We would like to do some file Archiving on a server?

OK, here is what we are thinking of doing.
We want to archive a folder based on the age of the files to a different location for online backup purposes. For Example:
D:\Share\Data\files.txt -> D:\Archive\Share\Data\files.txt based on age.
The archive location is read only and would be moved to tape. These files would be files that have not been touched in 6 months or more. This will greatly reduce the size of the "Live" files in the write location. The problem is that we could do this once with a lot of work, but we want to maintain it run it like once a month. That way only actual live files are being backedup to the online backup. Is there software that does this?
