Support and Feedback / Re: Issue with copy to existing file
« on: May 07, 2022, 11:55:38 »
What copy should do depends and veryies depending on person..

There are many ways to copy files in MC and some of them are not handled by MC but by Windows. and some bypass some stages.
so first,  How do you copy the file .. copy paste ? using copy button or hotkey ? or Drag and drop ? other ?  some modes does not allow you to start a copy to and from same path

If you want to replace x:\temp\file.txt with x:\temp\file_bak.txt you can do drag and drop and drop file_bak.txt on file.txt and you are asked via a popup menu if you want to copy and replace or move and replace

I cannot reproduce that.
Not sure why it does not work. MC is not doing anything it self with bitlocker. All that is handled by Windows.

No you cannot customize icons. But in the Favorites Window you can configure lots of favorites and they are then found under FAV: in the virtual filesystem. FAV: is found in the DropDown and tree and other places.

Hidden/System files are shown in the tree, is it also hidden in the list panel ?

also check C:\Windows\SysWOW64\ 
That folder is shown as the System32 folder for 32bit application on 64bit OS

Some security software can hook it self into Windows to prevent files/folders from being shown for 3rd party application. But normally they are hidden even in the shell as well. (WinExplorer)

It is how Windows works. I guess \\WSL$ is some sort of fake device. that is not exposed with normal network APIs

Not sure what \\WSL$ is exposed as, Might be a Windows Shell only thing.
If it was a normal network thing it should be found in network device.

Support and Feedback / Re: Possible bug (?) related to file colors
« on: March 12, 2022, 13:17:55 »
Yes might be a bug for Readonly for the simple coloring
You can use the Rules based file coloring is much more powerful and allow for more control.

Store edition is a bit late. I been very busy, But it should be updated this month

In ThumbnailDetails mode all other columns you add will also be shown

I created DumpFile according to your instruction from documentation using TaskManager but...While uploading I obtained such a message: Sorry, there was a problem uploading your file. Storage is low on free disk space
Wops.. ok I will fix that

You can queue multiple delete operations

Menu > Configuration > Core Settings > FileSystem (tab)
check option at the top.. change delete to Ask / or Add to existing queue

UserMenu.xml is not needed.
It stores the information for user added menus and commands in the menu.. If you have not added anything there, There is no configuration of that to load.
So it must be something else. Is a crash dump sent ? was a dialog shown with a CrashID ? if it was then I can look up the crash report manually and check

You should be able to get size, but onedrive can be configured in different way depending on version and OS.
But it depends on how you set it up. If there is symlinks or junctions link for folder these will not be followed when getting size (since it can resolve into a loop and never end.)
On Win10, If "file on demand" is active. Then it will show the size of all files even if they are not synced to disk yet and are tagged as offline.

I'm not able to reproduce that

It in on all locations or just on some location ? It the folder some sort of filesystem link ?

That will not be possible. Also the buttons with text are to big for that.
However a "maybe" I got on my list is to have for a column of icons there between the panels.

Right click on the filter icon at the bottom of the Explorer Panel.
There you can enable options of you want filters to auto reset, and if they should be remembered when returning to folder you set filter for

« on: February 18, 2022, 14:45:23 »
Most part should work.
But some parts have changed how settings are stored. And some auto conversion from old to new format are removed after a couple of version.
So If you really want to be safe.  Download old version from website. and go forward one major version at the time.

Or just backup you settings and try.  Most settings around UI configuration things have not been changed. I think..

and the reverse if you are standing in right panel.

Support and Feedback / Re: Rename and save
« on: January 30, 2022, 15:10:36 »
I'm not able to reproduce that.

If a file in MC is renamed, but not renamed on disk. Then when MC asked Windows to renamed it. It returned saying everything was successful.
You can check the filesystem log (Ctrl+L) if there are any errors, But I do not think there is, then MC would not update the view with the new name.

Thing is that the filesystem on Windows will allow a rename / delete to be successful, report back to application saying everything was fine.. The app is now removing/renaming that item from view.
But then finds in a later stage that it cannot do it because of some weird reason because some low level stuff prevented it, or have already access to that file. or some process got access to the file while it was happening.
But this is very unique and special situation where this is happening.

Also doing it over network to network devices running other filesystem can cause issues where they do not always report an error if the operation fails. Also some network filesystem
will not do a rename if only the name is the same. and only character cases are changes..

So when is it happening for you. Only when you use "capitalize" function in tools. ? What if you do a manual rename ? Local disk or Network ?
Does it work sometimes ? only on some location or everywhere ?

There is no settings to remove it. Since some copy settings and extra copy features only can be set from there, And not showing it prevents that.
Just pressing return key will confirm dialog and close it.

But you can create a new copy command by create a new UserDefinedCommand and use the MC.EXPLORER.COPY command with NODIALOG option
Then assign that command to a hotkey

In the CopyTo dialog you get when starting a copy operation just and enter a filter, You adding a exclude filter by adding "-" at the beginning of it. So a filter of "-*.*" will exclude all files and only copy the folders.
Just make sure the option "do not copy/move empty folders" are checked
