    Well, I'm not native English speaker and it's not quite clear to me what means "remove 7 days back files" - files older than 7 days, or files created during the last 7 days? OK, one will "only" change the sign of mtime argument (and better do it before running find with -exec rm...) I'd also like to mention -mmin parameter to find: granularity will increase from days (mtime, ctime) to minutes ( mmin, cmin) Good luck, Petko A.
