'0' is already used to switch the day between "one time" and "repeated".

To be honest, I didn't even think of removing the folder being such
an "every day" operation. I thaught you would normally have a list of
folders, and when you define a timer, it first goes into the video
directory without a folder. Then when you decide to put it into a
folder, you select one and that's it. If you really want to go
back to the plain video directory, you can always delete the folder
part from the file name. But that's something that would normally
happen only very rarely, I guess.
