Windows batch command for deleting particular pattern named folders in temp

Hi All,'

I need to write a windows bat program to delete particular folders with naming pattern scoped_dir45666 (for example)(including contents)
with batch program. For that I am using below code:
Code:
@echo off
cd /D %temp%
for /d %%D in (*) do rd /s /q "%%D"
del /f /q *

i got above code from some forum, but its deleting everything causing system issues...(its screwing some os files also I guess)

I need to delete all directories names starting with scoped_dirxxxxx (scoped_dir*) can some one advise how to modify above code to delete only folders name starting with scoped_dir in %temp% folder

Canonical provides security updates and support for each Ubuntu release, starting from the release date and until the release reaches its designated end-of-life (EOL) date. Canonical generates revenue through the sale of premium services associated with Ubuntu.

Ubuntu is released every six months with long-term support (LTS) releases every two years.
