Find and remove files#


Be very careful. You can delete your entire hard disk way too easily.

Linux or UNIX - Find and remove file syntax#

To remove multiple files such as *.jpg or *.sh with one command find, use

find . -name "FILE-TO-FIND"-exec rm -rf {} \;
find . -type f -name "FILE-TO-FIND" -exec rm -f {} \;
The only difference between above two syntax is that first command can remove directories as well where second command only removes files.

More Examples of find command#

(a) Find all files having .bak (*.bak) extension in current directory and remove them:

 find . -type f -name "*.bak" -exec rm -f {} \;
(b) Find all core files and remove them:
find / -name core -exec rm -f {} \;
(c) Find all *.bak files in current directory and removes them with confirmation from user:
find . -type f -name "*.bak" -exec rm -i {} \;

Delete specific Folders#

Delete all files and the folder "thumbs"
rm -ri `find . -type d -name "thumbs"`
