Re: Reading subfolders... (ESC to abort)

Thank you for including that. I think it's a significant improvement in usability (at least for me, I hope for others, too).

Re: Reading subfolders... (ESC to abort)

OK. Of course I can live with that (like so far). But isn't the idea to "size up" just the selected folders an improvement you'd consider to implement?

Re: Reading subfolders... (ESC to abort)

The same problem applies to the Ctrl-D command though if you use it for a folder in the root folder of nowaday's big harddisks with lots of subfolders and files. I often only need the size of one or a few folders (automatical calculation disabled), but have to wait quite a time for x2 to finish the ...

Re: hard links - info about other hard links to same files?

Oh, that's nice. That has been a longstanding request of mine and I actually came to the forum just now to ask about it again. I've also used the link shellextension so far and made a very simple little autohotkey script which displays the hardlinks copies them to the clipboard and pastes them into ...

Re: Pane colors - active vs inactive

I'd like to have the same background colour (grey) for the name column and the rest of the columns for the inactive pane. Where do I find the settings for that?

Personally I don't need a restart button in x2. But I often think the advanced settings editor really could offer to start x2 again after you're finished with the settings.

Re: load file list into scrap

Baring in mind that it only works for the locatable objects you could use try a workaround I used a couple of times. I copy the paths of the files in the scraps to the clipboard with alt-c and paste them in a textfile. For reimport you can copy them from the text file again and use the import from c...

Re: good renamer

Nice, Nikos. My 2 cents: Keep the current functions of the mass renamer. I like some of the $ uses of x2 better than the equivalents in dedicated file renamers. I don't think you can program the renamer efficient without trying some mass renaming yourself. You should set a tasklist with some more or...

Re: How to save all the names of JPG files?

Jumping into the discussion late, but why not simply do a search in x2 for *.Jpg with additional rule "path contains VK" and copy the results from the scrap pane into an editor?

Re: Load time of inital load of X2Pro extremely slow (5 minu

Well, no, ESC didn't help. Does it ever when you get the "blue circle" and the message "no response" (or whatever is the English equivalent to the German "Keine Rückmeldung")? The tree is never activated in my x2. Will check next chance if the drive bar makes a difference, but doubt it. BTW, I forgo...

Re: Load time of inital load of X2Pro extremely slow (5 minu

I had a similar problem with a networked USB drive with Win 8.1. X2 not only took minutes (more than 5) to respond again - I've really come to dislike this blue circle which replaced the sandclock - but it also happened when this wasn't a start folder or in one of the panes. x2 just randomly stopped...

Re: Scrap operations

Is there any way to view a scrap window in a pane of the main program. I often wish I could use inter-pane functions such as F5 and F6 to copy and move, or Alt/Enter to open a folder shortcut's referenced folder in the opposite pane etc. Correctly NIkos hinted to the miniscrap. Sadly Nikos also ign...

Re: .tib-files (Acronis True Image)

I'm steering a bit OT, but for anybody getting fed up with Acronis and is looking for good alternatives I'd like to recommend a not-so-well-known application, I've been using for years now, which never failed me and I more or less consider the x2 of backup programs. It doesn't advertise much, usuall...
