[9.0a] Unstoppable space calculation before deletion

Post by *MVV »

When I press Shift+Del on some folder, TC enumerates inner files/folders for second progress bar before displaying delete confirmation, and Escape allows breaking this process. But Escape or Cancel button in progress dialog don't work in latest TC version, so I had to kill TC when I've tried to delete a dir with 730k files because it was impossible to stop calculation.

Bug detected in TC 9.0a x32/64, tested with clean INI too; older versions since TC 9.0b15 have this bug too, however TC 9.0b12 doesn't have it.

Not confirmed, ESC works fine here. Tested with both TC 32-bit and 64-bit.

Sorry, I wasn't absolutely correct, I was talking about second confirmation (remove non-empty dir confirmation) and overall delete process: while TC calculates files, delete process can't be cancelled with both Escape and Cancel buttons.

Sorry, I probably still don't understand your report. You still say that "while TC calculates files, delete process can't be cancelled", but I have no problems to do exactly that.

Can you give me more detailed instructions, please?

You can e.g. try to Shift+Delete Windows directory: while TC calculates files, Cancel button does nothing (I can press it multiple times with no result), and process may only be aborted when calculation is finished.

Hmm, ESC works immediately here. I need to press "Cancel" twice, though, to cancel the operation.

Strange that it works fine for you because I can reproduce it at any time with clean INI in TC 9 (Escape does nothing until TC calculates files) and it works fine in TC 8 (Escape cancels calculation immediately).

I had the same problem.

A directory with lots of subdirs and files on a network drive.
I press shift+del. Tcmd asks whether I want to delete that directory. I press yes. Tcmd shows a dialog with "seeking" and starts counting those files.

When i press "Cancel" tcmd doesn't stop.
When i press "pause" tcmd pauses the counting but when I press then on "Cancel", tcmd starts again seeking files ? After having pressed "cancel" the number of found files increases and decreases ?

tcmd 9.0a (x64)
