Find and delete all files containing a specific word

If you’re like me, you can accumulate thousands of files on your computer (duplicates, renamed or whatever) … keeping track, managing, deleting can become a nightmare. If you have a Linux based computer you can easily manage your files using SSH.

So here’s the solution to find and delete all files containing a specific word within the filename?

Whether it’s a Mac or a Linux Server use an SSH program like Terminal or Putty to access the folder you want to manage your files in.

To find all files with ‘X’ word in filename

e.g. find all files IF they contain the word DELETE in them here is the Linux command:

find . -name \*DELETE\*.* -type f

To find and remove all files with ‘X’ word in filename

e.g. find all files and delete IF they contain the word DELETE in them here is the same Linux command with the remove element added in.

find . -name \*DELETE\*.* -type f -exec rm {} \;

Creative Blog Writing Service

Writing posts for your news or blog section on your web site can be intimidating.  Even if you have and idea for or written your post you may be time poor; or you haven’t got the expertise to set it up in your blog (such as WordPress).

Of course you need:

  1. An idea to write about
  2. An image that suits the story
  3. To correctly tag and keyword optimise your post
  4. Some links to pages in your site or external site
  5. To share your post on your social media

For some it’s all too hard and that’s why my company DISKMANdotNet has partnered with IntelReach to provide a great Creative Blog Writing service for our clients.

For a small fee per month, the blogging service can organise your blog or news section with minimal input from the client.

All the client has to do is provide a 200-400 word (or longer) story or piece for the blog and IntelReach will do the rest:

  • Spell check, grammar check and format to a blog post
  • Insert hyperlinks back to the client’s website based on their key words and their priorities
  • Choose a relevant picture (people love pictures)
  • Categorise, tag, and post to the blog
  • Submit to the client’s social media (at least twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn)
