How to use the clean options

Post by korzynski » 28 Jul 2020, 03:27

Is there a detailed description of what the clean feature does, and is there any difference between

Code: Select all

--def clean=y

Code: Select all

--action clean
and

Code: Select all

-script fn:cleaner
Will these delete video extras that I've added myself? If it deletes something I need to keep is there any way to recover it?

1.
--def clean=y is an amc script option:
https://www.filebot.net/amc.html

Code: Select all

filebot -script fn:amc ... --def clean=y

2.
--action is a filebot option, and --action clean is just invalid usage:
https://www.filebot.net/cli.html

Code: Select all

filebot -rename ... --action copy

3.
-script fn:cleaner will instruct filebot to call the cleaner script:
viewtopic.php?p=1341#p1341

Code: Select all

filebot -script fn:cleaner ...
(1.) and (3.) are related in that amc script may call upon the cleaner script internally.

Won't touch any file in folders where there is at least one video file (that is larger than minsize).
The cleaner script (called standalone or as part of the amc script) may or may not delete your video extras depending on how they're organized. You won't be able to recover the files once deleted, so if you're worried about data loss in any shape or form, then the first step is to keep backups.
