Re: Branch view - implicit secondary/tertiary sort on path

Then why would I be asking for it? :(

Opening 60 folders in "Branch view", filtering on one particular filename, sort on it, and the paths seem to be in random order.

Re: One flipping as 'ell annoying thing

That works, thanks, but why does it only happen to this one particular folder, when I have many others containing "last used subfolders"?

One flipping as 'ell annoying thing

I've got one directory, nothing special, containing 57 files and additional directory. However, every flipping time I open it, XY puts the focus on the one directory, and that's at the very bottom of the screen. What can be the cause of this, it only happens for this one folder, and how do I stop it?

Re: Hide CD / DVD drives

Well, at first it appeared a bit like bloat to me, but thinking about it, CDs are now what Floppies have been 20 years ago, right? Pretty obsolete! So, yes, there should be a way to hide those drives. I did not use mine in at least 5 years I think. I rip newly bought CD's, no streaming for me, I li...

Right-click drag & drop / Configure Backup Operations

Can you please add an option to only backup modified files, like when doing "xcopy /a". Preferably not "/m" as that would screw up making backups to two (external) disks, because yes, that nice big single 6Tb disk you use for all your backups will fail at the most inopportune moment...

WinRAR - remarkable service

Among the few programs I've ever paid for is WinRAR (Others? The ones I can readly think of? Obviously XY, several versions of IDA Pro, Vern Buergs's "List Enhanced" (sadly not the server version), and something, long ago superseded by VLC, to transcode AVI files to MP4 ones). My rarkey.reg file dat...

Leave a bit of space next to the rightmost tab...

...so that you can CEA open a new tab by double clicking on it. Probably 10 pixels (or maybe even 5) would do the trick. Of course Ctrl-T also does it, but with the "T" in the middle of the keyboard, that's relatively speaking, harder than a double click.

Working with VHD files

After having tried sharing disks (and miserably failing) between a VirtualBox PC DOS VM and W7-64 using about all the methods suggested on the various forums, I just discovered this little gem, VHD Attach , which makes attaching VHD (Virtual Hard Disk) files a one-click operation.

Re: Filetype icon changed, changed back, but not in XY

In the end I actually had to shut down Windows, which made me a rather unhappy bunny, as that also meant shutting down my z/OS system.

Anyway all is well again.

[Solved] Filetype icon changed, changed back, but not in XY

I accidentally tried to open a .VMDK file using WinRAR, forgot to unclick the "Always open" checkbox, and that changed the file icon to that of WinRAR. Eventually managed to reset it using NirSoft's FileTypesMan, but the new(= original) icon refuses to show up in XY (where I still see the WinRAR one...
