I'm in the need of building a script to clean up my media library. I've been PVR'ing for years now and it's time to clean things up. For example, my TV Shows are saved as such:
/media/storage/Show Name/Season 1/Show Name - S01E01 - Episode Name.mp4
Over the years I've created a bunch of subdirectories further than that and I want to go through and clean those out. For example, the following directory might exist:
/media/storage/Show Name/Season 1/subtitles
If I use the find command, with -type d and -maxdepth 4, I have discovered that the subdirectory I want to delete is in the 4th level. There should be nothing valid in the 4th level and okay to delete.
I don't really know where to start. I tried using the find command with -mindepth 4 but that doesn't seem to work as I would expect. Basically, I want to scan through the library, then I want to test to make sure that the directory isn't "Season XX" and if it is a subdirectory within Season X then I would like to delete that subdirectory.
