I’m attempting to delete some directories and I want to be able to exclude a directory called ‘logs’ from being deleted.
This is my basic find operation (without the exclusion)
# find . -type d |tail -10
I’m just tailing the output so that you have an idea of what’s going on without taking up the whole page. :)
If I try to exlclude the logs directory with the prune command I get back no results.
root@ops-manager:/tmp/tmp# find . -type d -prune -o -name ‘logs’ -print root@ops-manager:/tmp#
What am I doing wrong?
