[Request] schedule deletion of logs


Recommended Posts

I have searched and right now we are set up to delete all by the click of a button ..How ever i was wondering if there was a script that would enable us to schedule this task ? Because it would also eliminate the need for a restart script since the "game application/server" reboots when the logs get deleted .


All and any help in this matter is greatly appreciated .


Thank you .

They said they were already setup to delete log files just not on a schedule and the answer for that is Windows task scheduler. TcAdmin doesn't have a task scheduler built into it, and there realy isn't any need for one iether. As for deleting files I use the following script, altering the location as pertinent.

Option Explicit
Dim fso
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
DeleteFiles fso.GetFolder("C:\userfiles\rugunno\tc.......")
Sub DeleteFiles(srcFolder)
Dim srcFile
If srcFolder.Files.Count = 0 Then
Exit Sub
End If
For Each srcFile in srcFolder.Files
If DateDiff("d", Now, srcFile.DateCreated) < -30 Then
fso.DeleteFile srcFile, True
End If
End Sub


This script also utilizes a time delay allowing me to have log rotation, and if I don't wish to retain any logs I just set the time delay to nothing.
