Patch to make the disktidy plugin remove the Folders that the Sansa Original Firmware writes every time it is started (i.e., for USB access)
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Rejected
Additional comments about closing:  The patch tracker is for patches you feel should be included in SVN Rockbox. "Dirty Hacks" especially can't be included. As well, Rockbox is specifically intended not to interfere with the original firmware, and shouldn't remove its folders.

When USB mode works, you'll never need to boot into it anyway.

Please keep this in mind when adding tasks in the future.

This is just a tiny bit of a hack ;-)

It negates my intense irritation at finding my Rockbox filetree full of useless, SHOUTY, folders

All I've done is modify the 'Mac' cleaning code to do the Sansa folder removal, so the 'Mac' cleaning option is lost.
It currently removes the following folders: MUSIC, VIDEO, PHOTO, PICTURES, RECORD, tmp. It does NOT remove the SYSTEM folder!

Do not apply this patch if you use or have any data in any of the folders listed above, as it will be deleted. You have been warned!
