Windows 7 Ult. x64

Your assuming too much....look at the thread title : Move Files older than 365 Days

Anyway, your making something out of an old thread thats marked as solved, so why don't you move on.

Yup saw the title. This is why I came to this thread from the Google search. Maxage is not the right switch to move files other than 1 year. If the switch excludes those files then they are not part of the eligible files to be moved. Again, try the command yourself. I've asked you twice already but you seem to be ducking me and throwing red herrings my way. Ego in the way?

Seems you rather defend a wrong answer than admit you gave advice that was slightly off. We all make mistakes, nothing wrong with that.

I came to this via a google search today as I was really struggling with copying data older than x days. Thank you both Golden for the original solution and for SaxxyLady for the /minage clarification.

Just got here by a Google search as well--sunk818 is correct, MINAGE is the correct parameter.
