Clear Library
#4
Hello Efix,

Clearing the library will only delete the files linked to the active library. This allows you to have multiple libraries set up in the app, but only clear the files for the active one. It's not really safe to just wipe out every file and folder when performing the library clear, because the user may have stored their own files in the application folder (especially if a custom storage location was selected). Additionally, I preserve all of the application settings when clearing the library. If I deleted every file under the application directory, that would wipe out the settings files as well. I'd rather be too conservative with clearing the files, potentially leaving a few extra ones, than to wipe out files the user may have wanted to keep.

Mike
