rclone delete

rclone delete

Remove the contents of path.


Remove the contents of path. Unlike purge it obeys include/exclude filters so can be used to selectively delete files.

Eg delete all files bigger than 100MBytes

Check what would be deleted first (use either)

rclone --min-size 100M lsl remote:path
rclone --dry-run --min-size 100M delete remote:path

Then delete

rclone --min-size 100M delete remote:path

That reads “delete everything with a minimum size of 100 MB”, hence delete all files bigger than 100MBytes.
