When using the Random folder advance plugin, place a file called "folder_advance_dir.txt"
containing the directories that you want to be scanned in the .rockbox folder.
Only the directories in this file and any contained directories will be scanned.

Better looking error handling if custom directory not present

Now blank lines are ignored (means you can remove a line using the rockbox editor). If you want the root dir you must have a line reading "/" (without the quotes)
small fix with no. of folders displayed if a dir is not found.

By adding an entry eg:


Everything in the /CDs dir will be ignored.
If you just want /CDs to be ignored but want to include the dirs within /CDs
you need to have both entries:


You can have a maximum of 10 "removed" directories. this is so that each entry doesn't have to be compared with the whole file (faster).
