    My forum is scheduled to do backups every day and save them to c:forumbackups is there any software that i can use to delete files older than 1 week from this folder.

    EDIT:or maybe a script would be better?

    If you're not that familiar with scripting, grab a hold of 4NT from here.

    Scripting isn't really my bag, but, although this isn't a scripting host per se, it does contain a whole host of options for enhancing the command line tools which makes batch scripting easier.

    For instance, your issue could probably resolved something like this:

    DEL /[d-7,1/1/80] /Y \\C:\forumbackups

    The same thing using WSH\VBScript would take a lot more code than that!
