[RELEASE] Texture Cache Maintenance utility

It does a lot, but it's not particularly complicated to use - you can be up and running in a few seconds (a little longer on Windows) if you follow the installation instructions.

At the end of the day it's a command line tool - if you understand what that is, you should be able to use this script. If not, you can choose to learn, or find something else that has a GUI.

Nope, that add-on is as dumb as a box of frogs, and as a bonus it will push "news" to your box. If all you want to do is nuke your entire texture cache - so that _every_ item of artwork needs to be re-cached as you browse the GUI - then sure, use that add-on, provided you're happy to accept the overhead of running something so ridiculously simple "as a service" (ie. it's running all the time).

If however you want to manage your cache a little more intelligently, the script in this thread is (IMHO) your best option, particularly if you're comfortable with a command line - if not, there's another add-on that offers to clean thumbnails (this add-on is not related to this script).
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.
