What it actually is, is that the 450,000+ files are fax images, it used to be cleaned once a week when it ran on OS/2. When they converted the system to NT, they failed to implement a purge.
We now need to rectify that.

    Get an NT find and:
    find /image_dir -c +7d -exec rm {} \;

      you can use unix command find like this
      find . -mtime +84 -exec rm -f {} \;
      ashok
        -mtime or -ctime (that's what I meant ;-), there's was some discussion about how NT handles/uses mtime/atime/ctime and, of course, you'd probably want "-exec del {} \;" unless an 'rm' came w/ the NT 'find' package (cygnus, MKutil, perl -e 'unlink shift', ????).
