I am new to VB 6.0, and I need a code that looks for specific folders and files in my C drive and delete all the files that are older than 2 years.

My C drive has a lot of folders and sub folders...

I would like my code to go through the first folder and keep drilling in all the subfolders until it hits the end, and then go back to second folder and do the same etc..., looking for any folder or file older than 2 years.

Now i do not want the code to delete the folder or file according to the date it was modified , but according to its name.
The names are of 2 different forms: "yyyy-mm-dd" and "yyyy_mm_dd" ( note the difference between the dash and the underscore)

for example: today is 2011-12-01, so my code will look for anything earlier than 2009-12-01 and delete it.


Could some one provide me with the code please? This is the first time I deal with VB6.

Thanks
