    Technical Description:

    This script will remove agentless deployment files and patches older than the date specified (default 180 days) from the vCenter Protect console machine.  This allows a vCenter Protect administrator to run and schedule cleanup on the console machine to keep the disk usage over time at a manageable size.  The script determines the OS of the console and proceeds to read the STEnvironment.Config file to determine the data files directory.  Then the script removes items in Patches and the Install folders that are older than the date specified.  OpsMon will pretty much return a Completed: Success message on this script.  The script runs locally so there is little chance of failure.
