Hi tzachie

To display directories only try this, you could redirect this to fille
and use that to delete your directories.
The 12 days old is alot more difficult in Batch.
Display a dir *.* /a-d here and I might be able to help.

dir *. /s /b

Sorry I did,nt notice the VB script.

vbscript: if your script is deleting the files, it should be able to delete dirs the same way:

Delete Method
Deletes a specified file or folder.

object.Delete( force );

Required. Always the name of a File or Folder object.

Optional. Boolean value that is True if files or folders with the read-only attribute set are to be deleted; False (default) if they are not.
if you have trouble incorporating this method, you might want to post the vbscript code you're working with.
