[ic] need help clearing tmp and session folders

I ran the tmp folder command and I still see tons of sub folders with file
in them. I did however see some files get deleted from the directory but it
happened fairly quickly and I assume 275 megs may take a bit to delete.
Should this command be recursive to get all the subs as well?

Also, sorry if this is a silly question but what is the command from a
prompt to see the size of a folder including its contents? So I can see if
this is working as I try stuff.

Thanks for the newbie understanding

Here is a good start:

I do something like so using crontab:

01 2 * * * su -c "/usr/lib/interchange/bin/expireall -r" interch
45 3 * * * find /dirr/yourdir/interchange/locks/tmp -mtime +2 -type f |
rm -fv
44 4 * * * find /dirr/yourdir/interchange/locks/session -mtime +2 -type f |
xargs rm -fv
