You can write small batch file with following command and schedule it as

For some reason, MS likes to change the syntax of the forfiles.exe utility
with each release of their server operating systems.

If you're going to use that against a W2K3 Server, the hyphens have been
replaced by forward slashes. More has changed than just the switch character
as the functionality of the @FILE, @PATH and @FNAME have also changed.

Subject: Script to remove network log/trace files

Does anyone have a script for Windows that will archive old network log
trace files and also remove any that are more than a month old (or at
be able to run under a monthly scheduled task)?    I have done this in
but not on Windows.
