Delete Recordings

We have a high call volume that I have been recording. I am up over 8000 calls recorded. I had to hack the php scripts to even display them (default is to display only up to 3000 recordings). I want to remove all 8000+ recordings. Can I manage recording from the command line, or will that mess up the database? I had hoped I could just write a cron job that would clean things up nightly. Does anyone know how that would affect the database?


call recordings are not tracked in a database. so you can manage the files via the command line, cron job, etc.
