Delete Files Based On File Age

Ever wanted to delete every file over a certain age? Maybe for pesky log files that are ballooning the storage on your server?

The below script will delete all files in a specified folder that is older than the current date. Modify as necessary to change the age of files you want. Set up a Windows task to run as necessary.

$folder = "C:\Path\To\Folder"
$date = Get-Date -format "MM/dd/yyyy" | out-string
$files = Get-childitem -path $folder | where {$_.LastWriteTime -lt $date}
Remove-item $files.FullName
