there is no "a week worth of computation" . There is me "find . -delete" ing like 50k files in a minute and killing the process , whenever i find the server load low enough , in course of a week .

@artistoex How come ? find is slower because it is going through the inode metadata of the folder , which is huge , even if the folder is emptied
