Delete files from SFTP older than 4 days

Hi I am trying to script a file that task scheduler can run every day that deletes files older than 4 days old.

So that files will stay on the sftp for 4 days then fall off basically.

Can you do this with a script that can be ran through a batch file?

Thank you

Sorry to drag up an old topic but I tried
rm *<30D
expecting to be only left with file less than a month old(ish)
Whilst it deleted many old files I am not left with the range I was expecting.
I am left with files older than 30days.
Any ideas?
Thanks

Please attach a full session log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP). Name a specific file that your expected to be deleted, but was not.

To generate the session log file, use /log=path_to_log_file command-line argument. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you can mark the attachment as private.
