Get rid of old files

Recommended Posts

Hey guys ! Lately, i've been finding my self to always delete files cause my mac has low space. It's time consuming, i have to go in finder, sort by size, or by date, select file and then send it to  trash. 

I tried to create a workflow based on the "get rid of dmg files" it goes like this : 

- keyword >>> Folder content automation (path is in my download files >> Matching argument and.. it fails. Basically i can match by arguments like \.mp4$ or wav or mkv and then send the files to trash but it's not exactly what i want to do. 
What i want to do is : get files who are matching my extension :(e.g : \.dmg$, \.avi$...) sort them by date : if they are older than 1 year : send them to trash, if not label them.

I tried with a lot of automation and playing with dynamic place holder {datetime -1y} but it dont seem to work. 

Would it be possible without using anykind of script ? 

Thanks to everyone who answer
