I want to use the forfile command in a batch file to delete a lot of files which are older than X days (files are added on a daily basis so the batch file will be run daily), these files are spread out through 14 seperate sub folders but there are two sub folders that I don't want forfiles to check. I want to use the /s syntax to make forfiles search recursesively through the (14) subfolders but how can I stop forfiles from checking the 2 subfolders I don't want it to check (moving the 2 sub folders is not an option). The only other way I can think of is to not use the /s syntax and write each path individually, does anybody know of an alternative way??
