Make A List Of Directory By Date


Recommended Posts


I have a folder that I would like to have a macro check the number of files

within it and if it is greater than 3 delete the remaining files based on

the date. Any files older than the third oldest file would be deleted.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.



Again, shows File Dates by integers”immediately” converted to a “comparison date sting value”; direct editor/ “RMIV” command;

I have thought it would be easiest to use a sort program for this; first creates a list of files in the directory, sorted by date, then shows in a text file those that would be deleted if you chose to keep the last “x” files .

The “Sort” is a .vbs derivative of Floyd’s vbs sort; runs in 2 lines as “Run Macro in variable”

Let me know; Randall
