Script to remove files

Last Modified: 2019-11-26

I was wondering if someone could help..... I have a windows 2012 fileserver I need to carry out some file deletion in mass on... I need a script that I can run periodically on the folder redirection store to delete files in staff "downloads" folders that are older than 60 days.

Expanding on this I may want to introduce a "last accessed" variable a little later on.

Any advice welcome.
