Since MB now stores metadata centrally (yay!), I was thinking of ways to migrate away from the local metadata I have stored.

 

I could delete all XML, jpg and png files from the tree, but this would still leave the hidden "metadata" folders in all TV Show seasons.

 

Seems a bit clunky and risky. So I am making a feature request for a mechanism (plug-in or non) that will grab all local metadata and migrate it to the MB structure (that way you don't need to download every single file again) and then clean up the media folders. Alternatively just delete everything in the media folders without migrating the data (new download instead).

 

An option to dump the migrated data somewhere would be nice too. Just in case you need something.
