on
two separate external drives.
So, your syntax has worked perfectly for which I thank you.

Before I mention what commands, CAUTION: if
you have SAS installed on your PC, there are
lots of files belonging to SAS that you may
not wish to delete. If you were only refering
to your own user datasets then globally deleting
all the datasets off of your C: drive may prove
unpleasant and a bit more than you intended.
You can find all the datasets on C: to look
through first with:
Then if you must erase them all you can use
the same /S option for the ERASE command.
BE CAREFUL, even if just doing selected
Hope this is helpful.
