I am fairly new to vbscript, but learning every day. I need a vbscript that will check only in the first level subfolder from the root folder. Then it checks the DateLastModified on all files in that folder. If a file meets criteria, then copy (or preferably move) that folder (and its contents) to another folder. I have the following code, but it checks All Subfolders.
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
objRootFolder = "W:\CasesT"
Set objFolder = objFSO.GetFolder(objRootFolder)
ShowSubfolders objFSO.GetFolder(objRootFolder)
Sub ShowSubFolders(Folder)
    For Each Subfolder in Folder.SubFolders
        Set objFolder = objFSO.GetFolder(folder.Path)
        Set colFiles = objFolder.Files
  	a = 0
    For Each objFile in colFiles
	dtmDate = objFile.DateLastModified
	fileDate = DateDiff("m", dtmDate, Date)
	If fileDate < 1 Then
	a = 1
	Exit For
	End If
        Next
	If a = 1 Then
	objFSO.CopyFolder objFolder.Path , "W:\Cases2\"
	End If
        ShowSubFolders Subfolder
    Next
End Sub

This should do it.


strSource = "W:\CasesT"
strDest = "W:\Cases2"
intMonths = 1
 
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objFolder = objFSO.GetFolder(strSource)
 
For Each objSubfolder in objFolder.SubFolders
    For Each objFile in objSubfolder.Files
        dtmDate = objFile.DateLastModified
        
        If DateDiff("m", dtmDate, Date) < intMonths Then
            objFSO.CopyFolder objSubfolder.Path, strDest & "\"
            Exit For
        End If
    Next
Next
