    Hi I have a folder where I store backup files, can I use SFK to delete the older files from this directory, keeping, for example, the 7 most recent?

    This gives me the list of files in the folder,
        sfk list -old Backups
    I want to keep the first 7 and delete all the rest. Seems it should be possible, any suggestions?

    Thanks

    (And thanks to StahlWorks for a great tool!!!)

    sfk list -before 30d Backups

    lists all files older than 30 days within Backups. So you may add +del to delete them, or use

    sfk delete -before 30d Backups
    

    in one step. However to delete all files except the most recent n files isn't possible directly or it may require a complex workaround.
