I would love to see something that makes deleting files aged by x days so shared areas could be easily maintained.
TCC already has this; type HELP DATERANGES for details. (Ranges can be used in any of the internal file-handling commands, not just DIR.)

Code:
@echo off
*setlocal
*unalias *
 
set n=14
 
alias purge=`if .%1 ne . if isdir %1 pushd %1 && ( del /[dc-%n,1980-01-01] /s /e /x /y /z * %+ popd )`
 
purge "%systemroot\temp"
purge "%temp"
 
endlocal

It may be that looking at date ranges will help you do exactly what you
want.
