Re: blog: big file management issues

Having just acquired a tablet and installed the first-listed (by popularity) file mgr in the google (why do they call it "play"?) store, I'm glad to see your recommendations of a couple of dual pane ones. I will be checking them out, even while I wish there were an x2 edition for android. (I obvious...

Take a read through section 8 of the User Manual.

Re: Hotkey to toggle between 2 custom font sizes?

Curiously, Neither <Ctrl> '+'/'-' nor <Ctrl>+<scrollwheel> work for me in ed2 (x64), though those accelerators work just fine for other programs (NP++, Chrome, PDF, blah blah blah).

Re: Using Shred on the HD of an XP computer I'm about to ret

What I do with my old drives is remove them from the computer being discarded, perform a low-level reformat on them, and save them for future possible use to repair or augment storage in friends and family computers. If the drive is really old, making grinding noises, or very small capacity (less th...

Re: blog: optimal I/O buffer size

I've never been a fan of putting much significance in sample-of-one demonstrations. What happens with significantly different file sizes? 100K, 10M, 100M?

Re: Still pressing Ctrl-D twice to view subfolder size

Issue is not only for the problematic listview, but also for all other views except details.

Re: Still pressing Ctrl-D twice to view subfolder size

confirmed (thanks for the picture, Robert2). ...
That narrows down the issue to "double Ctrl+D" being needed to show the total folder size in the status bar.
Further fiddling shows this happens when the view style is anything except "details".

Re: Still pressing Ctrl-D twice to view subfolder size

I cannot reproduce the reported behavior running x2 v2.3.0.1 ULT [Unicode] x64 on win7 x64 sp1. Do you mean x86?? x86 is 32 bit and x64 is 64 bit. PS - Nor can I reproduce the reported behavior running 32 bit x2 v2.3.0.1 ULT [Unicode] on 32 bit (x86) win7 sp1. Maybe if you describe your setup in mor...

Re: Talking of improvements requests... (about columns)

Note that Contents [S] only reports the number of items (files and subfolders) directly in a folder, and does not count items in any subfolders.

Re: Forum appearance

It's not the image dimensions of the icon in the imageset. That was OK. It's the compiled html on each page that's forcing the displayed size. It seems when I refreshed the theme, it used default sizes, whereas when it was "converted" from the prior theme, that was taken into account. So I increased...
