Allow 'Delete From Disk' option within playlist area

What is the feature or ability you would like to have?
Allow ‘Delete From Disk’ option within playlist area - This is an event/wedding DJ mindset approach where playlists and new downloads create duplicates or new versions of tracks.

Archive is an extra step that is not needed if you can confirm via warning pop up.

Or instead of delete from disk you could send to recycle bin/trash

How will this feature help you and others?
Quicker workflow.

  • When new playlists are generated through track matcher or other features, songs to be deleted appear such as poor remixes that have crept into the library or low quality version. Sometimes tracks you know you’ll never use.

Is this feature available in an existing product? If so, what product?
Traktor allows this within playlists - > delete from collection > Pop with option to delete from library only or disk/drive
Rekordbox should but you have to create a work around and delete from disk then from library.

Does a workaround currently exist?
your archive can achieve this
** EDIT - Just realised cannot delete from disk within Archive either…
Proposed work around would be to add ‘To Delete’ in a spare tag then sort with Tracks view to find all those tracks to be deleted from disk.

Try checking the Delete from Lexicon option and the option you want will appear :slight_smile:
