I don't think so. But you can always try in a "sandbox". And while
there are probably a thousand clever ways to do it on the command line
(probably even with find alone), if it's a one-off thing, I'd just
mark all files with 't' in emacs' dired, unmark ('u') the ones to
keep, and then remove the rest ('D'). I'm sure any other file manager
could be used instead of dired.
