    It is useful - learning new stuff is always good and I'd never noticed that log parser can query a file system!

    Set oWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & sComputer & "\root\cimv2")
    set colItems = oWMIService.ExecQuery("select * from CIM_Datafile where drive='C:'")
    for each item in ColItems
      if len(item.filename)>6 then
        wscript.echo item.name, item.FileName
      end if
    Could you not do something like this where you have a variable and an inputbox and get it to prompt for how long you want the path for and where drive='C:'" etc use the vbscript browse folder option

    VBScript Scripting Techniques: Browse Folder Dialog

    That way you don't have to keep changing the Drive='C:'" etc it will just prompt for length and give you a browse window to browse and select where you want to scan
