    Shouldn't that be:
    find . -daystart -mtime +1 -exec rm -rf \{\} \;

    Otherwise, you're starting in the '-daystart' directory within the CWD. :-)

    Being right, does not endow the right to be rude; politeness costs nothing.
    Being unknowing, is not the same as being stupid.
    Expressing a contrary opinion, whether to the individual or the group, is more often a sign of deeper thought than of cantankerous belligerence.
    Do not mistake your goals as the only goals; your opinion as the only opinion; your confidence as correctness. Saying you know better is not the same as explaining you know better.

      Nope, find recogizes that -daystart is a switch and defaults to the CWD. : ) Although you're right if you judge on the basis of clarity and caution; I probably should have included the ".".
