There are four ways to delete movies from the Tools -> Delete screens. You can select a single title to delete from the Single screen. You can select a multiple number of titles from an alphabetized list of all the movies in the database from the Multiple screen. You can delete all the movies in the database from the All screen. In the Personal Server edition you can also delete movies based on a MySQL query using the Command Line Delete screen (Cmd Line).
If a number of movies have been deleted, it is recommended to optimize the database from the Tools -> Delete -> Optimize screen. This procedure will reorganize your movie database so it will run more efficiently.
All movies in your database will be listed in alphabetical order. You can select one or more movies at a time. To select multiple movies either hold down the Ctrl key each time you click on a movie or to select a range of movies, click on the first movie in the range then hold down the Shift key while you click on the last movie in the range. The movie(s) to delete will be highlighted. Press the 'Delete Movies' button to delete the selected movie(s).
When you press 'Delete All Movies' button ALL your movies will be deleted. The movie database will be truncated and reset like it was new. You do NOT need to run "Optimize Database" after you delete all movies.
