Portable Devices - File name errors

When transferring files to portable devices (cell phone), I'm still frequently getting errors of the type: "The file name you specified is not valid or too long. Specify a different file name". After clicking Cancel, XY crashes about half the time. Transferring the same file via Explorer has no prob...

Re: XY hangs when disconnecting dead network drives

How very odd, because that certainly doesn't describe what I see. When I try to disconnect a dead network drive, XY is completely non-responsive. About 10-20 seconds in, the disconnect dialog box pops out into its own taskbar object, but both it and XY are still nonresponsive. I have no choice but t...

Re: XY hangs when disconnecting dead network drives

I'll have to test it out, but I expect it will be the same, given that it's an API call. However, I also don't expect Explorer to optimize anything. So to go back to my earlier question, do you think this is something that will lend itself to running gracefully in a worker thread? Or do you feel it'...

Re: XY hangs when disconnecting dead network drives

Okay, so let's say that you're mapping a shared folder on another machine. You map this shared folder to a drive letter. While the second machine is on, you can disconnect the drive at any time, and it will occur instantly. However, if you turn off that second machine first, you'll still have your m...

Re: XY hangs when disconnecting dead network drives

Is it possible to spawn a worker thread for the api call so that it doesn't cause XY to hang? Or will it hang any and all file managers until it's complete?

Re: XY hangs when disconnecting dead network drives

A network share is periodically mapped to a drive letter. However, if the network share goes offline, certain actions in XY (such as a general refresh) causes XY to hang. If I unmap the drive letter while it's still up, it unmaps instantly. But if the share is down, unmapping causes XY to hang for s...

Re: Column settings not remembered for portable devices

Of course, right after I post this, on my next attempt, my settings are remembered.

If this is a one time glitch, then just ignore this. :)

Column settings not remembered for portable devices

XY is not remembering column layouts and settings for portable devices. (Tested on v15.10.0010.)

I can save and restore a column layout, but settings such as size and date column formats don't get restored. Regardless, all of this should be remembered as occurs for all other areas within XY.

XY hangs when disconnecting dead network drives

For a while now, XY hangs for several minutes when disconnecting (unmapping) a network drive that's no longer online. I saw the change log notes regarding network resources and hoped that it would address this, but "Pre-check availability of servers" does not fix this. Is there some other setting th...

Re: Better RegEx Support

I love this idea. If it proves to be possible and doable, then we could write a petition to the "Regex Guy" (Jan Goyvaerts - http://www.just-great-software.com/ ) and ask him to write an external regex module hookable into XY. I'd gladly pay for that. Oh, now you have me salivating. But that being ...

Oooo, that sounds lovely. If that's done, there should be a link on the site for a trusted package that works with this feature out of the box.

Re: Better RegEx Support

I would love moving to PCRE. The Javascript flavor of RegEx is limited in some unfortunate ways.

Ouch. Yes, I've had that happen to me as well. It's quite painful.

Re: Support for Portable Devices

1. Yes, it appears that some devices behave like read-only. No error message available. I can repro the same behavior here with Explorer. Ah, but that limitation doesn't exist in Explorer. I can delete files just fine through Explorer. It's only XY that it doesn't seem to work for. 2. Hmm, I don't ...
