[Ubuntu][rclone][Google-drive] Delete files older than 7 days in the directory

I have a lot of files on my google drive. I would like to delete files older than 7 days in the directory.

Is there any way to do this?

I will be grateful for the support. Thanks :grinning:


rclone delete remote:dir --min-age 8d -v --dry-run

@igor_andreev- it works :grinning:

Option at the end --dry-run is only for preview reason, so If you are sure to delete files use:

rclone delete remote:dir --min-age 8d -v

Thank you :slight_smile:

Yep. Before launching potentially destructive commands(delete, sync etc.), it is always better to check them with the --dry-run.

@igor_andreev, thanks for clarification.

Could you advise if there is any possibility to permamently remove files without trash?

Google Drive?
Look at "Deleting files"(--drive-use-trash=false) or " Emptying trash". Rclone has a very good manual...

@igor_andreev, I am learning Ubuntu recently, so my knolowledge needs to be improved, especially how to read manuals :slight_smile:

Thanks a lot for your effort.
