It only updates on the size, not quality. So you could 1- Change the setting; 2- Delete all the folder.jpg that have a corresponding folder.jpg.original (you don't want to delete those that don't incase you received from a different means). Yammm will then recreate all the folder.jpg from the folder.jpg.original w/o having to redownload any.

I wrote a quick script for you that will do it: DeleteBackedUpFolderArtwork.cmd. Copy the script to your parent movie folder and let it go =)

If you are worried about running it I can change it to simply rename the folder.jpg and you'd have it as a backup. And below is the contents of the script if people prefer.

Code:
@ECHO OFF
PUSHD %~dp0

SETLOCAL

FOR /R %%I IN (folder.jpg) DO IF EXIST "%%~dpnI.original.jpg" DEL /A /Q /F "%%I"

ENDLOCAL

POPD

Thanks mikinho, I'll give it a bash later today, just got to work but will let you know how it goes.

Last question, I noticed this morning that yammm is still using my bandwith, will this process stop at some point or do I have to manually stop the service?

Thanks again

Sounds like you have "Override existing artwork enabled" Disable it and it should stop. This setting was meant to be used only once or for wiping artwork....I've removed it completely in v2.


That also explains the corrupt images and constant refreshing!

OMW......your right....that makes sense....

I enabled it because I have aloot of artwork already in the folders, but I want a FRESH lot so....
I'll try and disable it first, and hopefully it works.

Thanks...when can we expect v2., and will it support TV series aswell?

Awsome programme btw.

just started using media center and was looking for something to put some info into the folders and stumbled across this really awesome little app - it is fantastic!
when do you expect support for tv shows and perhaps anime?

I don't know when I'll be releasing to public beta, I'm not waiting on a few things out of my current control. If you send me a PM or e-mail w/ your e-mail address I'll include you on the beta when it is available. I have 4 big Media Center based projects that my goal is to have all done by June 18th. Depending on the timing on what I'm waiting for, Yammm may be this month or mid-May.

ok - everything working - synopsis info, cover thumbnail (folder.jpg) - but the backdrop.jpg is not showing - all the backdrops are there, they just are not showing up in mpc - what have I done wrong?
