Support and Feedback / Re: Issue with .bat and robocopy.
« on: July 09, 2014, 07:46:01 »
Did a quick test with Robocopy:
Code: [Select]
robocopy "D:\scans\" "D:\testfolder\" --> error
robocopy D:\scans\ D:\testfolder\ --> ok
robocopy "D:\scans" "D:\testfolder" --> ok
So I think you better use the last one (remove trailing slash only) so that it will work with spaces in the folder names.

Support and Feedback / Re: Deleting temp files gives weird message
« on: January 20, 2014, 13:37:44 »
I tested with deleting all files from C:\Windows\Temp\

If a file is in use I get this in the file operations log:
2014-01-20 13:26:57.084 Deleting to recylebin failed (32 - 32) : C:\Windows\Temp\~DF6A9F1D9DCD0DD133.TMP
2014-01-20 13:26:57.084 File Operations error : 32 (32) -

I click Skip All but the next files in use ask again and put this in the log:
2014-01-20 13:27:04.886 Deleting to recylebin failed (32 - 32) : C:\Windows\Temp\~DF7CFA2B8EC3EFF66B.TMP

2014-01-20 13:27:15.264 File Operations error : 32 (32) -

2014-01-20 13:27:29.770 File Operations error : 32 (32) -

And sometimes when deleting files in use I get Unknown Error : 124 on screen and in the log:
2014-01-20 13:35:09.258 Deleting to recylebin failed (4000 - 124) : C:\Windows\Temp\vmware-SYSTEM
2014-01-20 13:35:09.258 File Operations error : 4000 (124) -

Support and Feedback / Deleting temp files gives weird message
« on: January 20, 2014, 10:05:03 »
I was deleting temp files from c:\users\***\appdata\local\temp\ on Windows 7 x64 with MC 4.0 build 1611 64 bit edition.
Couple of things happened:
- Because some of the files were in use like you would expect, I got the question what to do with these. I choose Skip All but it seemed like MC kept asking me the same question for every file that was in use. So Skip All doesn't seem to work anymore.
- While the delete dialog was on screen, the background changed to Waiting for filesystem scan to finish..... When deleting was done I got the message: Requesting Restarting. but state is 7. do not know what to do.. What does that mean?
- When pressing OK on the delete dialog there was no filelist on screen but only the message  Waiting for filesystem scan to finish..... Refreshing didn't work either at this point.
I can reproduce the multiple Skip All questions but not the other message.

Support and Feedback / Re: Flat View

- Open the Find Files dialog.
- Search for *.*
- Set Sub Levels to All.
Let it search and you get a list with all directories and all the files in all those directories similar to a flat view.

Feature Requests and Suggestions / Re: NEXT Version v4.x (?)
« on: October 11, 2013, 09:47:26 »
Maybe these are more like bugs instead of feature requests but all are UI related:

1) Active tab when closing a tab
Suppose you have 2 tabs open pointing to c:\ and d:\ in that order and c:\ is the active tab. Press Ctrl-T to duplicate the active tab. Then close this newly created third tab. I would expect the c:\ tab to become the active tab again but that is not the case. In practice: when you are doing stuff on a tab and then quickly create another tab to check something or whatever and close this again you have to go looking for your previous active tab.

2) Sort by extension
My explorer panel is always sorted by extension but sometimes when starting MC it reverts back to sorting by name and the little arrow besides Ext is gone. This happens in about 1 in 7 cases but I can't reproduce this on command.

3) Delete progress dialog
Since the new delete progress dialog has been introduced (build 1457) MC switches screens while deleting in a multi-monitor setup. Steps to reproduce this: put MC on the second screen and delete a file. The confirmation dialog also appears on the second screen but the progress dialog and any error dialogs appear on the main screen. This didn't happen with the 'old' delete progress dialog.

Support and Feedback / Crash on Find Files with wrong input
« on: April 22, 2013, 13:35:27 »
I tried to find all *.rul files containing the text 'Some Text' but I was too fast entering the data. As a consequence I put 'Some Text ' in the Look for field and 'C:\Temp\*.rul' in the Look in field (see screenshot). This is not how you are supposed to use these fields but if you press Start with those values entered, MC crashes. Oddly enough, when I try with *.txt or *.sql it doesn't crash.

Since I can reproduce this error a crash dump is available if needed.

Version: Multi Commander v3.1 (build 1385) 64 bit Edition on Windows 7 Professional x64 SP1.

I think potato means you have to clear (empty) the filter field before you can type something. So press Ctrl+F, do Backspace to clear the field, type your filter, return.
But what I'm seeing here is that after pressing Ctrl+F *.* is selected so no need to clear anything. You can just start typing and the *.* will be replaced by the first character you type.

When you move a directory with a hidden file in it, the following message is displayed:
The file '...' is a marked as HIDDEN! It might be an important file
Move it anyway?
But there is only an Overwrite, Overwrite All, Skip, Skip All and a Cancel button present.
It would be more clear if the buttons would be labeled Yes and Yes to All instead of the overwrite buttons.

There is also a typo in the message: The file '...' is a marked... should be The file '...' is marked...' (lose the a).

Version: Multi Commander v2.8.1 (build 1275) 64 bit Edition on Windows 7 Pro x64

Edit: typo

In Menu - Configuration - Core Settings it says FileOpertions progress instead of FileOperations progress.

Support and Feedback / Re: display 0 byte size
« on: January 02, 2013, 11:17:37 »
I support this request. Looks like nothing got calculated or MC doesn't have access to a directory if <DIR> is displayed instead of 0 B for directories that have nothing or only empty subdirectories in it.

Mathias, if you want to try some things, debug the program, log stuff or display some messages to see what's going on in a test version, I will be happy to try it out for you.
I'm a developer myself so I know how hard it is to fix something you can't reproduce yourself.

I noticed the problem with really small files like 2-3 KB or even less than 1 KB in size but further testing shows it also happens with files smaller than 1 MB. It doesn't seem to happen with files bigger than about 1 MB. The smaller the files, the more likely it is the error appears or so it seems.

Beta Releases / 2.8 BETA - Bugs
« on: December 11, 2012, 15:10:57 »
When executing the steps below I sometimes (not all the time) get this error:
Unexpected Error: WriteThread should not be running. But is is... ( ID 3001 )

Steps to follow:
- Copy a bunch of small files from a local hard disk to a network disk using F5 (I could not simulate this copying from a local hard disk to the same local hard disk).
- While it is copying, click Abort.
- Click Yes when the question to abort file copying appears.
- About 1 in 7 times the error appears.
- If the error was displayed then the question to delete an incomplete file is displayed also so I suppose it has something to do with incomplete copied files.

I don't know whether this is specific to the beta version. I installed the beta today and noticed this behavior today also but this could be a coincidence. If it helps, I could try testing in the previous version.

Support and Feedback / Re: What does FocusRect color do?
« on: November 30, 2012, 10:23:50 »
So when using a black background the colors do match exactly but with a white or light yellow background I get these results:

color setting --> color and style of the rectangle on screen
black --> black dotted
red --> teal dotted
green --> violet dotted
yellow --> blue (not dotted)
violet --> green dotted
pink --> black (not dotted)
and so on...

So how can you get the color that you want when using a light background?

Support and Feedback / What does FocusRect color do?
« on: November 29, 2012, 11:06:37 »
Been using Multi Commander for a few days. Trying to determine if it can replace my previous file manager(s).

In Configuration - Explorer Panel settings - Colors - File and Folder state colors, what is the purpose of FocusRect color?
I think this is the rectangle color around the folder or file in focus but changing this color doesn't behave as expected. Am I right about this setting? If so, I will explain the strange behavior. If not, please enlighten me.
