ROBOCOPY files older than 30 days exclude folders

I am using robocopy to move files not accessed in 30 days:

ROBOCOPY "C:\_Test1" "C:\_TEST2" /move /minlad:0 /s

However, it is not quite doing what I need.  I want it to move files but leave all folders intact.

Have you tried ROBOCOPY "C:\_Test1" "C:\_TEST2" /move /minage:30 /s

/MINAGE:n Excludes files with a Last Modified Date newer than n days or specified date. If n is less than 1900, then n is expressed in days. Otherwise, n is a date expressed as YYYYMMDD.

/MOV Moves files (that is, deletes source files after copying).
/MOVE Moves files and directories (that is, deletes source files and directories after copying).

Reference the following link for complete Robocopy switches and usage...

..Also, overwrite duplicate files and recreate file structure in destination.

So the key here is using /MOV and not /MOVE
