    DESCRIPTION:

    MPCleaner is a new plugin that will scan your thumbs folder and depending on how it is configured will compare images with the respective database and if image is not in the database, it will be deleted. This will surely free up precious space on your HTPC.

    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
