XML files for tasks that don't exist in QVS?

Hi,

I have now developed a QlikView-app to visualize the reload_structure we have on the
QlikViewServer - all the apps we have, either set for updating in specified time_intervals
or running one after another.
We do that by loading all the xml_files saved in the "QlikViewServer\Tasks" directory with
the HIERARCHY prefix.
<=> There is one problem and I hope that someone here may be able to help me:
It seems that there are xml_files for a number of tasks the files for which don't exist
anymore. They are marked as "enabled", too, so in the script we could not filter those out.
=> Now, we have to filter those tasks one_by_one on the GUI.

<=> I am not too familiar with these xml_files, we only use a handful of fields.
Is there any possibility to filter out those outdated tasks?
(One possible way would be to use a loop to parse through all the directories we want
to include, assemble a list of files and filter out data for tasks wherever no file of
that name is found <=> Is there any easier way?)

Thanks a lot!
Best regards,
