    I am trying to reduce the amount of roms on my HDD. I have the goodsets for nes, snes and genesis. I want to keep basically all the (U) and (J) roms but only the good dumps labeled as [!]. windows file searching sucks balls and if i type that string (U) [!], it lists all kinds of files, some that don't even contain a !. Is there any good file sorting software or any type of rom indexing software that can do this for me? right now im searching for the titles i want to delete, using windows search, for example the types labeled [a1] and [b1]. i want just one rom for one game, its ok to have a U and a J region. mainly because there are some games that are only J usually all the E and U games are the same.

    use no-intro romset, they only keep original cart dumps

    size of the set doesn't matter. i have about 50 GBs free. and that with all genesis, snes and nes games.

    use Romcenter + no-intro dats, it will mark all your useless (overdumps, bad dumps, hacks, etc) ROM files and only keep the good ones

    thank you, romcenter is the answer. after going crosseyed for about 2 hours going through just sega genesis, this could have saved me all that work.
