On a semi-related note, is there any way (using "pure" cmd.exe) to identify files older than say, 5 days? For example, something similar to "find . -name "myfile\* -mtime +5".

Unfortunately I'm not allowed to add additional software, so the use
of add-on tools like cygwin/perl/etc. simply isn't an option. :(
