    Hi,

    I have about 2 TB of folders which contain FLAC and MP3 (converted from the FLAC). I want to delete the FLAC files but keep the MP3s. It would be very time consuming to go through every folder and manually remove. Is there a batch file remover which I could select all folders and remove the FLAC simultaneously?

    Just do a Finder search for files with the .flac file extension, then delete them. Simple!

    No problem. If you don't know how to search by file extension, here's how:

    After you click the "+" (circled, which becomes a "-" when you click it) click the "Kind" dropdown, select "Other" then find "File extension" in the list.
