Sweeper & Flatten orphaned hmt files

#1
I have both Sweeper and Flatten running. I like most recordings in the root folder apart from a couple of categories (Films & Kids).

However this fairly regularly results in hmt files being left behind. Usually I get an hmt in both the old and new locations (I did wonder if the Hummy was possibly regenerating them at some point). This means I get failed recording alerts from RS and need to manually clean up these files.

Could the order of moving files be modified to prevent this or else after moving a set of files, check for a left-behind hmt?

I do occasionally see orphaned hmt files without any problem with the disk.

Problems can occur if a programme is being watched when another process moves or renames the file, the humax continues to update the old hmt name with the resume play time leading to an orphaned hmt file.
