Hi guys,

I've recently had to move my collection to a different drive as my NAS was failing. I have have it all on a new drive and imported everything but there are a few files that are corrupt. They have been imported but just have the big cross on the display for each issue.

Is there a way to automatically remove these files?

Thanks

Hello,

One option is to create a Smart List, click the Query button and paste the code below into it.
This list the fileless entries in your database, then just select and remove them all.

Name "Missing Files"
Match [Expression] is true "{FileIsMissing}"

Hope this helps
Cheers!

PS: Oppps! I did understand that the files were missing, now I see the files are just sitting there but they can not be opened thus ComicRack marking them with a big cross. I just looked at the options inside the query but i have found nothing that looks like FileCorrupt or similar.
Hope someone will help, I'm also interested...

Some one wrote a bunch of perl scripts -- Malor, I think. IIRC there was a script to go through and find those damaged files. What you could do with them I don't recall exactly but there were a bunch of options. I don't know if they're on this forum or if you can google for them. Maybe someone else on the boards still has them.

Thanks, I've found the post but it didn't have anything to do with removing corrupt comic (unless there are some other scripts somewhere I haven't seen?)
