I imported all the tracks contained a folder and its subfolders into my collection. I now want to remove them from my collection: how can I remove all the tracks contained in a folder and its subfolders from my collection with Traktor 2?

Right now I select manually those tracks in the "All Tracks" list but I'd much rather simply specify the folder to be removed from my collection as it is far less error-prone

I use Traktor 2.6.5, but I am open to upgrade if the feature was added later on.

@DrMayhem What topics can I ask about here?: "usage of specific music software". Traktor is a music software, widely used by DJs when performing. Therefore I believe my question is unambiguously on-topic. – Franck Dernoncourt Mar 20 '14 at 15:04
I'm prepared to accept I may be wrong on this one. Do DJ's really do this sort of file sorting live? – Dr Mayhem Mar 20 '14 at 16:31
@DrMayhem No it is usually done beforehand but many questions on this website pertain to performance preparation, right? E.g. in How do I maintain flamenco guitar fingernails? is still useful even though we don't expect performers to cut their fingernails on stage. – Franck Dernoncourt Mar 20 '14 at 18:28
Did this problem also get solved with an upgrade to the latest version of Traktor? Or did you figure out another way to do it? If so, you can answer your own question and it would be helpful to future people looking to solve this problem. – Todd Wilcox Feb 2 at 20:08
@ToddWilcox I haven't upgraded, still same issue with my version (2.6.5 R250). I prefer not to upgrade unless it solves the issue. – Franck Dernoncourt Feb 2 at 20:20
