If you're only running that every month, the list will increase - the
day before the command is run you'll have 40 days of purgeable files
sitting there. Run the command daily or weekly. Note also that ToolBox
won't purge more than 15 directories deep - if the directory structure
is deeper than that it will miss files.

As an alternative, you may want to look at a purge utility I wrote:
