Quickly and safely thin out a backups directory that's taking up too much hard disk space!
thin_out_backups will keep the specified number of backups in each frequency category (weekly,
daily, etc.) and delete the rest, keep the space requirements of your backups directory fairly
constant over time.
The files that you are thinning out don't have to be backups, but that is probably the most common use case.
$ gem install thin_out_backups
