Dangerous cleanup behaviour can delete whole movie folder
#1
Information 
I'm using tinyMediManager 2.9.3.1 on Win 10 (newest updates included).

I had a movie file in the main folder "Western". Because I had it twice, I deleted it. Then I was really surprised - the whole "Western"-folder was gone, including over 50 movies, tinyMediManager cleaned it completely up. Undecided
So, first of all I was looking for some other missing movies in other locations. Also my whole "Cartoons"-Folder was no more available. Confused
I got almost panic.

Fortunately I found the Folder ".deletedByTMM". Blush
Everything was still there. Cool So I felt very happy to be able, to recover all missing files.

So be carefull, if you delete some movies, not correctly sorted into subfolders. Check first, that your subfolders are still available ...

First of all - sorry for almost deleting your files.
Handling user files correctly has always been a top priority inside TMM.

We have already some basic checks in there;
but this is a nice catch for a corner-case in our detection (when there is exactly one movie within the nested structure)

I've made some changes for next version, which should fix that.
Thx for reporting!

And remember: Always keep a backup of your important files!

Wanna help translate TMM ?
