That was supposed to say "Thanks for this" but I was in a hurry.
Anyways, here is my solution:
# Remove any copies of .hex that aren't BMC
for foundItem in directoryList:
if ".hex" in foundItem.lower():
if "bmc" in foundItem.lower():
print foundItem + " removed!"
print "Failed to strip excess hex files."
