Code in Place 2020 Final Project: Clean Yo Folders!

by Jan P


After completing Assignment 3 for Code in Place 2020, I ran into the problem of figuring out what on earth I would do for the Final Project. To procrastinate even thinking about ideas, I started to go through my folders on my laptop -- a bothersome task that involves going through all the folders and seeing if the files are needed anymore. That's when it hit me! Python can do this! I present Clean Yo Laptop! A python program that searches all your folders with a given base directory, returns all old files with a given "minimum age" for last opened, and helps you delete them too!
