Subject: rotating old files with rsync

Hi all,

is there a way to rotate files older than 365 days (1 year) with rsync?

i've found this on the internet

find /home/nkumar/eur/ -type f -mtime +7 -printf %P\\0 | rsync --files-from=- --from0 /home/nkumar/eur/ /home/nkumar/chk/ --remove-sent-files

but i guess it will not work on eCS/AOS

any idea?

at the moment i'm using a rexx that moves files older than 1year to a 2nd partition
but when this server will be moved inside a VM i can't use anymore this procedure
since i don't want the VM size to grow too much

what i'd need is to use rsync from another server (on bare metal) that moves older
than 1 year files to a removable drive

thanks for any suggestion
