Folder cleanup script

Hi,

I have a script (below) the runs on a schedule to clean up old folders. We have an automated system that puts new builds of a software development in folders in E:\XXX\PCInstaller\

I want a script that deletes any folders older than 1 week to keep the area clean. I tried using the below but obviously (now) it only deletes FILES and not folders.

Anyone help me on modding it so it works as I wish?

Thanks

Hi,

I found this elsewhere.

Line to specify folder to run within:
BasePath = ""

Line to select how many days back you wish to script to exclude:
if CalcResult > 2 then

Hope this helps someone!

Dim i, fso, f, f1, sf, BasePath, CalcResult, fNameArray()
BasePath = "D:\Reports"
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set f = fso.GetFolder(BasePath)
Set sf = f.SubFolders
For Each f1 in sf
     CalcResult = DateDiff("d",f1.DateCreated,Now)
          if CalcResult > 2 then
                ReDim preserve fNameArray(i)
                fNameArray(i) = f1.Name
                i = i + 1
        end if
Next
 
For Each fName in fNameArray
    FSO.DeleteFolder(BasePath & "\" & fName)
Next
