[RELEASE] Texture Cache Maintenance utility

No, sorry. It's been discussed (at length) several times and a quick search of this thread should give you enough detail to get you on your way. A write up would be nice but not something I've gotten around to.

"

It would have helped enormously if you'd mentioned the exact command you used to perform the download. I can only imagine you've downloaded a web page instead of the source code. Take a look at what you've downloaded, does it look like Python code or HTML?

Anyway, I've tested the following and it works:
Code:
curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/MilhouseVH/texturecache.py/master/tools/mklocal.py -o mklocal.py
chmod +x ./mklocal.py

From what I have been able to interpret I think that the mklocal.py script can help me resolve this problem.

Yes, it should help clean that up - you'll want to use "--artwork clearlogo --nokeep" as parameters so that any logo artwork which can't be found locally, and which can't be downloaded from a remote site, will be marked for removal.
Texture Cache Maintenance Utility: Preload your texture cache for optimal UI performance. Remotely manage media libraries. Purge unused artwork to free up space. Find missing media. Configurable QA check to highlight metadata issues. Aid in diagnosis of library and cache related problems.
