Onderwerp : [vdr] delete recordings instead of renaming to .del?
After I have watched a show, I delete it within VDR. VDR immediately shows
me there's now more free space on the disk. In reality, VDR has renamed the
.rec directory to .del. Therefore the recording is not really gone, and still
takes up space on my hard drive. After some time VDR removes all
.del directories. Then the space is freed on the hard drive.
Well, actually VDR does take into account the space used by deleted recordings.
Maybe the skin you use doesn't call the proper functions to display this?
Is it possible to let VDR immediately remove the recording from the hard
This could cause slow responses to menu actions, and maybe even disturb
How does VDR decide it's time to remove all the .del directories?
It does this at idle times, after some timeouts.
