Automatically delete files based on last accessed time
Posted on 2011-03-01
I'm looking for a way to automatically delete files from our SAN based on last accessed time. SAN vendor doesn't have a method to do this but suggested a program called Delete Files by Date Software. I attempted to test this software but they don't offer any trial period, you can download and view files but in order to test it's functionality you must purchase a license, so while I was uninstalling that waste of time I decided to ask the experts.
I had also tried a program called Delenda, which seems to do what I want but doesn't seem to work. I pointed it at a directory (12k files, 3.5GB) and let it run for 24 hours with no progress.
So what I need is a decent program that can run automatically (as a service preferably) that can delete files based on their last accessed time.
