Re: blog: filename juggling

Have used this very useful renaming feature of x2 for years already. :-)

Though if you use $0001 $N instead it's also very reversible since you can always remove the first digits with another renaming app or extension (at least as long as x2 doesn't support this feature).

Re: Ease of keyboard navigation

I don't like ribbons either. But I like Ross' observation and suggestion. I almost always navigate with keyboard. So I've encountered this "half-selected" phenomenon often and wondered about it. Though I also think the first entry should be selected normally when entering a folder there's the same p...

Re: How to disable "filter" box?

Ironically, of course, the whole point of it was to eliminate the silly repetitive pressing of the same key over and over to find things - but to each their own. :wink: This may be true. But for me it interfered with (quick) selecting files with Ctrl-Space so much sending it as spaces in the filter...

Re: "Cannot find registry information for xplorer2_UC...

I've meant to mention it for ages but was reminded by this thread now.

Wouldn't it be practical if x2se would not only close x2 but offer to start it up again after the settings are done and the editor is closed? Especially in the portable situation and when working on other computers with it?

I'm going to turn off the filter box as well since I haven't had a use for it in the last couple of weeks, but mainly because there's an annoying quirk I consider a bug (so this is a bug report, too, Nikos): When I'm quickly selecting files with the keyboard with Ctrl-Space every 5 or 6 selections (...

It's when you move/copy a file to a target that doesn't exit (yet) by typing the destination into the dialogue box.

@discgolfer The renaming tools discussion is a recurring one and almost everything has been said at some place, so this is just a repetition. There are so many utilities for renaming, most of them good, you can choose your pick. I'd recommend searching for some old discussions. My recommendation tho...

@ x2user - In practical terms a hardlink is a entry in the Master File Table (MFT) that points to where the data is stored, all files have at least one hardlink, a so called hardlink is just another entry in the MFT pointing at the same data. Do you know if the entry in the MFT can be read and used...

but you would have to type the folder name in HERE field, wouldn't you? I don't see much difference between this and creating the folder with F8 beforehand!? There's quite a difference. I think you underestimate the sum of repetitive tasks coming with big amounts of filehandling. I often use the he...

Hi RightPaddock, I'm using hardlinks extensively, too. And I don't have a solution for your specific problem. But do you know a little tool called dupemerge? http://schinagl.priv.at/nt/dupemerge/dupemerge.html It's a command line utility to detect identical files and hardlink them. It works great an...

If you're looking for reassigning (and not hiding), I recently have found another freeware gem (if you like to use the command line). It's a command line program called remount and you can very easily reassign and even swap drive letters. I prefer it over clicking through disk management etc. Try it...

I'm talking about the olive, military (and pukey) looking background colors as well behind the word xplorer² as behind the word home.
