Creating links
« on: November 18, 2011, 12:17:45 »
1. I'm able to create only junctions, sym and hard links are not created.
2. For multiple files resulting path mask is wrong (see pic.)
3. Following links for delete operation deletes only files even if option "Keep empty folders" is uncheked.
4. E.g. i have the following folder structure:
Code: [Select]
c:\test\1\2\3and a junction
Code: [Select]
d:\test\test_c -> [J] C:\test
When i delete a junction following link, MC shows "Access denied" for the folder 3. I press [Skip All], but then it shows the error again for folders 2 and 1. When i delete real folders there are no errors

5. Setting "Follow link" doesn't work for calculating dir size.


P.S. MC v1.2.1 b868, WinXP SP3 Professional RUS

1. symlinks not available on XP. Only Vista,Win7 and better., Hard link should work as long as the file system is NTFS, and target/source are on the same disk
2. Ahh Whopps I Fix that
3. I Will check.
4. Work here. Might be a XP issue. I will check later on XP.
5. Yes that is disabled for now. Because it has some really bad issues on Win7. on Win7 there are a lot of junctions for system folders. and if this is check you will get in a never ending loop if you size the system folder and after a while the program will crash.

For p.2 i've just noticed that not only link source is wrong but also link target (on the pic from the first post). There were 3 selected files: 1.txt, 2.txt and 3.txt. But c:\test\1.txt\* is shown. Or is it by design?

Yes. it is by design.
If multiple files are selected it can not show the full target name of all the files in one row. So it shows the common path and a "*" to indicate the name.

Also the source name do not show the name either and also shows an "*". And when creating links to multiple files you can not modify the link names.
The name will be the same as the target for the link.
