Converted my library and want to delete all file types except *.epub

My library is now 28 gb large. I don't need .pdf or .doc etc. Is there a way to delete the file types that I don't need? Specifically, I want to delete all file types except .epub.
I have already converted all books to .epub already. I think I can trim 10 GB out of that folder.
If there is a thread on the forum already covering this, I apologize for posting this, but I couldn't find it.
Thanks for helping and many thanks for a great application.

Thank you so much Kovid. I can't believe I didn't see that option before. I knew that you already thought of this situation.
Thank you again

13 GB trimmed out after less than 1 minute of processing. BTW, right clicking on the button had no effect, but the down arrow next to the button did have a sub-menu option to "remove all formats from selected books except..."
