Using the ‘forfiles.exe’ to manage log files

Here is a good tip I received in the IIS newgroups managing log files.   Thanks ‘Tomek’ for passing this along.


1) Create – BAT-File (in the same Path like forfiles.exe)
2) forfiles.exe – syntax


forfiles – pC:pathtolog-files – s -m*.* -d-60 -c”cmd /C del /q @FILE”


-m : defines the Filename and extension
-d : the age of the Files in days
-c : command to run (in our case – delete)

I attended a .NET user group in my area (GLUGnet) – http://www.glugnet.org and wanted to get involved.  I accepted the GLUGnet Membership Director position.  This is a volunteer position.  Hopefully, I can do a good job making the user group better!   I received lots of tips from various people thanks a lot..

    Local .NET user groups – attend one!

    I attended two local user groups this week.  West Michigan .NET user group (http://www.grdotnet.org) and GLUG – Greater Lansing user group (http://www.glugnet.org/ ).  It has been a while since I attended a user group meeting but this is a real jewel to network with people who are “geeks” and learn too.  I plan on helping as much as I can, I am not sure where to start. 🙂  If you have any tips or tricks in having a successful user group. Let me know either by replying here or contact me at steve@orcsweb.com

    Show friendly display name in the “FROM” and “TO” fields using CDOSYS

    I was trying to find an example that would display a “Friendly name” vs. an “email address” when generating emails using CDOSYS.   Here is the code to do this.


                 Set imsg = Createobject(“cdo.message”)

    With iMsg


       .To = “John Monday <firstname@changethistoyouremail.com>”


       .From = “Steve Friday <me@changethistoyouremail.com>”


       .Subject = “A Subject Line: ” & Now()


       .TextBody = “A Text body message”


    .Send


    End With


    Set imsg = nothing
