Metadata (tags) not transferred with TeraCopy handler

Post by transcend »

If TeraCopy handler is used on a cut/copy operation, metadata (tags) associated with the file are not transferred. It would be nice if XYplorer waited for the external copy to finish, verified that the files were successfully copied/moved, and then copied or transferred the metadata (tags) to the new file.

Same goes for folders as well I suppose.

The chance that this gets implemented... Educated guess: 1%

Use XY's (custom) copy handler...

Figured it was worth asking since XYplorer supports TeraCopy decently.

It just starts it as an external process. It's not aware of what it's doing internally and if something fails or not. You'd put your tags at risk if this would be supported...
