Re: Can not find installed VLC Player (www.videolan.org)

Where do I set this? External Viewers?

Re: 709 - context menu problem?

Maybe this has to do with the 32bit context menu vs the 64bit context menu.
The items can be different in each.

If you right-click, you get one of them;
If you ctrl+right-click you get the other.

Change of Drive During Copy Operation With Pause Failure

Recently I tried to copy a large quantity of files to an external drive using FC's copy action. The drive was getting hot so I paused the copy operation. Then I turned the drive off so it could cool, and left the FC copy operation on pause. When the drive cooled, I turned it back on and unpaused the...

Re: Can't open just ONE folder

Thanks Dreamer, I *think* it's a 1.5TB Seagate - I got it back before I knew what I was doing - but it's been in there for over 5 years with heavy use. I'm replacing it with a 2GB WD Black ($80!). I've gotten most of the stuff I wanted that I had not yet backed up. It's not *completely* dead, but ce...

Re: Can't open just ONE folder

Thanks for your help, y'all - I really appreciate it.

In fact, the HDD is dying.
I'm using Roadkil's Unstoppable Copier to copy the files off of the drive before it completely dies.
I had backups of the other partitions, but I hadn't ran the backup for this partition in a long time, apparently.

Re: Can't open just ONE folder

Well, I thought about that for a bit. I renamed the offending folder and now I can open it just fine. But I still don't know what the matter was. [a minute later...] Okay, I take that back. I could go into the folder *once*. Now FC is ghosted over. [a couple minutes later...] Okay, after about two m...

Can't open just ONE folder

There is this one folder I can't open with FreeCommander for about a week. I can open the folder in Windows Explorer with no problem. In FC I can open the other folders on the same disk (other folders in that same folder) just fine. It's just that one folder. Every time I try to open it in FC, FC gh...

Re: Failure to Copy to Android SD disk

Hi, Dreamer,

I use the FC copy button that I added to the splitter bar.
I never use the function bar at all (and for me F5 is refresh)

Failure to Copy to Android SD disk

I can browse the contents of the "external SD" disk in it's SD drive bay. I can copy a chm file to the disk with Windows Explorer, but when I try to copy a ...

Freezes on Large File Move Between Local Drives

Today I am moving files from one drive to another. The drives are separate HDDs - one is NTFS and the other is formated exFAT, both drives attached via USB3. I am trying to move collections of files adding up to 100GB to 800GB at a time. When I do so, FC freezes (it ghosts white) whilst the move dia...

Re: Freezes on Network Shares

Okay, so the improvements for handling network shares have been wonderful. The cancel button is nice. However, we still aren't out of the evil dark forest. Say I have my laptop on, and on my desktop I browse to the admin share on the laptop. I open a couple of tabs to the laptop's shares. Now I open...

Re: Copy Without Dialogue

My point is that the dialogue flashes, and that if there's not supposed to be any dialogue, having one that flashes and becomes minimized isn't the same as no dialogue - it is a workaround. But at this point in FC's history, I think it would be "polished quality" (that's polish as in really shiny) t...

Re: Copy Without Dialogue

Thanks Dreamer - that did it. It was set to just plain old delete - funny thing I never got a Windows dialogue from that. I always had fc's dialogue. (version 726 x64; I know, I have to update) Okay, so doing it your way shows the dialogue window for a second and a half. Too bad "no dialogue" really...

Re: Copy Without Dialogue

Thanks Ralfso - but that's the confirmation for Windows.

I'm talking about the FC dialogue called "Send to Recycle Bin" with the buttons: Queue, Run, Cancel.
I want to get rid of that one.
