tc creates folders before copy files into

Post by *Michael REMY » 2016-08-04, 09:19 UTC

hi,

i was copying a bunch a folders.
i just did the parent folder copy (the one with all the folders) from my C drive to my usb drive.

i have no enough free space during the copy.
so i looked at into the last folder and i notice TC create a lot of empty folders...

so i guess TC created all the folders before copy the files into them ?

why did it not create one folder one by one , instead of recreate all the folders empty ?
i'm an old long user of TC since the windows 3.11 release !, for the history, i came to tc when i migrate from amiga commodore to PC where they are diskmanager and directory opus there.

I think TC created folders before copying each file but copying of files failed so folders were left created.

Yes, it's because of the two step copying when some operations fail, so TC can ask at the end.

so, it means the creation's date of each folder is fake (no relevant) .
