Find Files Based on Age
Message ID:
This might be simple, but I haven't found a solution yet.  I have a
script that I use on our Unix boxes that uses 'find' to get a list of
files in a certain directory that are a certain number of days old and
removes them from the system (find / -name * -mtime +45 -exec rm -rf {}
\;).  I need to port this to a Windows 2000 Server (he shudders as he
says this) and haven't been able to find a command or module that will
do the same search based on the age of the file.  Can anyone clue me
into some Windows magic please.
