FSPortable - Know issues
 * Connecting multiple device with same device name and you will only be able to access the first one.
 * When adding audio file to the device, Album art and meta data for music is not set. Some devices fixes this them self. some do not.
   (Not sure if it will be added so the FSPortable plugin does this or not )
 * Max file size limit of the device is not checked
 * Allowed content type of a folder is not checked. Write a file that is not allowed and the device will delete it without saying anything.
 * Free / Available space is not show. Plugin API does not yet support that.
 * Plugin not working on Windows XP

MultiScript function CopyFile,MoveFile now support optional option "NEWQUEUE", "USEEXISTINGQUEUE"
MC just keeps getting better  8)

Is there any chance these functions could be added to the MC.Explorer.Delete command also?
