[Help] Delete last file ordered by name

Hi all,

I need to create a process that will list all file names inside a folder and then delete only the last file in this list (ordered by descending name).
I found a snippet online and I think it can be useful.
How can I change the fact that this snippet use the creation time instead of the name sorted by descending?

Thank you in advantage :slight_smile:

Hi @alinghi100,
You could use PowerShell script for this:

$path = "(path to folder)"
ls $path | sort-object -Property {$_.Name} | Select-Object -Last "1" | Remove-Item -force


Directory.GetFiles(PathOfYourFolder).OrderByDescending(function(x) Path.GetFileName(x)).last

can use this in Delete activity
