Delete files older than a year, a month, a week…

Recently I need to purge my Backup Disk to release new available space. I found this command to delete files older than 364 days. You can change this value to the one you need.

find -maxdepth 1 -mtime +364 *-exec rm -f {} \;

  1. I think that the command is not properly rendered. It should be

    find -maxdepth 1 -mtime +364 * -exec rm -f '{}' \;
