Frontend can request delete of all files in Recordin System Path
When using Kodi as a front-end it is fine when deleting an individual recording or an entire folder containing multiple episodes of a programme. However, Kodi also allows a delete request to be sent to the back-end when selecting the '..' item in a folder. This causes the entire parent directory to be cleared out, i.e. all recordings.
While this could be corrected by changing the available context menus in the back-end a fix here would ensure that all back-end software would be protected.

Actually I've now looked at this and realised there is no concept of a directory delete within the HTSP protocol (used by Kodi). Therefore this must be something that's being done client side to delete all files in a directory.
And having spoken to some Kodi guys (and checked on my own box) it's actually no longer possible (not sure when it was changed, I'm on 15.2?) to bring up a context menu on ".." in Kodi.
