FS#8932 - Move .tcd database files to their own folder

It seems that it’s often that case that when the database gets corrupted or has other problems the recommended solution is to delete the .tcd files in the .rockbox folder, and it would seem wise to me, for this reason and for simply keeping the base clean, to move them into a separate .rockbox/database directory, which could easily be deleted.

Closing all feature requests.

I've never understood why someone would want to manually delete the .TCD files. I thought that the first thing "Iniitialise Database" did is to delete them. Am I wrong?

I can't say for sure, but I do know that I've been in a situation where it seems like initializing fails in this regard and only deleting the files seems to rectify the problem. I think the second point is important as well, though, as the .rockbox folder is a little cluttered and it seems like an easy way to clean it up a bit.

If this isn't working I'd say it's a bug in "Initialise Database" - meybe see if you can reproduce it and report back?
