Hello community I don't know if this kind of software exist, but I made it because my disk drive was full and my Osu! Folder too, and sometimes with frame freezing.

I play Only STD without Storyboard,video... , with my Skin, thus I not use a huge amount of files in my Osu Sound Folder.
For the Common User that need free space and always play without storyboard, with black screen, and with a personal Skin. and maybe fixing freezing lewl

This program allow to you select any gamemode and Shrink (delete) the all the files, just leaving the important files, .osu(files), the main background, and the mp3 corresponding to the specific .osu file given by the selected game mode, that means if you select STD and a folder Sound have a various game mode, this will delete the other game mode leaving with just the game modes that you selected before, this maintaining the background of each .osu


Download:

https://github.com/GarciaMiguelangel/Os ... r/releases
Release Content:

Need Java 1.7 or higher!

Before & After:


Possible Bugs:
- In order to be able to unseen the oldest gamemodes, you need to rename into your Osu Directory "collection.db" to "backup_collection.db" also with "osu!.db" to "backup_osu!.db" because this files save the old database and need to be rewrite again. If you have any problem just rollback to the Original names Files.
- English mistakes in grammar and vocabulary, is not my native tongue, forgive me. :P
- Sometimes I don't know yet, maybe the old version of type Osu File, may not delete the unused files corresponding to the oldest mode erased. (but still delete the .osu mode unused)


Also for educational purposes and improvements I uploaded the project to Github with the License GPLv3.

If you want to preserve STD, you check it. Uncheck will be deleted.

In order to keep any game mode you must to check the modes that you want to preserve, the one how not, it will delete after confirmed by user.

In other words:
The one that is not selected would subsequently eliminated after the user has confirmed the action, right at the end of the scanning process, lists the maps that will be deleted.


I hope this clarifies your doubt.

Which version do you used? (.exe or .jar) What's the name of the antivirus?

If you tried to run the .exe and windows blocked, just run the .jar, it's the same program remember and install Java VM otherwise will not work.

Question, does this delete all the videos and storyboards? I sometimes play with videos and would like to keep them, I just want to remove unused gamemodes?

It will delete videos too, the main reason for this is reduce to minimum the Osu Map Song Folder, just remain the mp3, charts, and the imagebackground associate with the chart

Hmm dang, looks like I will have to delete the unused game modes manually, thanks for your reply!
