deleting folders

Postby phusion » Mon Jul 04, 2011 10:35 pm

Happy 4th NB guys:

Was wondering if the following is possible:
Using NB's "Enable post Unrar filter" option I would like to create a filter that deletes folders:
"Samples" and "Covers" (and of course the files in these folders).
Is there a way to delete entire folders?

thanks
:D

Not without new code. I can make a note to think about it. I'm always reluctant to delete folders because, if you use a common folder for anything, it's always possible the wrong thing will get deleted.

Thanks for the answer Quade.

Can you please tell me how to filter for an AVI file with the word "sample" in the file name.
for example: xyzsample.avi or samplexyz.avi

thanks

I use:

.*sample.*[.]avi$

in my global filename reject filter...

If you are using a subject filter then do not use the $ at the end.
