    $ touch -d "Jan 1 2007" file.start
    $ touch -d "Mar 1 2007" file.end
    $ find / -daystart -newer file.start \! -daystart -newer file.end -exec rm {} \;

    You should probably test that excluding the -exec rm {} \;
    first as I didn't...

    Those are commands, you're supposed to type them into your ssh window.
