For Each oFol IN oSQLBackupFol.SubFolders
  For Each oFil in oFol.Files
       If oFil.DateCreated < Now-1 Then
             'If you want to make sure it's a .bak or .trn file, check oFil.Name, otherwise
             'This will delete anything more than a day old in the directory
             'all first level subdirectories.  (Recursion is left as an exercise for the reader)
        End If
