automating folder moves via VBScript by age

I'm trying to automate the process of moving archived email folders off our mail server to a backup server based on age criteria.
I thought I had the whole thing working, but now the age requirement isn't working.

here's my code

OPTION EXPLICIT
dim oFS, oFolder, nfolder, count, count2, maxage, includesubfolders, oSubFolder, of, nf
of = "C:\Documents and Settings\user\Desktop\test"
nf = "C:\Documents and Settings\user\Desktop\test2"
set oFS = WScript.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
set oFolder = oFS.GetFolder(of)
set nFolder = oFS.GetFolder(nf)
set osubfolder = ofolder.subfolders

count = nfolder.subfolders.count
maxage = 1
includesubfolders = true
      for each osubfolder in ofolder.subfolders
      on error resume next
            IF oSubFolder.DateLastModified < (Now - MaxAge) THEN
            oFS.copyFolder of, nf

      
            count2 = nfolder.subfolders.count
                  if count2 > count then
                        oFS.deleteFolder of      
                        
                  end if      

            end if
      next

if anyone has a better way to do this, great, if now I'll go with this.

OPTION EXPLICIT
dim oFS, oFolder, nfolder, count, count2, maxage, includesubfolders, oSubFolder, of, nf
of = "C:\Documents and Settings\user\Desktop\test\"
nf = "C:\Documents and Settings\user\Desktop\test2\"
set oFS = WScript.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
set oFolder = oFS.GetFolder(of)
set nFolder = oFS.GetFolder(nf)
set osubfolder = ofolder.subfolders

count = nfolder.subfolders.count
maxage = 1
includesubfolders = true

      for each osubfolder in ofolder.subfolders
      on error resume next
            IF oSubFolder.DateLastModified < (Now - MaxAge) THEN
                  oFS.copyFolder osubfolder, nf

                  count2 = nfolder.subfolders.count
                        if count2 > count then
                              On Error Resume Next
                              oFS.deleteFolder osubfolder
                                    
                        end if      

            
            end if
