This is the next part to it Smile

so it will check the users home directory attribute, browse the directory for files that have not been accessed in 30 days and then create a report and send an email to the user…


going to add in the next few days, some control logic for errors etc… in the next few days…. so what out for an update…

comments welcome on how to make it better…
