Hello,

Is there a way to deleted a clip and his proxy with a single worker action?
From the catalog i can do it manually, but i'm wondering if i can do it with the worker software.

Thanks Jos

Yup,

In the variables you can use the original path from root to do the HiRes and then, depending on your proxy path structure, you can have it find the proxy either building from root, or by removing certain folder layers and replacing them with the initial parts of your proxy path.

Due to the variances in proxy setups, this is best done on the machine. Whatever variables we spec here will be wrong and obviously, since you're deleting could have really bad consequences. I'd get some help from your dealer or Squarebox support with this one if you can.

The basics are:

full path = /Volumes/drive/folder2/file.mov

proxy path might be /Volumes/proxy_drive/folder2/file.mov or

/Volumes/proxy_drive/Volumes/drive/folder2/file.mov

Depending on the path, you can set up the proper rm command to delete the file. But there's no way I'm posting any code examples to delete a file on this or any forum. ;) I'm sure you understand why.

"Rolf! That guy posted a thing that deleted all my proxy!!!!"

Be careful, test on a non-essential data set and I'm sure you'll get it sorted.

Thanks Bryson,

I'll understand that you can't posted some code. i'll think i get some help from my dealer or squarebox.
It's a little bit harder than I had hoped.
But thanks anyway for your reply!

Cool,

Note that it's not that hard, but you do need to understand the shell, which is not super intuitive.

Let us know if you get stumped.
