It is not easy to delete only PDF files older than 90 days, and you need a script to do that with PowerShell. You can find the script to delete PDFs older than 90 days from this link. It is a complicated script, and you should pay more attention to avoid unnecessary data loss.

You can easily delete PDF files older than 90 days using File Explorer. You just open File Explorer and filter the files older than 90 days, choose PDF files and delete them. It is a manual way, but it is super simple for a new hand.

CMD can also do that, and you will need the ForFiles command. The command you need is here: ForFiles /p "C:\path\to\folder"/s /d -X /c "cmd /c del /q @file". Change "C:pathtofolder" and "/d -X" to the path and option you wish to choose.
