I managed to delete files from smart lists and delete the lists afterwards. After doing this for abot half an hour i realized i had "remove files to trash" unchecked, which is bad because i wanted to delete the files, too...
Is there a script or another way to find these files and delete them (not only the entry in the database) permanently?
Before asking whether i checked for posts containing an answer to my question. Yes I did, but didn't find one.

By this do you mean you deleted the files from your library but didn't delete them from your harddrive?

If that is the case you could perhaps move everything in your library to a different folder and delete the original folder

or just scan the folders where these files are for new comics, and when CR has found them (sort by added in the recently added smartlist), delete them again with the "delete files" checked :P

Of course this only works if the all other files in those folders are NOT in your library

I coulda sworn that there was an undo button somewhere in comicrack.
