Ah. Could you setup a cron job to manually "expire" (aka, delete) the old files?

    i could. i'm trying to delete them now, but i can't believe i've forgotten the gnu `find` syntax for the -exec args.

    just trying to get rid of some of them NOW ...

      find -daystart -mtime +1 -exec rm -rf \{\} \;
      ...will delete any files over a day old (from the start of today).
        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.
