A little help please

Recommended Posts


Hi, below is the code to move files from yesterday to some other folder. I want it to be modified in a way to move the files older than 1 day. Help appreciated, thanks.

#include <Date.au3>
#include <File.au3>

$srcfolder = "C:\WINDOWS\system32\LogFiles\W3SVC1" ; Set the source folder
$FileList = _FileListToArray($srcfolder) ; List all files in the array
$arTime = StringSplit(_DateAdd("D", -1, _NowCalcDate()), "/") ; Split yesterdays date up by the / delimeter
Dim $newTime
For $a = 1 To UBound($arTime) - 1
    $newTime &= $arTime[$a] ; Everytime we find a piece of the date, concatenate it

For $i = 1 To UBound($FileList) - 1 ; For each file in the array
    $FileTime = StringTrimRight(FileGetTime($srcfolder & "\" & $FileList[$i], 0, 1), 6) ; Get its creation date as a string and trim the time off
    If $FileTime = $newTime Then ; If the file date matches the current date
        FileMove($srcfolder & "\" & $FileList[$i], "\\server.share.local\Logs\W3SVC", 1) ; Move the file
