I work for a video production company and I have a Windows 10 machine. Is there a way for me to find all of my video files that are less than 30 minutes in length? I need to delete the majority of them. How can I do that?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Open file explorer and search for that file extension. In the returned set, see if you have a column with the video length. IF so click on the column heading to sort by the time. If the length is not there, right click in the heading area and you can add additional columns to this list.

    What you can do, open file explorer, open the folder where the all videos files are. Now right click on any column and it shows many choices, here you can select Length and then it shows the all files with duration. From here you can select one by one. However if there are so many files less than 30 minutes, then the job is tedious. Or you can download/install Ultra file search (a small tool) that may help you a lot.

    One more thing you can try, Open File explorer, on right most corner, where Search bar appearing, just write like this, kind=video, length: after typing this (this is not case sensitive), there are several options as shown as pop-up, you can select any one which one is suitable for your needs.
