I forgot to mention that deleted files do NOT go in the recycle bin!

Would it be possible to make this an option as you've made the confirm dialog? I know some don't like the recycle bin but others (like me) think it serves a very useful purpose.

Thanks for the nice plugin

That's a cool plugin. I'm damn lazy and I like things that allow me to do less
Even emptying recycle bin is bothersome...

I'm lazy too  You have nothing to worry, if I succeed in sending files to the recycle bin instead of deleting them, I'll make that an option too!

Thanks, Wiz!

v1.1 is available!

Changes:
-It can now use the Recycle Bin (default in Configuration page) 
-"Delete" in right-click is now renamed to "Massdelete", so as not to be any confusion with other similar plugins.
-One-time reminder at first use that the Recycle Bin must be enabled in Recycle Bin Properties to be used by this plugin (just in case...)

Todo:
-"Remove directories if empty" option?
-Make it faster(?) by deleting all selected files with a single command, instead of deleting them one-by-one?

Enjoy!

Suggest: When press Shift + Massdelete directly delete files form disk, if not than send to Recycle Bin.

v1.2 is available!

Changes:
-It can now remove directories if empty (not default in Configuration page) 
-Improvements in delete confirmation dialogs.

Enjoy! 

@bluenet: this would be ideal, but I don't know if it can be done with current functionality that foobar2000 provides (combination of right-click menu & key-press).

You could provide two different versions of the delete command: one that sends the deleted files to the recycle bin, and one that doesn't.

I suppose "Massdelete->Recycle" and "Massdelete->Delete" context menus are better interface-wise than the current option in the configuration page. I'll do that in the next few days, when I have some time.

ok, here's v1.3!

Changes:
- "Massdelete" context menu now has 2 options: "Send to Recycle Bin" and "Delete". The Recycle Bin option in the configuration page is gone.
- Removed "Remove directories if empty" (for now) because it didn't remove directories which had other empty directories. I'll see what I can do about that.

I think that I'll rest for a while

Terrific plugin Wizard!  Thanks.

A suggestion to aid in distinguishing which command one just selected.  The dialog box should reflect which command was chosen, recyle bin or delete.

Thanks! 
But it does! The message (even the icon too) is different. These are the exact dialog messages and dialog titles that you get when you right-click in Window Explorer and choose "Delete" and Shift+"Delete". I deliberately did this to have the same feeling.

My mistake.  I should've checked again before posting.

v1.4!

Changes:
- Now it removes from playlist only the items that were successfully deleted. Previously, it would just call "Remove dead entries from playlist" (I was just lazy...) 

Enjoy!

since you seem on top of this thing i'm not gonna update foo_Delete anymore... my windows C skills are minimal anyway.

whether or not you used my code from foo_Delete in foo_massdelete, I hearby grant you explicit written permission to use it in any way you see fit. However, I provide absolutely no warranty or guarantee of fitness or fitness for a particular purpose and use of such code absolves me from all responsibility for life, the universe, and everything.

Wizard, thanks for your work.

I have some little requests for your plugin.

1) Option to assign DELETE key to one or another massdelete action. I know I can do it via keyboard shortcut in foobar config, but maybe it's easier for newbies.

2) An option to have a a confirmation dialog (like the one we have right now) that ask user whatever he wants:

--> To delete physically the files (send it to the recycle bin or delete it)
--> To delete the entries from the playlist.

This is very useful when you have (like me) DELETE key associated with Massdelete>Send to recycle bin. Sometimes I just want to delete the playlist selection, and not the file(s).

Hi!
I'll think about your suggestions, but since delete playlist selection exists, it's better to leave it outside massdelete. What I'd do is assign Ctrl+R to recycle files, Ctrl+D to delete files and leave Num Del to delete selection. Although I can see your point having one common shortcut for the functions.

Hi, Wizard

I'm missing one feature in another foo_delete plugin: delete on playing file

Often after playing some files for a while, I like to check them out one by one. Play one, if don't like it anymore, delete it right there, jump to and play next file automatically..., it's a handy way, isn't it?
So, is it possiable to add this feature in next version?
Thanks for your work.

Hi!
This is the thing I plan to do in the future, but not right now since I have little time free. Maybe in a couple of weeks or so.

Thanks - looking forward to the version of this plugin that will allow the deletion / recycling of a file that is currently playing.

Is it possible to change the name of the option in the context menu from "Send To Recycle Bin" to just plain and simple "Recycle" ?
