Not sure that I understand. Is this one directory or a directory tree? How the the files get removed? Anyway...

I would loop through all the files getting name and size (if date cannot be trusted, ignore it). Add name and size to a little database somewhere, timestamping this addition. Or if the entry is present, update size and timestamp. Then loop through database and find entries with old timestamps; process these; remove from database and directory (removal not possible? --- mark as processed in the database.)

slapd-ldif - LDIF backend to slapd SYNOPSIS
/etc/ldap/slapd.conf DESCRIPTION
The LDIF backend to slapd(8) is a basic storage backend that stores entries in text files in LDIF format, and exploits the filesystem to create the tree structure of the database. It is intended as a cheap, low performance easy to use backend, and it is exploited by higher- level internal structures to provide a permanent storage. CONFIGURATION
These slapd.conf options apply to the LDIF backend database. That is, they must follow a "database ldif" line and come before any subse- quent "backend" or "database" lines. Other database options are described in the slapd.conf(5) manual page. directory <dir> Specify the directory where the database tree starts. The directory must exist and grant appropriate permissions (rwx) to the iden- tity slapd is running with. ACCESS CONTROL
The LDIF backend does not honor any of the access control semantics described in slapd.access(5). Only read (=r) access to the entry pseudo-attribute and to the other attribute values of the entries returned by the search operation is honored, which is performed by the frontend. FILES
