Re: Dealing with many files and folders.

Well, it seems at some point in time the imbeciles were interested in fire, the internet, cars, whatever... just the way it is... sometimes you just have to kick their ass in to using it so they realize how good it is. I mean, what do you expect?

Dealing with many files and folders.

I have about 10M files(probably more)(about 20TB worth of stuff from music, science, programming, etc). The biggest problem I've been running in to lately is just dealing with the tree view. What happens is that over time as I open folders they will persist and remain open. I usually want this becau...

Re: Searching ends up in loop

Thanks. I don't mind about the tree so much since I'm in control. You could just not list the folder a second time though(should be same check code so copy and paste). Also, maybe you could add a "search junctions too" checkbox like folder links(when I check it the junctions are not searched). It wo...

Re: Searching ends up in loop

Ok, it is "follow junctions" in the search options in prefs...

You probably forgot to add the check to that or did it recently?

I believe I enabled that a while by when I changed the search caching... and that is about when I started having the issue. Without it checked it works as expected.

Re: Searching ends up in loop

I just use the ones that XYplorer gives me. I copy the folder(using copy) then I paste special. Almost always it is a junction.

Searching ends up in loop

I have some links in folders and when I search XYplorer is ending up in an endless search loop. e.g., C:\A\B\A\B\A\B\A\B\A\B\A\B\A... XYplorer should be easily able to detect loops like this and avoid them. This is with follow links checked and unchecked... I don't remember it doing this before and ...

Re: Stop researching

Ok, it seems to work. I had to increase the numbers. Is there any way to keep the cache? I have about a million files I regularly have to search and it would be nice if I could have it retain the cache at all times unless I specify it to clear it(even after searching other locations). I rarely chang...

Stop researching

If I do a long search(millions of files) and I move away from the search tab and then go back it will start over. Even if it is in the middle. If it has finished it will still research even if I just left the tab. Is there any way to stop this behavior? I don't want xyplorer to try to outsmart me. I...

highly recent changes

I do a lot of moving files around and I have to rename things. It becomes problematic because I don't know what I just copied(to many names to remember). What would be really nice is any files that I recently copied to a new directory were highlighted. All that has to be done is when, say, the last ...

Pinned explorer always showing up

For some reason, after upgrading(I think, it has only started to happen in the last few months), xyplorer will pin itself to the task bar. I think it's xyplorer at least. I cannot remove the pin(RMB does nothing) and have to delete registry entries in Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Wi...

Search "all locations"

Sometimes I just need search all the locations for a file or folder. I have to enter in every drive on my system, which is about 20. The drop down will remember a few but eventually I'll have to re-enter all the drives. It would be nice if xyplorer would have a "all drives" check box or, say accept ...

Custom Sort

It would be nice to be able to very quickly sort files in a directory based on a custom sort. It could be expressed using regex or some other simple language.

I'm thinking of a simple text entry box that can accept an expression to sort(or even search with a simple toggle).

Profiles!

The ability to specify profiles where all settings are saved per profile... The reason: I used XYplorer in different contexts depending on what I'm currently working on.
