    Hi,

    I’m running this script, but it does not work.
    I tried to change @path to D:Logs_Archive but it still does not work.

    What am I missing?

    D:scriptsLogRotationMM>psexec \192.168.1.2 forfiles -p “D:Logs_Archive” -s -m *.rar /D -7 /C “cmd /c del @path”

    PsExec v2.2 – Execute processes remotely
    Copyright (C) 2001-2016 Mark Russinovich
    Sysinternals – http://www.sysinternals.com

    ERROR: Invalid argument/option – ‘@path’.
    Type “FORFILES /?” for usage.
    forfiles exited on 192.168.1.2 with error code 1.

    Your help is appreciated.

    Thanks
