30 Day Batch File

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I am trying to write a script that will look at a shared diirectory and pull out any file that hasn't been accessed in the last 30 days.  I have been working with VBscripts, Robocopy, Forfiles, and none of them seem to work correctly for what I am trying to do.  I can't be the only person who is trying to write a script to clean out a folder after 30 days.  I want it to copy the files and folder structure to another location, and then from their I have a script that will delete them.
