if you have structure:


is there a command you can issue that will delete all /thumbs/ directories and files recursively but preserve each of gallery/<dirx>/ contents or would this have to be done programmatically?

I would say programmatically .. seek someone's help on eLance and it is so simple that someone perhaps will help you out for free
