Hello,

I have deleted some games frome the launchbox interface. Then I realized that it does not remove the roms from the file directory.

How can i automatically delete all roms from my games folder who have been deleted via the launchbox interface?

If you click Tool>Options and check this option, you will get an extra prompt when you delete a game asking if you want to delete the rom as well.

I'm not sure how you automatically delete the ones you've already removed but this will help in future.

Just be aware that if you do this it will only import the file that was imported into LB, it won't delete any extra files like for example any cd based games that use the cue + bin format. So if you imported the cue file it won't delete the bin file.

Ok thanks for the tip.

I'm starting from scratch again and delete the files I don't want BEFORE adding the folder to the database of launchbox thanks to this great tutorial below.

Way more easy and quick.
