You can create a .bat file with a command like this:

forfiles /P "\\remotecomputer\Share" /S /M *.bak /D -14 /C "cmd /c del @file"

14 says anything older than 14 days delete.  

Try running the command by itself using command prompt to test

ERROR: UNC paths (\\machine\share) are not supported.
Press any key to continue . . .

I need to enter the credentials to access the files.

I found my own solution.
The older files will be deleted at server level.
Thanks for the help.
