Support and Feedback / Search duplicates by content
« on: July 07, 2020, 08:53:52 »
Does MC have this feature? Can I find duplicate photos in two folders provided they have different names?

Support and Feedback / Luggish and slow!
« on: October 08, 2019, 10:57:07 »
6 instances of MC in the memory and no one on the taskbar! Horrible! It's extremely buggy and slows start.

Support and Feedback / MC doesn't show custom-iconed folders
« on: October 04, 2019, 23:56:13 »
Here is how compared MC window with Explorer on disk D: folder stack which is sync folder of my cloud provider is not showed. It's a bug!

Support and Feedback / Copy problem on SSD
« on: April 18, 2019, 23:19:29 »
I cannot copy a file from partition to partition. The dialog simply stuck and do nothing. Both dirs are non-system so this is NOT an administrative problem.

Support and Feedback / Search hidden files
« on: April 15, 2019, 21:06:44 »
Why does search not working for hidden files? Neither in search tool nor in the bottom box?

Support and Feedback / Tray icon bug
« on: July 21, 2018, 23:24:45 »
This doesn't work for long ago


Moreover, if I press tray icon it says "Do you want to exit" crashes if I press "Yes".

Here is the last crash ID

Support and Feedback / Path shortcuts
« on: May 27, 2018, 16:42:39 »
Neither of these commands worked for me

Particularly I tried user-defined commands and hot paths.

I define commands like this, but they doesn't work when I place them to the toolbar.

Also hot paths doesn't work as well. I assume it's because of the conflict ( I have Ctrl-Number keys assigned to keyboard layouts) but why Ctrl-H key doesn't work too?

Support and Feedback / LNK shortcut creation bug
« on: May 08, 2018, 18:50:15 »
I observe this bug for long ago. When I create shortcut the extension is filled wrong (not LNK but source file extension) and shortcut is not created.
Step 1. First screen where we select shortcut type, and it is filled wrong out-of-the-box.

Step 2. Bummer!

If we re-select LNK type again (through selecting another type) the extension is populated correctly.

Support and Feedback / ZIP unpack bug
« on: February 03, 2018, 14:00:47 »
MC cannot properly unpack some ZIP file (example attached). The archive structure is recreated properly, but the contents are lost.
On the screenshot you can see unpacked folder in left panel and original folder contents viewable by click in the right.
I also encounter the error when unpacking via built-in Windows unzipper, and they say Windows doesn't recognize some ZIP algorithms properly. If you use built-in Windows ZIP-engine (which is a bad decision of course), you should at least throw an error to user that archive was not properly extracted, but not silently unpack the empty folder.
7zip unpacks this file properly, so it's better to use its engine.

Support and Feedback / Extremely sloooow refresh
« on: February 03, 2018, 13:49:42 »
I encounter this bug quite often in many different occasions. When I copy/delete/pack/unpack something it is seen in Explorer quite good, but MC doesn't see it for a long time. Typically Refresh button helps but not in all cases. You should do something with responsiveness to events in filesystem.
Example: I overwritten the big iso file (which was 3.5Gb and became 3.9Gb). It was recognized in Explorer immediately but in MC - never. On the screenshot the same file is opened simultaneously in Explorer and in MC.
I waited for a long time but without success, maybe after 10 minutes file list was refreshed, I didn't check up.
It is considering that fact that copy/overwrite operation was done via MC, not via Explorer. It is quite shame to observe such slowpokeness.
I can give dozens of such examples, I observe this quite often.

Feature Requests and Suggestions / File compare by content
« on: August 08, 2017, 23:46:20 »
five years ago you said you gonna implement file compare by checksum. IS this featue still on the way? How can I compare two folders to find identical files disregard of their names?

Support and Feedback / Wrong sizing
« on: June 03, 2017, 11:07:52 »
This bug I experience very often. Size synchronization after some file is written to FS is toooo slow!
Only restart helps in some cases.

Support and Feedback / Folder duplication

I observe this bug very often.

Support and Feedback / Network drives are not showed in MC
« on: April 13, 2017, 13:11:39 »
Network shares are not showed in MC but perfectly showed in Explorer. Why?

Feature Requests and Suggestions / Cloud providers support?
« on: March 06, 2017, 14:02:41 »
do you plan implementing any support for cloud providers without official clients? Some of them have native open protocols support, e.g. Amazon S3 and OneDrive support WebDav.
Do you plan to support WevDav all in all?

Feature Requests and Suggestions / Registry search
« on: January 16, 2017, 13:48:32 »
I see the situation haven't changed since 2012. The search box is showed but no searching is held.
Do you have approximate roadmap for implementing this feature?

Support and Feedback / MC causes BSOD on remote machine
« on: January 07, 2017, 16:52:03 »
This is rather critical problem because of which I still cannot omit using Explorer  :)
I noticed connection of this problem with MC from the very beginning but decided to make additional testing, and now I can finally confirm that this BSOD is caused by MC.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Connect to RDP session to remote Win10 Anniversary machine
2. Open MC
3. Open in left tab redirected local storage from host machine

4. Initiate a copy operation
5. Receive a dump

And yes, I took the screenshot from Web again, because I'm not wanna bothering myself shooting real dump with camera  :) My error is 0x00000027

I use RDP-redirected storage extensively and have never experienced similar in Explorer. 

Further details about error can be get here, 'cause I'm not gonna cross-post here possibly irrelevant stuff.

Support and Feedback / Copy from MC to Explorer
« on: January 06, 2017, 15:16:53 »
Is it normal that while copy from MC to Explorer the MC window freezing and non-functional? When I copy large file it can take 10 minutes and I cannot do anything during this time.
I get this message

Support and Feedback / MD5 calculation
« on: November 08, 2016, 18:19:34 »
Does Create MD5 checksums file in File Checksum menu use filename-dependent hash-function?
I tried it on technically similar files (which have different names) and it calculated different checksums for them.
I assume, MD5 should behave other way.

Support and Feedback / Space determination bug
« on: March 31, 2016, 08:06:27 »
Hi there,
I revealed such strange bug concerning space determination on Windows 10.
The value that is showed in free device space area is wrong.

Support and Feedback / Crash during multi rename attempt
« on: March 22, 2016, 09:01:16 »
Hi there,
I want to report that Multi Commander crashed during multi rename operation. You can check two last today crash reports and grab all the details from them.
I use the following pattern for renaming (transliting):
|а|б|в|г|д|е|ж|з|и|й|к|л|м|н|о|п|р|с|т|у|ф|х|ц|ч|ш|щ|ы|ь|э|ю|я                         search pattern
_|a|b|v|g|d|e|zh|z|i|y|k|l|m|n|o|p|r|s|t|u|f|h|c|ch|sh|sch|y|j|e|yu|ya                    replace pattern
which works in TC like a charm without even ticking RegEx option.

What actions should I perform to reproduce its behavior in Multi Commander?
If you need more dumps or whatever, don't hesitate to ask me.

Support and Feedback / Load file names from file
« on: March 01, 2016, 05:24:19 »
Hi there,
Is there any opportunity to load file names from TXT file in Multi-rename like it is done in TC?

Support and Feedback / Unpack to system folders
« on: February 26, 2016, 06:01:59 »
When I want to copy something to disk C or any other so called protected folder I notice that Multi Commander switch to Administrative Mode automatically, whereas in case of unpack it is not the case.
I get following message when I try to unpack smth to Program Files. Is it a bug or a default behavior? What should I do to normally unpack to such places?

Script / Recursive file search
« on: February 17, 2016, 14:46:50 »
I have need for script which would find all *dsl and *.lsd files in directory including subdirectories and select those folders which contain them. I wrote this script which, however, doesn't work.
Code: [Select]
@var $file = FindFiles("D:\downloads\Dicts_unpacked\\*");

@var $n;
for( $n = 0; $n < arrayCount($file); $n++)
  @var $is = IsFolder($file[n]);
  if($is == 1)

    @var $infiles = FindFiles($file[n] ^ "*.lsd");
if(arrayCount($infiles) > 0)
         @var $num = SetSourceSelected( $file[n] , 1);

    @var $infiles = FindFiles($file[n] ^ "*.dsl");
if(arrayCount($infiles) > 0)
         @var $num = SetSourceSelected( $file[n] , 1);

I get error on the 4th line: Script engine error - Line : 4, Error : -1 => Code : "$n = IsFolder($file[n])"
However, if I hard code this line, e.g IsFolder($file[0])) the IsFolder function works smoothly.
What am I doing wrong? Maybe, I misunderstand some fundamental concept?

P.S. Is there any function for recursive file search?

Support and Feedback / Dynamic size display in file explorer
« on: February 10, 2016, 12:50:39 »
Is there any possiblity to achieve the same behaviour as dynamic (x.x k/M/G) in TC? When I set Mb or Gb option in Multi Commander, small files are shown as 0-sized.
