Greetings Anonymous Monk

Your question is a bit vague...

What do you mean by "file" and "database" ?

On most UNIX machines you can delete files that are londer than a certain time w/ something like:

find /tmp -type f -mtime +20 | xargs rm

On MS windows you can use the find command to locate files older than a certain time & then select them and delete them.
