    Can you please tell me how could I create a script that will be executed as
    scheduled task that will go to folder c:\YYY and remove all the files that
    are older than lets say 30 days(using Shift+Delete). Script that will also
    allow me to specify what files to remove whether by file ext. and/ or by the
    way files are named.

    Thanks
