Purge obsolete files not finding old files


#1

window > libfredo6 settings > Purge obsolete files
nothing is displayed

I save my plugins in
C:\Users\Harry\AppData\Roaming\SketchUp\SketchUp 2015\SketchUp\Plugins
I used a ruby script to find the correct folder
Found the plugin folder using ruby script
Sketchup.find_support_file(“Plugins”)
C:/Users/Harry/AppData/Roaming/SketchUp/SketchUp 2015/SketchUp/Plugins
also tried placing the plugins
C:\ProgramData\SketchUp\SketchUp 2015\SketchUp\Plugins
still no luck deleting the old files, which I can see when listing the folder

What ‘old files’ are you referring to.
Fredo’s tool removes old-files which are now unneeded, and which pertain only to his tools ?
Perhaps you have none ??
How might Fredo’s tool be able to determine what ‘old files’ you have otherwise?
Have you thought about installing the SketchUcation PluginStore toolset?
It includes tools for AutoInstalling and Updating Plugins, Installing from archives [RBZ/ZIP] into non-default Plugins folders, Managing [enable/load/disable] Plugins and Extensions, and Uninstalling Plugins [these are not deleted but they are renamed so they no longer load or list as disabled]…

The old files are the ones left behind when upgrades are downloaded

You haven’t really explained the issue… :confused:

Could you give us an example of an ‘old-file’ that you’d like to delete?

If you mean RBZ files then those should be stored in say a Downloads folder and then your Plugins folder does not get clogged up with ANY RBZ files…
Do NOT put RBZ files into the Plugins folder.
The RBZ archives serve no purpose other than being the containers of a Plugin’s RB and subfolders helper files etc.
Once they have been extracted into their desired destination[s] they are no longer needed.
