2013-08-16 1 min read bash Fedora Linux
I think, like me, you would have faced a lot of situations, where you wanted to delete all the files or directories in a location, leaving only the required files/directories.

First save list of files that you do not want to delete in file called “listnames” and then execute the below script. Continue reading

If you have a lot of CPU power and working on battery. If you do not need that much of power and would like to rather save some battery power by disabling some cpus then you can use the below script.
