Hello, I need a vbs that will scan a folder and delete any files that are > 5 days old with 0 kb filesize. Can anyone offer any suggestions?
Dim fso, objShell
'===================================
'Start of Sub-routine
Sub fFIND(oFolder)
	DIM oFile
	DIM oSdate, oCdate,objFile
 
	'Look at each file in the current folder
	Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
	Set objFile = objFSO.GetFile((oFile.Name), "C:\myfolder\Log20*")
	
	For Each oFile in oFolder.Files
		
		'Check for a file of the format *LOG20*.TXT
		if inStr(uCase(oFile.Name), "LOG20") > 0 and uCase(right(oFile.name,4)) = ".TXT" then 
			oSdate = DateValue(oFile.DateLastModified)
			oCdate = DateDiff("d", oSdate, Date)
												
			'Log and delete *LOG20*.TXT files older than 15 days
	if oCdate >= 15 And objFSO.size < 2 Then
			Call LoggerF(oFile.Path)
		     	oFile.Delete True
			End if		
		
		end If
 
	Next
 
End Sub
'======================================
 
'=====================
'Write Log Sub
 
 
Sub LoggerF(fPath)
	DIM oFSO, oStream, oFile, WshNetwork
 
	On Error Resume Next
 
	Set WshNetwork = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network")
 
	Set oFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
	Set oFile = oFSO.GetFile("CleanupLog.txt")
	Set oStream = oFile.OpenAsTextStream(8, 0)
 
	oStream.Write VbCrLf & Ucase(WshNetwork.UserName) & " deleted " & fPath & " at " & Now
	oStream.Close
	
	set oStream = Nothing
	set oFile = Nothing
	set oFSO = Nothing
	set WshNetwork = Nothing
 
End Sub
'=====================
 
on error resume Next
Set fso = WScript.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objShell = Wscript.CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
 
'Call the Sub-routine that searches and deletes the files
fFIND fso.GetFolder("C:\myfolder")
objShell.LogEvent EVENT_SUCCESS, "Log file cleanup finished at " & date
Wscript.Quit
set objShell = Nothing
set fso = Nothing

Is there something wrong in the code you provided?  Do you get errors when its ran?  If so, can you tell what lines the errors are on?

No errors, no results. The files are not being eliminated.

please remark the
on error resume Next
and run again. (for debug)

all error are hidden so that you found no error.

No error still when I commented out the "On Error Resume Next" but when I commented out the file size dependent logic, it worked. I really would like to only remove the 0 kb files, can you see a flaw in my logic?
Thank you for your time!

If this is where your file size logic is:
      if oCdate >= 15 And objFSO.size < 2 Then

Shouldnt it read
      if oCdate >= 15 And oFile.size < 2 Then
