Wrong selection restored after deleting from archive (RAR)

Post by *StatusQuo » 2007-09-30, 03:48 UTC

EDIT: This seems to only occur using an external packer (like WinRAR), not with internal ZIP.
The changed archive on the right has to be in the same dir that is displayed on the left.

To reproduce:
  • left panel: go to a normal directory
  • right panel: enter a (RAR) archive (located in the same dir that is displayed in the left panel)
  • copy (add) a single file into the opened archive (left to right)
  • left panel: select some files (in the normal directory)
  • right panel: delete a file from the archive
    (the selection on the left is removed)
  • try to restore the selection on the left with key "/" on the num block
:arrow: The wrong selection is restored, consisting of the 1 file that was previously copied into the archive.
The selection on the left before the file operation (delete from archive) is gone.

Confirmed.

Precondition: Archive is located in the same directory as the selected files. In this case, after time stamp of archive changes, TC refreshes the file panel and selection is lost.

Cannot reproduce this step in 7.03.
Selection on left panel still present...
Rar packer: WinRAR 3.71.

All fixed bugs have been moved to the "Confirmed bugs" section. This problem was too risky to be fixed, it could have dozens of side effects with partial names etc. Therefore I have postponed it to TC 7.5.

I still get this with TC 7.03/WinRAR 3.71.
Did you consider the added precondition (now added in the OP)?

Confirmed now. Looks like TC doesn't remember selection in this case.
