I'm wondering if it's possible to pass find results to an rclone delete command.
For example, I have the following command to list certain files: find ./ -name 'search_term*' -type f ! -newer /tmp/mytime
This finds files in the current folder with a name including search_term that's older than a specified file. Works great.
When I add | xargs rm -rf to delete those files, the operation just hangs forever.
So I wonder if I could pass the results to an rclone delete command, like this: find ./ -name 'search_term*' -type f ! -newer /tmp/mytime | rclone delete remote:
where the remote path(s) are the results returned from the find command.
You could use find to create an intermediate file with the results. And then use the '--include-from' as part of a delete command.
You could also think about changing your processing to just use rclone instead. that is, read the time from /tmp/mytime, calculate the difference in seconds or some number, and then use rclone to natively do the search.
rclone delete -include=search_term** --min-age x --max-age y etc
