Code: 800a0046
Source:  Microsoft VBScript runtime error

here is the script

Dim fso, f, f1, fc, result
   Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
   Set f = fso.GetFolder("D:\GCTI\logs")
   Set fc = f.Files
   For Each f1 in fc
     result = DateDiff("n",f1.DateLastModified,Now)
    If result > 15 Then
        f1.Delete
    End If
   Next
   Set fso = Nothing
   Set f = Nothing
   Set fc = Nothing

Is it possible the file is still in use when attempting to delete ?

There are multiple files in the directory, is there something to add to the script to have it skip over a file if its in use and move on to the next??

Add this to the top or your script:

On Error resume next


Then when it kicks an error it will continue.

Comment it out if you need to troubleshoot the script, the uncomment when your are ready to put the script inot production.
