I made a script that backups my work every day in a ZIP file to a file server in a specific folder.
But I would need to keep only the 30 most recent ZIP files in that folder.
Could someone help me in the construction of the “stage” of this script that will delete the oldest files to keep only the 30 most recent ones?
Thanks a lot in advance for the help…
Here is my first draft to do this… But it doen’t work…
set counterVariable to 0
set stopValue to 30
set stepValue to -1
set DossierSauvegarde to alias "Macintosh HD:Users:andrew:Documents:Scripts:"
tell application "Finder" to set ListeFichiers to sort (every item of DossierSauvegarde whose name extension is "scpt") by creation date -- most recent first
set startValue to count items in ListeFichiers
if startValue â‰¥ 30 then
repeat with counterVariable from startValue to stopValue by stepValue
set theFile to item -1 of ListeFichiers
set theinfo to creation date of (info for theFile as alias) as text
tell application "Finder"
delete DossierSauvegarde & theFile
