Oh great developers, please look favorably upon this poor soul.
We're purging a lot of data at work (no, not Enron-style). I'm going to delete a bunch of files with specific extensions, above a specific size, and older than a specific date to reduce our storage footprint. Easy enough so far.
However, now I've been asked to create a log of all the files that we delete and what folder they were in "for future reference" - a reasonable enough request, but one that takes me out of my comfort zone. I found this post
that I think is generally what I want - but I just don't have the chops to confidently modify and execute it for my purposes. The most sophisticated batch file I've written in years copies files to a RAM drive before launching my Minecraft server. Can you help a gerbil out with a little forum-based training?
