I want to maintain current date files

Delete all Files in C:\temp older than Current day(s)

$Path = "E:\Testing\Order\123456"

$CurrentDate = Get-Date

Get-ChildItem $Path | Where-Object { $_.LastWriteTime -lt $CurrentDate } | Remove-Item

I am trying to run this script but it is deleting every thing. It is not maintain current date files. Is there any modification please suggesting me sir.


Make sure you get the file extensions right if they have any.

Get-ChildItem -Path C:\folder1\data -Include * -Exclude text.1, folder1 -Recurse | foreach { $_.Delete()}

<em>Edit to answer the comment:</em>

So you want to delete all files and folders in C:\folder1 except of files text.1 and folder.1 in data, other and alpha? It means you cannot remove these 3 folders too so they have to be excluded.

Get-ChildItem -Path C:\folder1\ -Include * -Exclude text.1, folder.1, alpha, data, other -Recurse | foreach { $_.FullName}

try this (and dont stay into your dir when you try) :

Get-ChildItem "C:\folder1\data\*" -Recurse | where Name -notin ('text.1', 'folder.1') | Remove-Item -Force -Recurse
