10.4: Use Automator to remove older files from a folder
Authored by: johnemac on Aug 24, '06 05:45:40AM

Is there a way to run this as a shell script on older machines? I would like to use something like this on a G4 running 10.3.4. I don't think 10.3 includes Automator.

I've posted a shell script in the forums that basically wraps the "find" command and does the same thing as above (plus provides you a log file of deleted files). Here's the link: http://forums.macosxhints.com/showthread.php?t=25953

As stated above (and in the forum) - this is potentially a very destructive command to play with - be careful.
