A Windows batch script to delete backup files from a folder

I need a Windows batch script which goes through the content of one folder and removes all files which meet all the following criteria:

- the file name is in the following format: [login to view URL] (where YYYYMMDD denotes a date)

- the file is older than 15 days (the file creation or modification date can be taken or also the YYYYMMDD part of the file name can be used)

- DD is not "01" in the filename (so basically files having a name of [login to view URL] should not be deleted).

Originally I had the following operation but this one does not support the last requirement. So this line needs to be rewritten.

forfiles /p "C:\DB Backup\SCM-TEST" /m SCM-TEST????????.bak /D -15 /C "cmd /c del @path"
