Is there a way to delete all files or files that match a pattern that are xx days old or older?

Thanks,
DV

Well, if you are in a hurry to delete those files, you can also use the new FolderSize plugin posted on the Beta forum ( http://www.watchdirectory.net/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?board=betabeta ). It also has the option to trigger for old files. However, when 4.1 is released (a free upgrade for all customers, by the way), I think I will remove the 2 "age settings" from the foldersize plugin as their function is obsolete (or rather, redundant)  when WD itself can scan for old files.

The beta version 4.1 is now available and includes the File Age monitoring method:
http://www.watchdirectory.net/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1157272493

The File Age monitoring method allows a task (for example, Automatically Delete Files) to run for files of a certain age (30 days old).
