Deleting files while using DTE File upload (many)

Hi guys,

could anyone of you provide me with backend editor code for deleting files, while using File upload (many)?

I tried code from https://editor.datatables.net/manual/php/upload#Deletion-of-orphaned-files , but it deletes all my files, so I suppose that works only for File upload (one).
Remark: I use it already with File upload (one) and there is no problem.

My Editor version: 1.5.3 (DataTables 1.10.10).

Important part of code:

// This below does not work with File upload (many).
->dbClean( function ( $data ) {
  // Remove the files from the file system
  for ( $i=0, $ien=count($data) ; $i<$ien ; $i++ ) {
    unlink( $data[$i]['system_path'] );
  }

  // Have Editor remove the rows from the database
  return true;
} )

All relevant code:

// Build our Editor instance and process the data coming from _POST
Editor::inst($db, 'table')
  ->fields( ... )
  ->join(
    Mjoin::inst( 'files' )
      ->link( ... )
      ->link( ... )
      ->fields(
        Field::inst( 'id' )
          ->upload( Upload::inst( '/public/upload/__ID__.__EXTN__' )
            ->db( ... )
            // This below does not work with File upload (many).
            ->dbClean( function ( $data ) {
              // Remove the files from the file system
              for ( $i=0, $ien=count($data) ; $i<$ien ; $i++ ) {
                unlink( $data[$i]['system_path'] );
              }

              // Have Editor remove the rows from the database
              return true;
            } )
            ->validator( ... )
          )
        )
      )
    ->where( ... )
    ->process($_POST)
    ->json();

Remark: I had troubles uploading multiple files, but replacing $.ajax( $.extend( ajax, { with $.ajax( $.extend( {}, ajax, { helped me (from error on image upload- Cannot read property 'id' of undefined).

    I think that's a bug I'm afraid. The database clean isn't running on the many join. Let me look into that and get back to you.
