Support and Feedback / copy/move questions
« Last post by veds on Today at 00:19:02 »
small glitches:

1)
It isn't possible to abort a copy/move while it is preparing.
The program only stops after the preparing is done.
In normal situations preparing takes almost no time but with a large amount of files on a remote disk preparing can take minutes and in those cases it would be nice if the program would stop immediately after pressing the abort button.

2)
While it is preparing the title of the dialog is "Copying.." even if you select a move operation.

3)
When I want to copy files from different locations the program first asks whether I want to "recreate source folder structure to avoid collisions" or "merge all source files into the same target location" and then shows the copy/move dialogbox.
Would it be possible to integrate this question in the copy/move dialogbox (for example a checkbox which ask whether to keep the relative paths) ?

Beta Releases / MC v8.9 build 2528: CTRL+T
« Last post by veds on Yesterday at 23:55:50 »
When in a panel only one tab is present and in that tab a search is running (RESn:) it isn't possible to switch to another drive as long as that search is running.

You can duplicate a tab but that new tab also points to RESn: with the active search.
You can select another drive in the dropdownlistbox of the running search but nothing changes.

Could it be possible to change this behavior so it becomes possible to switch to another drive in a tab where a search is running ?

Beta Releases / MC v8.9 build 2528: 0 found files
« Last post by veds on Yesterday at 23:33:43 »
Press Alt+F7 to start a search which takes a long time to run (for example start a search from c:\ and look for all .exe files) and list the results in RES1:.
Close the dialog.
In the RES1: tab you will see that the amount of files and folders found increases.
Press CTRL+T to duplicate the RES1: tab.
In the second RES1: tab the amount of files and folders found always stays 0.

Beta Releases / MC v8.9 build 2528: crash
« Last post by veds on Yesterday at 23:15:00 »
Press ALT+F7 and start a search which takes a long time.
Close the "find files" dialog and press pause. 
"Search is paused" appears.
If you now close the tab the program doesn't respond anymore.
If you close MC instead of closing the tab you get a crash.

Support and Feedback / Re: Another thumbnail post ... sorry ...

You could try this - it won't hurt as the thumbnail cache will simply rebuild itself as you browse files.  Might be worth a try.

Good catch @Anti-Bacterial: I should have thought of that (but then I am very old  ;))

Windows 10 thumbnails all messed up? Here's how to fix it!
https://www.windowscentral.com/how-reset-thumbnail-cache-windows-10

Another reason may be you do not have write permissions to the cache files in this folder: 
%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer\thumbcache_*.db

Note: explorer hides this folder/files by default. You may have to adjust your explorer settings to view hidden files.
My suspicion is Windows cannot update your thumbnail caches at this location (folder/file access permissions), and is using the existing cache. Running DiskCleanup as described in the article should fix this by clearing and rebuilding the cache.

If the above options do not resolve your issue, you can try changing the MC settings to manage internal thumbnails instead of Windows as Mathias suggested above.

Failing that I think you might have some file/registry reference corruption.

Hope this helps you! Lettuce snow  :)

Cheers 🤞

Using latest beta MC x64 v8.9 Build 2528 portable release candidate
OS: Windows 10 64-bit (version 1903 Build 18362.239)

GOAL: I'm trying to move a new version of an identical file from folder temp1 into folder temp2, but I only want to overwrite the file in temp2 if the file in temp1 (latest version by date/time stamp) is newer than the older file in temp2.  In other words, move file if  the datestamp in Temp1 > Temp2

PROBLEM:
MC hangs with the progress dialog open while moving duplicate files across folders using the IF NEWER option.  Screenshots attached. The issue did not exist previously.

Steps to reproduce problem:
  • In menu, select View > Split Size > 50 / 50 to use split view.
  • In left panel, create a new folder called temp1
  • In right panel, create a new folder called temp2
  • Copy and paste a test test file into temp1 folder.   I'll refer to this file as Russell 3000.pdf
  • Copy a different test file with an older date/time stamp into the temp2 folder. 
  • Rename the file in temp2 folder as Russell 3000.pdf
    Note: Be sure to use the *exact* same filename and extension as  the filename in temp1 folder, i.e. Russell 3000.pdf).  The date/time stamp of the file in temp2 folder should be different (and older) to demonstrate this use case. Do not copy an identical file into both folders. Temp1 file must be dated earlier than temp2 (old file). You can alter the date/time of the file in temp2, if needed, using the Tools > Change Properties menu.
  • Now we're ready to demonstrate the hanging when moving duplicate filenames
  • Go to the temp1 folder, select file Russell 3000.pdf
  • In the MC menu, choose File > Move and then click OK
  • When the overwrite warning popup dialog appears, take note of the file date/time differences. 
    Temp1 is the newest version of the file; Temp2 is an old version (date is earlier than file in temp1)
  • click IF NEWER button to move the file from temp1 to temp2
  • MC should simply move the file from temp1 to temp2, since temp2 file is newer.  Instead, MC hangs indefinitely, and no file is moved.  I clicked Abort after waiting a long time.
Attached is a portion of my MC File Operations log (2019-07-17-(1032)-FileOperations.log) to help debug "ErrorCode 10":

Please let me know if you are able reproduce the problem as I've described.  I've attached a screenshot of my filesystem core settings, in case that is needed. Thanks once again for a fantastic program which I use daily and cannot live without.  Cheers 🤞

Support and Feedback / Re: tab showing networkfolder resets to c:
« Last post by Mathias (Author) on July 17, 2019, 09:54:41 »
Strange,
Only times MC revert to C: is if it tries to scan a path and it fails to access that path because the device does not exist anymore.
