I would like to select -folders- when they contain a file that starts with a certain string.
In my case the word Delete. I have added the word Delete to the name of 1 file and the entire folder should be deleted.
All these sub folders are within 1 parent folder.
I can perform a find file action, no problem, but want to delete all the sub folders containing these 'to be deleted files', i.e. a file name that starts with Delete.
Many thanks indeed. Yes, it is quite a number of folders. I'll check out the 2nd option.
I just thought the following possible workaround.
Something I believe is not (yet) available within Opus is to change a folder modified date after oldest/newest date in that folder.
In flat view/show files only I could filter the files on 'delete', select them all, change the create/modified date on whatever old date - January 1950 or something.
Then have the folder modified date changed after oldest date, so, to 01-01-1950, sort folders on date and delete them.
A tool like SetFolDate can do this or a script as in
