Hi

I have script to remove files but it can't work in
directory


ls *log | sort -r | sed -e 1,1d | xargs rm -f

those folders are:

Nov28-log
Nov29-log
Nov30-log


The problem is that you're getting things like "Nov28-log:" back, with
the trailing colon. Try this:
   ls -1d *log | xargs rm -Rf
Note that the first option is a one, not an el.
