Delete unused images and videos
You can delete unused (orphan) images and videos in your gamelist.xml, ie images and videos not associated with a ROM. Orphan images and videos may exist when you delete Roms for example.
Here are the steps to follow :
Select the system (only one) then click on Display
Check in the 'Folders' tab that the image and video paths are correct and correspond to the media path in the gamelist.
When the Database is filled with the found Roms, go to the 'Selected systems' tab and click on the 'Delete unused images and videos' button
Example: if you have an image in your gamelist with this path:
if you have declared this path as 'image folder' in the “Folders” tab:
When you click on the “Delete unused photos and videos” button, the image “./downloaded_images/10yard-mix.png” will be deleted, because it cannot find a match in the game list.
ARRM will search the game list for the following image:
But it can't find it because in this example the image in the gamelist is:
and so he will erase it.
