Deleting unwanted files

Post by Bonisagus » 16 May 2018, 14:32

Hi, just bought filebot to replace therenamer after theTVDB's revamp.

Looking good so far, and I'm primarily using presets in the GUI while I get used to things, I send TV & movies to several different locations for plex libraries.

My question, I can filter just video files easily enough, but is there a way instead to remove (delete) the txt and nfo files (for example) that come with downloads in most cases? I've had a quick look, but either I've missed it or it isn't as easy as I might hope. It just helps to keep the download folders tidy.

Unfortunately, FileBot doesn't have a batch delete feature, at least not for the GUI. There's plenty of tools that can do just that though, with or without GUI.


e.g. with filebot scripting:
viewtopic.php?f=4&t=5#p1341


e.g. with system tools:

My (very excellent) support depends on Windows Store and Mac App Store sales and Patreon support. Paying users, donors and everyone who contributes to FileBot in one way or another will get the very best support.
