MC doesn't update drives in minimized to tray state
« on: January 15, 2014, 07:11:34 »
Hi again.
This time I plugged in an usb stick when MC was minimized to tray. After I restored MC, I couldn't find my USB device either in the panel or in combobox. Opening my cmputer in win explorer didn't help, refreshing tab didn't help. Entering G: to the adress line opens the device, but still it doesn't appear anywhere.

Yes I know..
Problem is that MC depends on Windows to notify MC when devices are inserted/removed. But when MC is minimize to tray there is no active window that Windows can send that message to. 
you can type ":rdrive" in the commandline bar to refresh drives.

Maybe it should be done automatically after restoring from tray?
