Have you used the LQ search facility?

I'm sure I've seen similar threads (lots of them in fact)

use find

find /path/I/want/to/search -type f -mmin +60 -exec rm {} \;
I would first suggest running the search part alone (to ensure that you are getting the correct list of files to be deleted!

find /path/I/want/to/search -type f -mmin +60

This will work as well:
find /path/I/want/to/search -type f -mmin +60 -delete

Be sure to use "-type f" because it will delete other filetypes.
