If you are adding the additional files seperately (eg custom action) then you need to remove it using Custom Action.
let me know if you are adding the files by any other way

Actually some files are added by users. The InstallExpress REMOVE function just removes the files intalled by iteself. How can I remove the user files before next install?

Windows Installer does not automatically remove files it does not install. It does offer the ability to do that. However, InstallShield X Express Edition does not expose an interface to that in IDE. You will have to create a custom action to delete these files at uninstallation.

If you are interested, you are encouraged to evaluate (http://www.installshield.com/products/installshield/editions.asp) InstallShield 10.5 Premier/Professional Edition.
