After a while you'll get messages from dirvish-expire that the last
image can't be removed.

Either choose to delete the images by hand, or to preserve it for longer
by either moving them outside the bank, or by editing the summary file
to set the expiry date further in the future. I usually to the latter,
moving the date on 6 months or so, and after that time finally remove
them by hand after all.
