You guys are awesome! I will update to this script, just to make sure.

I feel like I ask too much right now, but is it possible to include removal of Groups with black mask?

I hope it isn't a pain in the a**.

What about the other script I wrote. It does what you described in starting post. Did you try it:
Help with script that select Layers based on string then move selected layers to specific folder.

I edited a little the script and now it does what it should 🙂
