ScanDir beta 1.3.3 build 1030

ScanDir beta 1.3.3 build 1030 can be downloaded for testing from the ScanDir website.

This update of ScanDir contains fixes for known problems in previous versions and one major change compared to version 1.3.2: the drive selection box has been removed and all drives are now grouped under ‘This PC’ in the directory tree. The main advantage of this new tree structure is that all drives can be scanned at once. A potential disadvantage is that some operations may take longer to complete.

Use the directory context menu (right-click in Dir.Tree) to access the directory tree:

    • Scan: start Scan from selected directory. When ‘This PC’ is selected, all folders on all drives are scanned. *WARNING* ‘Scan: This PC’ may last VERY long!
    • Refresh: Rebuild the directory from the selected directory. Changes in the folder structure made by other programs become visible.
    • Expand all: Expand all folders under the selected directory. *WARNING* ‘Expand all’ for ‘This PC’ may take up to half an hour and cannot be aborted!
    • Collapse all: Collapse all folders under the selected directory.

Updates:
+ Added: All drives are grouped in Dir.Tree under ‘This PC’.
+ Added: Set User Font restored (Configuration | Advanced).
+ Added: Select file size: Bytes/Kbytes/MBytes/GBytes.
+ Added: Additional log messages.
+ Fixed: Shift+U and Shift+D to move (re-order) entries in item list.
+ Fixed: USB drives did not show in Copy/Move dialog.
+ Fixed: Multiple Rename “Reply: Yes to All” messages.
+ Fixed: Source directory not deleted after “Move Directory”.

Q&A: The difference between Bookmarks and Files list.

The ScanDir main menu has the option to add and maintain Bookmarks (Ctrl+B). The Item list context menu has the option “Add to Files to File list”. Selected files appear under the Files tab.

Q: What is the difference between “add to bookmarks” and “add to File list” ?

A: Bookmarks can only contain Directory or Folder entries, the File list can contain both Directory and file entries.

Bookmarks are accessed and managed through the main menu, the File list is accessed and managed through the [FILES] tab.
