Below shell script will find and delete certain file or multiple files from the directory you want. We have used current directory from where script is run, you need to change DIR_TO_SEARCH and FILE_TO_SEARCH_N_DEL from below script.
$ vim script_to_find_and_delete_file.sh
#!/bin/bash DIR_TO_SEARCH=$PWD FILE_TO_SEARCH_N_DEL=testing.txt for file in $(find $DIR_TO_SEARCH -name $FILE_TO_SEARCH_N_DEL) do echo "deleting $file" rm -rf $file done
In above script, you can change “DIR_to_SEARCH” to point to your directory where you need to search file and “FILE_TO_SEARCH_N_DEL” to name of the file which you want to delete.
$ cd to_your_directory
$ bash script_to_find_and_delete_file.sh
