Congrats on a developing a very useful task. I'll be hitting this problem
soon when I set up a continuous build.

Have you tried using this \ would this work on directories. We also build
nightly and every now and then a build fails when the disk in full.

If it doesn't work on directories it would be nice if it did. I don't have
time at the moment myself to look into this but will get to it eventually.
If I do need to make changes to get it working with directories I'll send
you any updates.

Just wanted to thank every one who chipped in with ideas for solving 
this problem.  It was a huge help in digging around Ant trying to find a 
good way to "purge" old files.

In the end, I've build a task to do the job.  It's available here:

Comments, bug reports, suggestions... always welcome.

If we find related uses for the components of this task, then maybe that 
would be a good time to think about refactoring it into something more 

Thanks again
