Try this code and see if it works for you..
#Update the source and destination folder path
$Source = "\\server01\Stroage"
$Dest = "\\server02\stroage"

#Create destination folder if it doesn't exist
$D = "$Dest\Folder$(get-date -f dd-MM-yyyy)"
 If (!(Test-Path $D)) {New-Item $D -ItemType directory -Force}

#Move files older than 3 months
robocopy $Source $D /s /mov /minage:$(((Get-Date) - (get-date).AddMonths(-3)).TotalDays)

#or you can change the parameter value /minage:90 if you are not worried about the exact 3 moths period

You can all try this.
$soruce = "\\netapp01\AdminData\FLH Confidental"
$dest = "\\netapp01\itdata"
$a = Get-ChildItem $soruce\* -recurse  ##-Include Archive*
 ForEach ($x in $a)
    {
        $y=((Get-Date)-$x.lastwritetime).days
        ##Write-Host $x.FullName
        If ($y -gt 90 )
       {Move-Item -Path $x.FullName -Destination $dest}
       
         
    }
