    Looking for an app or commands to delete certain files from dropped folders. Can't seem to find any on macupdate with search for "delete".

    User define
    A: folders that starts with user selectable characters
    B: Deletes user selectable ".something" files
    Save as a droplet or save within preferences so

    Drag folder into droplet/app would
    - Recursively go through all folders contained in the folder
    - Deletes A and B
    - Leaves other files alone

    Alternatively I guess I can make an action to look inside a folder, and delete such files

    I would say use Automator, and then save it as an app.
