VbScript Delete files older an specific date


I want to delete all the SQL backups that have more than a week.

Dim NumberOfDays, FileLocation

NumberOfDays = 7

FileLocation =  “D:\BackupFiles”

Set objFSO = CreateObject(“Scripting.FileSystemObject”)
Set objFolder = objFSO.GetFolder(FileLocation)
Set colSubfolders = objFolder.Subfolders
Set colFiles = objFolder.Files

For Each objSubfolder in colSubfolders

Set colFiles = objSubfolder.Files
For Each objFile in colFiles

If objFile.DateLastModified < (Date() – NumberOfDays) Then
End If



Don’t forget to save this in a .vbs file

hope that this information can be useful
