Hi,

let’s say we have a Linux file server (samba) and the users insist in keep adding mp3 files into it. With the following command (and I suggest you adding the script to your crontab) we can remove all the occurrences of mp3/MP3 files everyday without doing it manually.

#find /home -type f -iname "*.mp3" -exec rm -fv {} \;

Where “find /home” will search recursively in your home directory, looking for “files” only (-type f) for the all the files containing the last characters as “mp3 or MP3” and then it will remove all these results (rm -fv).
