Purge xmp files for file browser module?
« on: July 31, 2013, 09:49:02 AM »
Do you think it makes sense to add a function to the file browser that deletes all xmp files from ml deflicker that don't have a corresponding cr2/jpg anymore, i.e. these shots have been deleted by the user? Having tons of abandoned xmp files over the place is neither clean nor tidy when browsing the folder on the pc, but then again maybe I'm the only one with that impression.

Canon deletes these files if you reboot the camera before clicking delete (at least on 5D3).

It shouldn't be hard to implement this.

Wupps, you're correct, same on 60d - but most of the time I delete the files right away, esp. if I don't want to have 20+ broken focus stacks on the card. Maybe there is a way to re-init this part of Canon's fw w/o reboot so it recognizes the files right after shooting?
