script to delete files

Jump to solution

I received script from TAC to delete temp files from the tmp directory , but the script runs forever and it does not delete the files .

I am not sure if the script is correct .Can anyone check this script if it is correct?

It looks the rm-f $file is in echo

 

 for file in *; do file_size=$(du $file | awk '{print $1}'); if [ $file_size == 0 ]; then echo "Deleting empty file $file with file size $file_size!"; echo "rm -f $file"; fi;done

hey,

 

Script is fine (but is incomplete, there is missing a part from the beginning), it's just returning what you need to remove - there the echo.

Not sure if that is the purpose, and you should go over the RM lines and see if you are OK to remove those files or not.

 

Thank you,
