Download cleanold

load cleanold <path> [/DM=days | /DA=days] [/L=<path to log file>] [/OW] [/sys]

Where:

<path> is the directory path you want to clean. If the path contains
spaces, enclose the path in qoutes. eg “data:user dirs”

/DM=days – specifies the number of days worth of modified files to save. eg, to delete anything not modified in the last 15 days use /DM=15

/DA=days – specifies the number of days worth of accessed files to save. eg, to delete anything not accessed in the last 100 days use /DA=100

/DC=days – specifies the number of days worth of created files to save. eg, to delete anything not created in the last 100 days use /DC=100

/L=<path to logfile> – specifies where to write the log file if desired.

/OW – Overwrite the logfile instead of appending

/EMPTY – Delete any empty directories in the path

/sys is an override to allow cleaning the sys volume. By default cleanold will not allow cleaning the sys: volume.

    This will help us keep temporary storage areas clean by running this from a cron script. The only issue I notice so far is that the /EMPTY parameter is not mentioned in the text file that comes with the utility.

      Conrake,

      Glad it’s going to be of use to you. Thanks for pointing out the documentation omission, I’ve corrected that and sent CoolSoultions and updated file.
