How can I delete these files w/o removing the folder itself?

Is this an exercise? What's wrong with "rm -rf .thumbnails/ large"
followed by "mkdir .thumbnails/large"?

It can occur that I have to delete only files with a similar
pattern, eg 'rm aaaaa*'. In this case I can't delete the whole
directory.


The names of the files in that directory are senseless, they don't give a clue as to what they are:

So go ahead, find a pattern of what you want to delete / not delete...

:-P
