I have a server that has hundreds of thousands of files that have been created over the years. I was trying to do some house cleaning and ran into this issue where I didnt know how to do a bulk delete without either writing a script or using the interface.
After spending some time trying to find a simple way to do this, I started looking on Google.com for ideas. It wasnt long till I made up my mind to use a MS-DOS script to delete files older than a certain age from all my older directories and sub directories.
Finally, the script that worked for me based on results from Google was
forfiles -p "C:\what\ever" -s -m *.* -d <number of days> -c "cmd /c del @path"
I found it on this post/page
Hope it saves you time.
I found that the script was not reliable enough, I found a better way of doing it as outlined under
This will delete files from <SOME FOLDER>
that are more than 120 days old
forfiles /p "<SOME FOLDER>" /s /m "*.jpg" /c "cmd /c del @path " /d -120
