    Hi there,

    I want to use ROBOCOPY to move any file that is older than 30 days.
    I've tried this command but it seems to move the file anyway, even though the file is only 4 days old:

    robocopy * C:\b2d C:\archive /mov /minage: 01-04-2011

    From "/minage: 01-04-2011" i thought it would only move files that are at least 30 days or more old. But this seems to move everything.

    Can anybody explain why this is happening? Is it because i used a wildcard on files, will that not look at the file age?

    Thanks!
