PostSubject: Remove MC Files   Fri Sep 17, 2010 7:58 pm

Hi,

Let's say I have 300 movies and want to remove all of the files that MC built/created during scraping. Is there an easy way of doing that without having to go through each folder 1x1 deleting the files?

Also

Top Gear Specials seems to be classified as season 20, and I can't find where to change the season in MC.

Thanks.

Edit: I'm assuming you can't un-rename TV shows as well.....

Well, if you haven't used any other apps to also catalog the movies then you could just simply sort the folder by file type (extension) and delete all the .nfo, .tbn, and
*-fanart.jpg files.

That sounds familiar for some reason... Check the forums in case someone else reported issues with that series....

Corrent. You've renamed files. You can't un-rename files irrespective of whether you've done it with MC or not without some sort of data restoration.

I believe this assumes that I have all of the video files in one place? I have all of my movies in this type of structure:

/Movies
/Movies/21
/Movies/28 Days Later

Going through each folder one by one would take a long time.

But you gave me another idea, since the files are .nfo and .tbn I can search through my root movies folder for those extensions and delete them!

Hopefully that would work! Thanks.

I wish that MC would have some type of remove feature that could delete the files that is created.
