Move the Option of Deleting Original Files

Sep 20, 2014 at 2:32 AM
It would be nice, if moving of the "Delete Files After Conversion" went from a general setting to a setting within, the monitor folder, or the conversion.

I have multiple folders being monitored, and would like the ability to choose which folders automatically have the originals deleted, and which ones, are just left alone.

Interest twist, usually people ask to move this within the conversion task (which isn't possible due to conflict, what is 4 conversion tasks are using the same source file and one marks it for deletion and other don't, should you delete it or not?)

However moving to Monitor tasks is an interesting concept. What happens to manually added files should one delete those or not after processing?

Maybe break it apart, so that monitor folders have the choice of to "Delete/Archive/Nothing" and then separate manually added files to its own type of criteria. There are certain things that at least I want automated. I.E. recorded shows, go through a conversion process/comskip/metadata etc. But if I'm testing and manually add a file, maybe have it pop up, with what you would like to do with the original file. Or just a static setting. There are plenty of options, but I forgot that I had turned off my auto delete for everything, and almost filled up my drive. I turned it off, because I didn't want the originals for the group of videos I was converting to be deleted as I was in a testing phase.

Interesting thoughts. Would be good if opened a issue ticket for this change with your thoughts and we'll look into for the next release.

After some thought, I have done so. I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts on this.

Thanks for a wonderful product! It was some of the best money spent to keep this project alive, and be a part of the early access program!
