I am using automator to move all finder items in a location to trash if their last date modified is after 2 weeks from today.
The workflow is as follows:
Get Specified Finder Items (an external hard drive) - works well
Get Folder Contents (repeat for each subfolder found) - works well
Filter Finder Items (all that are not a folder) - works well
Filter Finder Items (all whose date modified is not in the last 2 weeks) - DOES NOT WORK This passes all the items to the next process without any being filtered
Move Finder Items to Trash - works well
I am able to make this workflow work correctly if the condition for the Filter is set to "All items whose date modified is after a specific date". Here, I manually input the date which is 14 days before today.
Can anyone explain why these two functions cause the filter to behave differently when they are essentially the exact same thing?
I want to have the 2 week condition so that I can run the workflow without having to edit it every time.
