Server :: Script To Delete Files Older Than X Days Fstab Has Noatime Enabled?

Jul 26, 2011

I have set up a simple find and delete script for files older than X days. The problem is that some of the files that are send in this share are transfered from an archive server and creation/modified date remains the same when copied and the age of them could be a year ago or older and they get deleted over night by the script.For performance reasons the raid is mounted with noatime in fstab.Do you see any solution to this problem except enabling atime?I'm thinking at some more advanced script that writes the list of added files once a day and marks them for deletion after some time.

General :: Command To Copy Files Older Than <n> Days Keeping Dir Structure?

Jul 6, 2010

I'm trying to truncate a postfix Maildata directory for one of our users. I want to be able to move any files older than <n> days to a new location, but also copying the relevant directory structure. This should be doable in the one comman. I've used find to locate the files, and mv to move them, but I can't figure out how to build the directoryt structure on the fly in the new location.

This is what I have so far:

Code:
find /Maildata/editor -mtime +42 -type f -exec mv -v {} /EditorEmailOld/ ; > ~/editor.txt

General :: Find Directory Older Than X And Mv Directory With Sub Files Command?

Jul 13, 2011

I'm quite new to linux but I have configured a simple ftp server and it's working great. I have a FTP-Shared folder with upload and download subfolders. Under upload's and download's I have identical category subfolders like mp3's, movies, software etc. in both. As the guy's upload, I would like to create a line crontab where I can move all the content under /FTP-Shared/upload/mp3/* older than 14 day's to FTP-Shared/downloads/mp3/ recursively (Like in cp command), but the timestamp must be searched on the first directory and not sub files example: /mp3/Club Dance/CD1/Hallo world.mp3This is how far I got:[root@clients ~]# /usr/bin/find /FTP_Shared/upload/Mp3s/ -depth -mindepth 1 -mtime +14 -type d -exec mv -f {} /FTP_Shared/download/Mp3s/ ;This command moves the directory and files, but it is not recursively

General :: Delete The Parent Directory With Rm -rf?

May 15, 2011

I have a FAT32 SD card with a file on it, that, viewed in Windows the filename consists of a long string of nonsense. Viewed in my Android phone's Linux terminal, ls -a shows nothing in the directory. When I try to delete the parent directory with rm -rf deleteme, it fails with "Directory not empty". When I try to delete/move in Windows 7, it says the filename would be too long and/or Explorer crashes. Windows disk check doesn't find anything wrong. How can I delete this?

Ubuntu :: Server Directory Can't Delete Directory / Fix This?

Jul 9, 2011

Ubuntu server recently had issues with a disk. fsck seemed to correct everything, but I have one directory that I can't delete, chown, chgrp, chmod, etc.

Here's the listing for the directory
dr-x-wxrwt 2 16709 25134 8192 2020-08-23 22:34 UDLEDATB.DBF

Note the sticky bit is set and the uid is a number that does not appear in /etc/passwd.

Even as root, any attempt to delete, chmod, chown, etc. gives "Operation not permitted".

Since sticky bit on a directory restricts delete to the owner and the owner is invalid, I am stuck. I need to delete this directory.

How can I fix this?
