The place to learn everything about Lexicon. Be sure to read about the Lexicon workflow.

Find Unused Files

You can find the unused file scanner in the top menu bar under Utility

With Find Unused Files you can scan a folder of your choice and display all files in that folder and all subfolders that are not in your Lexicon library. This is a really easy way to get rid of files you don't use and can save you tons of space.

You should select the parent folder that contains all your music.

Make sure you review the results of the scan since it may contain files you don't want to throw away. There's no way to undo after you delete so make sure you have a backup.

File extensions

By default, it will scan for all file extensions. But you may want to restrict this to only audio files or exclude all audio files. Just select Include or Exclude and enter the file extensions you want to keep.

Example: You might want to delete all images in your music folder. Select Include and add image extensions such as PNG, JPG, JPEG and BMP.

Special folders

Some common DJ folders are filtered and are not scanned. These are the following: _Serato_, Traktor, PioneerDJ, iTunes, Engine Library and Lexicon in your Music folder. Certain Windows and macOS system folders are also ignored.

Text report

After deleting your files (if you chose to do so), a report is generated in the Documents/Lexicon folder. This report contains a list of all files that were deleted.

You can also save the scanned file paths as a text file without deleting anything. This can be very useful if you want to use these file paths in a different program or write your own script to handle these files.
