UDPATE: read the comments for simple oneliners!

Sometimes you need to say goodbye to a good friend.  ImageGen served us very well.  But we made the switch to ImageProcessor some time ago.

The only thing, if you start to clean the media folder, are all the "Cached" folders.  To remove them we wrote a little powershell script to help us out.


$path = "C:\Projects\parentfoldertoclean"
cd $path

# delete Cached folders
get-childitem -Include Cached -Recurse -force | Remove-Item -Force –Recurse

# Delete any empty directories left behind after deleting the old files.
Get-ChildItem -Recurse -Force | Where-Object { $_.PSIsContainer -and (Get-ChildItem -Path $_.FullName -Recurse -Force | Where-Object { !$_.PSIsContainer }) -eq $null } | Remove-Item -Force -Recurse
