Safe to delete fanart in Windows\Sonarr folder?


#1

All my media is on it’s own drive on my computer. All in “O:” which is an internal hard drive. All the media already has the fan-art and media covers inside the folder containing the episodes/movies. I see no point in having the fan-art and media covers inside my OS drive folder as well as inside my media drive folders. Is it safe to delete the ProgramData\Sonarr\MediaCover files? Do I risk messing anything up from doing it? Or does Sonarr need these files?
Also if I am advised to not delete them and keep them:
Would hard-linking them pose a risk in Sonarr working properly?

Is it safe to delete fanart from:
C:\ProgramData\Sonarr\MediaCover

I would also delete Radarr’s as well, once I get an answer that it is okay.
C:\ProgramData\Radarr

Those are the files Sonarr uses for the UI, if you delete them it’ll redownloaded them when it refreshes. To add, don’t delete them, it’s a waste of time and resources.
