Clear "Rename History"

Post by ZaPHoN » 24 Jun 2013, 17:11

I've been trying to figure out how to clear the rename history. Could someone give me some direction please?

OS Ubuntu 11.10
Filebot v3.6.1


Thanks

Just delete history.xml in application.dir. On Linux that should be in ~/.filebot. You can delete the whole ~/.filebot if you want.

Here's a filebot script that'll delete the history file:

Code: Select all

filebot -script "g:net.sourceforge.filebot.HistorySpooler.instance.persistentHistoryFile.delete()"

Hey, this no longer works. (I get error : MissingPropertyException: No such property: net)

When I replace "g:net..." with "dev:net..." I get "no such resource".

I looked at your documentation and the github page with all the groovy scripts, and i cannot find a way to delete history.

This snippet from 2013 no longer works. You can find the history.xml file and delete it.

You can use this snippet to find the location of the history.xml file:

Code: Select all

filebot -script "g:println net.filebot.HistorySpooler.instance.persistentHistoryFile"

Code: Select all

find ~/.filebot/ -name history.xml
shows no files for me on macOS. But I was replacing the .filebot dir with a tarball I took when I had a small history, but that apparently got me banned unexpectedly (in fact, I am hoping this message allows me to PM - I am still trying to figure out how to ask for my license back). It's possible I removed the history by accident before making the tarball.

The internal history has absolute nothing to do with license activation, and deleting it has no effect on a license that has been flagged by the license activation system.

If you get the License Error: Banned due to abuse error message, please read this:
