I have been keeping track of bad music I have for a long time. Today, I found out the number of bad tracks has hit 10,675. That’s a lot of wasted space! So, I tried to use an Amarok script to move the files to a directory I lovingly titled BADBADBAD, but it stopped after just a few tracks. Strange…
Then, I saw in the Amarok playlist menu a way to export to a file! Just add all the tracks you don’t like to a PLS file using the Export Playlist As… option, and run the following, replacing what’s necessary:
grep -E "^File" todelete.pls | cut -f 2 -d = | while read a; do mv "$a" /nexus/tardis/Music/BADBADBAD/; done
And you’re done!
hank@tardis:/nexus/tardis/Music/BADBADBAD$ du -sh 54G .
I think a 54GB savings is pretty darn good!
