How to list folders that don't contain recently created files

Last Modified: 2012-05-11

I'm trying to do some housekeeping on a number of folders. I'd like to have a batch file that will list folders that have no files created in the last X number of days.

For example, I'd like to list all the folders that haven't had any new files added to it in the last 30 days. That way I can identify folders that are not active.

A simple command line or batch file would be ideal. It's on a Windows 2005 Server.
