I've answered this in another thread, but in just case someone see this:
to be able to delete old data, you need to be able to define what data
that counts as old, and this has to be done per table basis. This is not
something you can do generically. SQL Server does not know itself how
new or old some data is; that information would have to be in the data
itself.

Hi All I'm using .getRows() with a local var array instead of doing a recursive loop so that I'm being a good ASP newvbie and closing my object i/o's (the recordset in this case) as quick as possible. My problem is that I can't seem to use this to complete good effect because the IsArray statement doesn't seem to work with a local var array that has or has not been populated with the .getRows() property.

We have a multithreaded program that uses new and delete. We have not over-ridden these operators. We're currently experiencing leaking for the program.

This seems like a big problem, but the issues we are having (threads not purging...
