I have a shared windows drive with a large amount of data. This data is backed up everyday but I would like to run an application to identify data of a certain age and delete this data from the shared drive. This would ideally be an application where I could amend the date, display a list of the files\folders to be deleted and confirm that I want to delete the data. I am not sure if this can be achived with vbscript or a batch file or does anyone know of any free software that would achieve this. Can anyone help me with this?
