My photo camera allows to save pictures in RAW and JPG in parallel. I find this convenient because on my Mac I can quickly browse the JPGs and delete the "bad" ones. Besides, I keep the RAW files of the "good" JPGs in case I need to do some deep editing.
I would like to write an AppleScript which deletes all the "bad" RAWs (RAW files which don't have a corresponding JPG anymore). All files are in the same directory.
This is my outline (far away from correct syntax!):
tell application "Finder"
set source_folder to choose folder with prompt "Please select directory."
set theItems to ""
tell application "System Events"
set theItems to get the name of every disk item of source_folder
repeat with theFile in theItems
if the extension of theFile is "raw" and exists name of theFile & ".jpg" then
delete (name of theFile & ".raw") in source_folder
set source_folder to choose folder with prompt "Please select directory." tell application "Finder" set rawFiles to every file of source_folder whose name extension is "raw" repeat with aFile in rawFiles set baseName to text 1 thru -5 of (get name of aFile) set jpgFile to baseName & ".jpg" if not (exists file jpgFile of source_folder) then delete aFile end repeat end tell
