RE: remove old files from dictory



Creative use of "find" will do this type of thing for you.

Example: Remove files that haven't been modified in more than 30 days:
find /somedir \( -type f -a -mtime +30 \) -exec rm -f {} \;

 OS redhat 9.0
 I have a huge direcory (more than 30 GB) I want to take all the files
and
 sub-dirctries which are created more than 
 two year ago out of the dicctory. Does anyone have a script to do this
 kind of work?
