Default Python tool for deleting redundant .wav-files

Hey,
When switching PC's and copying projects, a tool like this came to mind. After a while a primitive version was done and I was able to delete > 10GB of useless files from old projects.

How it works:
- Checks for a .rpp file in a folder
- If found, reads the project file
- For each .wav file in the folder and subfolders, checks if it's included in the project (freeze sources are included)
- Moves redundant files to "ReaCleanup"-folder to wait for deletion

Would this be of any use to more people? I could share the (very brief) source code or even an .exe format after some improvements, if this kind of program is needed.

Cheers,
Felix

+1! Would be very nice. One major flaw with the currect clean directory is that it only looks in the audio files foler set by the project.

Can't it be done as a (Python) Reaper Script ?

If yes, it should be shared via ReaPack.

it would be nice if it could read multiple reaper projects !

in a folder i may have my

funkysong_v6.rpp ( my mix with all heavy plugs n n tons of tracks etc)

and

recordings.rpp (a simple project for recording at best latency)

so if i delete everything which is not in funkysong_v6.rpp all the stuff in recordings is deleted

or in case of using "subprojects" the same problem can arise , in case of keeping an older version of the song too

so itd be nice to select more than one rpp in the same folder
