forfiles.exe /p D:\Files /s /m *.* /d -7 /c "cmd /c del @file"
|/p||This parameter specifies the path that contain the files I wish to delete.|
|/s||This parameter tells the program to recurse into any subfolders to look for additional files.|
|/m||If you want to specify a specific file type, this parameter will allow you to limit the search to specific files, such as *.doc for Word documents. In my case, I looked for all files (*.*).|
|/d||This one is the key parameter – it specifies the last modified date value. In my example I specify “-7″ which indicates that the files need to have a modified date 7 days less than the current date.|
|/c||This is the command that I execute on the files found by the program. The delete command is executed in a command window for each file.|
