If you're afraid of filling your disk, just toss the output to /dev/null during the command invocation ;)

I highly recommend this command, we use this on daily basis instead of 3rd party tools.


Thanks for sharing Loik! I’ll definitely check it out!


If I may ask how do you handle killing the process?
