Remove movie once the movie folder is removed

Unlike with Sonarr where you might want to delete the folder to clean up old episodes and allow Sonarr to recreate the folder once a new episode is released. With Radarr, it's quite unlikely that you would delete the folder for any other purpose than to remove the whole movie.

My suggested behavior is that if you remove the file itself, you are actually indicating that you want to keep the movie in the list (most likely to redownload it) and when you delete the whole folder you want to remove the movie from the list because you are one with it.

This would allow easier management of movies that still follows reasonably simple convention.

Yes! I set my requested movies to get deleted every 30 days, but as of now if a folder is deleted it still shows up in Radarr even after updating the library.

ya right now they have the ability to "unmonitor" deleted episodes.. but should also have the option to delete deleted episodes

Yea this would be great. I often delete movies from Kodi/Emby, would save tracking down the movie in Radarr and deleting it there as well.

... same with Plex. Can delete the movie from library and source files/dir via Plex UI so it would be nice if Radarr reflected this by purging from its DB.

I download to a folder on my htpc check to ensure they are okay. Then move them to my server. So this feature would be great

@thechile +1 Deleting from Plex immediately after I've watched a movie would save having to manually delete it from Radarr sometime after (if I remembered to that is)
