Re: msi files - can't move / delete / rename

Just happened again. With the Prevew pane and Details panes opened, I tried to drag an .msi file from the right pane (j:\users\public\downloads\uncategorized) to a folder in the left pane ("j:\users\public\downloads\android\carbon desktop - helium"). In the right pane the following columns are shown...

Re: msi files - can't move / delete / rename

I'm using the latest Windows 10. I'm going through hundreds of program downloads in J:\Users\Public\Downloads\Uncategorized . The J volume is on an older hard drive that I still have in my desktop system. My C volume from which I boot to Windows is an SSD. The J volume also has an older Windows inst...

Re: msi files - can't move / delete / rename

Later on I was able to rename an MSI file in xplorer2, so it doesn't always happen. I wonder if perhaps if it has something to do with having the details pane or the viewer pane open when the MSI file is highlighted? But hiding these panes does not enable the file to be deleted / renamed / moved. An...

msi files - can't move / delete / rename

I can't move, delete, or rename .msi files in my downloads folder in xplorer2. I get a message that the files are open in xplorer2, but I can't see how they this is so. Any help?

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

Can xplorer2 be made to display the other hard link pathnames for files shown in a pane? In a details pane, or in a scrap container? I know I can use the Links column to display files with >1 link in a scrap container, but is it possible to sort them so that all the hard links for each file are disp...

mass rename tokens - complete list? year, month, day etc?

Does the "$-token help" list in the mass rename wizard show all the available tokens? The only date-related token I see is $D, modification date, and it seems to allow the insertion of the modification date in one format. Is it possible to enter four-digit year, two-digit month, two-digit day as sep...

Re: deskrule won't catalog a mounted Acronis backup file

I tried mounting and cataloging two different .TIB backups of the same HDD volume. When mounted, both .TIBs had the same serial number. When I tried to catalog the second mounted .TIB, I got the message "the storage medium is already in the catalog. do you want to refresh it?" I changed the drive le...

Re: deskrule won't catalog a mounted Acronis backup file

It works! I'll do some experimenting regarding the serial number. I imagine the serial number would be different for each volume which is backed up to a .TIB, but if I have multiple .TIBs for the same volume, the serial number might be the same for all of them?

deskrule won't catalog a mounted Acronis backup file

Acronis True Image backs up volumes to .tib files. I have a .tif file on an external drive. Using Acronis, I mounted such a volume to drive letter K:. When I tried to catalog the K: volume, Deskrule displays the following message "Only removable (external) media can be added in the search catalog, e...

Re: fast search by filename using only MFT?

Yes, that was my experience too - for a search by filename Deskrule was much slower than Everything. looks like for a "filename only" search I'll need to stick with Everything. Maybe Deskrule will be improved in this regard. I have no idea how Everything can be so fast but it is indispensable to me....

user-created custom columns?

Quick question - pardon me for not doing a thorough forum search first. I would like to add a metadata field to my files - example "Purchase Date". I'd like to be able to collect files in a scrap container and then sort them by their "Purchase Date", then scroll through them. The field would not be ...

fast search by filename using only MFT?

Hi, I'm trying out Deskrule 2.0.0.1 trial edition. I've tried a few filename searches, running Deskrule as administrator. I thought this might get Deskrule to search using the MFT, so that I would get results as quickly as I do using Everything. Unfortunately this isn't happening. Deskrule seems to ...

Re: V2 Preview: Some Pictures Have Been Blocked

Has anyone found a way to disable this image blocking ("some pictures have been blocked to prevent the sender" etc.) so that they will show up in the xplorer2 Native preview window? Or any other file previewing program? I have many .htm files that include local .jpg files and I haven't yet found a w...
