FC uses Windows Explorer to explore broken folder shortcuts

#1 Post by Forez » 24.06.2018, 14:48

How to repeat this bug [or illogical user unfriendly behavior]

1] Create in the same folder folders TEST-1, TEST-2, TEST-3, TEST-4

2] Place folder TEST-2 in folder TEST-1

3] Create a shortcut in form of a LNK file to the folder TEST-2 and place it in folder TEST-3

4] Move folder TEST-2 from folder TEST-3 to folder TEST-4

5] Re-enter folder TEST-3 and follow the link to folder TEST-2

What happens? A window of the Window Explorer opens up, showing the TEST-2 folder residing in TEST-4 folder


Why does FreeCommander cedes the task of opening the folder to third party software? Apparently it is able to find the moved folder [by somehow coping with a broken link] but is reluctant to open it? Where is the logic in that?
