Default Script to delete files after a set number

Hello to all. I am trying to create a script that will delete files in a folder after the file count reaches a specific number, say, 7.

This is what I have written:

Option Explicit
Dim fso
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
DeleteFiles fso.GetFolder("C:\Test")
Sub DeleteFiles(srcFolder)
Dim srcFile
If srcFolder.Files.Count > 7 Then
Exit Sub
End If
End Sub

I know it is wrong as it returns error messages. Could someone help me with this script? Also, could you recommend a good book or website which would helpd me going forward?

Have a look at this article: http://www.aivosto.com/visdev/fso.html

The last bit "The File Object" will answer your question. The rest of the article is also good stuff.
