Brendan,

Un-join them first.  Then select the RAW files and delete them.

Ouch Brendan!  The ones you want to delete are the JPGS!  Raw files are your negatives.

Having said that, I have a custom sort set up:
   primary sort is {filename:-3}
   secondary is {filename}

Now they will sort separately and are easy to select just the JPGS -- not the raw please -- and delete them.

hey,

ok I see I dont explained detailed enough what I want.


the thing is, that I've sometimes RAW+JPG.

folder:
picture1.jpg
picture2.nef
picture3.nef
picture4.jpg
picture4.nef



in some situation I want delete FROM THIS PAIR only one file-type.
If I would delete all NEF, I would lost picture3.

Hope you understand me...

View the images separately (uncheck the option on the View menu that shows them as RAW+JPEG) and then select and delete any images you want to delete.

Kirk, I think what Brendan wants to do is only remove a file IF it is part of a pair (e.g., only remove those nefs for which there is a jpg).

Brendan, there is no automated (nor is there a fast) way to do this in PM; you'll need to manually select the ones, and delete them.  If you do this frequently, I would suggest you write a little shell script that does this for you (shouldn't be too complex :))
