Make Foobar2000 to remove files from hard drive
Hello, I use Foobar as my default music player, I was wondering if theres possible way to select and remove music from the list and pernamently of hard drive ?
the steps are: theres a song on the list, that i want to get rid of it even from hard drive, so i did by selecting remove pernamently, from list and hard drive but it might play still that song
after when its done, i might get it back because foobar is still playing this song which it might have it still on RAM untill the song has change so software will remove it from RAM


its just like music player in Ubuntu/Kubuntu called Amarok 1.4.10

A follow up question: Is it possible, when deleting a file via foobar2000, to have file actually be deleted rather than sent to the Recycle Bin?

as far as i know, Amarok doesn't put song to recycle bin, it stays in RAM, thats what i saw when i removed 120MB track in linux, the memory increased by 120MB of the software that it used to run. and about that file operating, i cant find it after reinstalling foobar2000
