we have shares in the network to clean up
I need a tool that scans a share and generates an output with the following fields:
File name: last date modified: Size:

preferably sorting the files out from the oldest in (Last date Modified) to the newest

Any help will be very much appreciated

I use TreeSize Professional for this (Jam Software).  It is great for finding large files (which is where you need to look for space saving) and can sort by various attributes.
