    Difference between Now and the Timestamp on a File


    If someone could provide a few tips on computing the difference
    between now and the timestamp on a file that's be great.

    I'm writing a VBScript that sends an email if a file is older than
    hour old.

    Thanks.

    filename = "whatever"
    diffInMinutes = datediff("N",fso.GetFile(filename).DateLastModified,Now)

    returns the time in minutes between Now and the last file modification.
