I have a script that can move files based on x hours to another directory. I want to adjust it so that instead of moving the files, it deletes them.
dir "e:\test" *.log |select name, fullname, Path, LastWriteTime , @{Expression={((get-date) - $_.CreationTime).TotalHours};Name="Hours"} | Where {$_.Hours -ge 72} | ForEach{$m="e:\test\archive" + $_.Name;move $_.FullName $m}
