Hello script geeks!

Today I want to talk about how you can easiest remove files and folder that is older than X days. You can get use of cmdlet Get-ChildItem to List all files and folder, where CreationDate i older than X days. And to remove the items get use of cmdlet Remove-Item.

Run following cmdlet:

$FilePath = "<-Path-> Ex: c:\test\" # Set Folder to check files and folder
$FileThatIsOlderThanDays = -7 # Set number of days back in time you will go

Get-ChildItem -Path ($FilePath) -Recurse | Where-Object {$_.CreationDate -le (Get-Date).AddDays($FileThatIsOlderThanDays)} | Remove-Item -Force
