in thread Find files older than x days and delete them

I use it b/c there are several file types that I'm looking for, and I need a log. Windows Find doesn't log, and I'm not sure that you can search out multiple file types. Plus, I'm lazy. I like one click.

    Actually, you can do both.

    To search for multiple file types, type something like '*.bat;*.html' in the search box.

    To save the search critera, click File|Save Search. To save the results of the search, make sure that Options|Save Results is checked, then click File|Save Search.

    There may be a way to save the results as a text file, but I'm not aware of it. I usually just cut'n'paste if I need something like that.
