Hi,

I am looking for a batch file to delete files older than X days

I found one here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/MS_DOS/Q_21887658.html

By SteveGTR which looks perfect but since I have to look in like 30 different folders I don’t want 30 separate batch files, Is it possible to modify this to so you set multiple source directories?

The batch processing in that solution accepts an optional directory as a parameter. You could call it from another batch file like this:

call DelOldFiles.bat "c:\temp"
call DelOldFiles.bat "c:\tmp"

Good Luck,
Steve

i have a way to do it in vbscript with one folder and i'm sure if you know vbscript or vb you could easily make it go through as many folders as you want.
