    From Deyssman@21:1/127 to All on Saturday, March 25, 2023 11:12:38
    Greetings All,
    I have a question.
    How do I remove old files listings that are no longer existing on the drive.
    I had a hard drive that went bad. Is there a file that I can delete with mystic to accomplish this, that will be regenerated when I start to again to re-build files that are available for download.
    This is a example what I am talking about.

    Thanks in advance for all replies,
    Greg

    I believe that the "mutil massupload" command should take care of that. On a different note, I've been to Troy, NY many times! My daughter played for RPI's women's hockey team.

    You need to edit your mutil.ini file and check for the [PackFileBases] stanza; in it you will find:

    remove_missing = false

    ...and if you change that to "true" and then run:

    mutil -run PackFileBases

    ..it should pack the file bases and at the same time remove any files that are missing from disk.

    Hope this helps! =)

    Best regards

    Wow, what a small world; as it would seem to be when there is a local connection like this.
    I also have a connection to RPI, back in the 80's I have been to RPI Houston Field House to see Iron Maiden. I also was at the their recent show in
    Washington, D.C. in October of 2022.

    Saw Iron Maiden in San Diego (Chula Vista) last year. Still awesome entertainers and performers!
