Do you have anyway to run a report that lists file age (i.e. creation date and/or last modified date)?

in Reports

The reports “Only Files” and “Folders and Files” show modified date. Moreover an advanced option allows you to use modified time as “later” of create and modified time making it even more useful.

Other useful report from this point of view is the Active Folders report which allows you to see how much activity occurred in the folders by Size Modified and Number of Files Modified in last so many days.

We used to have a report “Unused Files” but we had to remove it starting from Windows Vista as Vista or Windows 7 does not support that feature of maintaining Last Used date of files. You can see this report on earlier Windows systems but with a warning about volumes shared with Vista computers. See more details in this article.
