    Hi M3 , thanks for the plugin ,very nice :)

    i start testing ... by the way on MP 1.3.0.A version ... now only on moving pictures :
    1- Background's - all delete correct and good ,and pass to trash can.
    2- Covers - all delete correct .... But not view in trash can ??

    my setting ,is to move to trash can , not to delete complicit out of PC ...

    i will test tv series little later , as i need to install the plugin on my test pc .... ;)

    Edit : I look at mpcleaner config' xml ... i see you already plan also to include : music and youtube.fm plugin's for future version ... that's great (y)

    Edit 2 : see screen .. i delete 1 more movie ... again all imag's was delete o.k , just covers not move to trash can...

    ysmp, my test setup is the same except the MP version which is 1.2.3, so it's a bit strange why you are not seeing deleted covers in the trashcan as the delete setting is global :eek:

    Working good.

    I have two suggestion:

    1. Your plugin deletes now only a whole series. I think it is good idea to do the same check for episodes and delete the then not needed episodes pictures.

    2. Something like a task planer/scheduler

    And a problem: the plugin tried to delete "Thumbs.db", and because thumbs.db was in use windows ask me what to do. So you should prevent the deletion of system files.

    Great plugin!

    It`s possible add the myemulators plugin game thumbs folder? because every time I need change the database I need cleanup one by one the game folder that contain fanArt and covers.

    Thanks
