Verner's trick is a handy and creative one for the task he described. As
Jeremy has noted, MIF2Go is at least as easy, probably more so. For the
task you describe, though, it would seem like Bruce Foster's Archive
plug-in would be a simpler, more efficient way to go at it. Or am I
missing something?

At a former company, we used this method to clean up files after a
release. Our process was to copy the graphics folder to somewhere else
(as backup) and delete everything out of the original folder. As Frame
asked for a graphic, we would move it back into the original graphics
folder. The leftovers could be tossed, leaving a graphics folder that
was much easier to find things in and without random old screenshots,
files in other formats, etc.

Very handy trick.
