Full Version: Cleaning up library doesn't clean folders with .nomedia

I add .nomedia file in an 'Extras' folder with .mkv files (They are in my library and I don't want them to be in my library)
I do 'clean library'. Movies associated to those files still show up in library  (*1*)
I have to manually delete them from library. Then, if I rescan the folder they are not added in the library.


Is *1* expected to happen or it's a bug? Any way of mass deleting those files from library?
I believe the only way to do it is either to delete your entire library and scrape it from zero or to delete them individually. It sure is a pain, but i don't know of any other solution.

I had this issue myself when I forgot to import my advancedsettings.xml after a fresh install.
