Deleted folders are not removed from the tree in 20.90.0300

Post by elqasar2 » 18 May 2020 01:36

Lately I've found that whenever I delete folders in the list, they are not removed from the tree. Even when I press F5 the deleted folders remain visible in the tree. Only when I press F4 (Refresh Tree) is the tree updated and the deleted folders removed. I am using locked tree and version 20.90.0300 and Windows 10.

Code: Select all

v20.70.0018 - 2020-02-10 14:24
    * View | Refresh (F5): From now on the List only is refreshed when the focus 
      is in the list. Before, this command always refreshed Tree and List 
      regardless of the focus.
      To return to the old behavior you can use this tweak:
        RefreshListOnly=0
Why the folder is not removed from your tree in the first hand is another question. There are many variables. I'd prefer to go after this in the up-coming 64-bit version...

Don, I really hope you can fix this. I am having the same issue with 20.80+. Folders deleted from the list remain in the tree. Thanks for pointing out the tweak.

Thanks for letting me know about the tweak. That will help a bit in the meantime. As it may be some months before the new 64 bit version is ready, it is a pity this can't be fixed until then. :cry: I have to keep remembering to manually refresh now in order to make the tree update.

Okay, I will look at it now.

- Is this Mini Tree or Maxi Tree?
- You delete the folders in the list using the DEL key?
- Does it depend on the number of folders deleted?
- Is this permanent delete or Recycle Bin?
- Which Windows version?

Maxi Tree, Locked.
Yes, I delete the folders using the Delete key.
Normally just 1 or 2 folders I delete at a time.
Permanent delete (Shift+Delete).
Windows 10 1909.

Don, your support of XY is beyond reproach. Thank you so much for fixing the folder issue in beta 0401. So far it is working and I will post if I run across situations that don't work.
