NotContentIndexed attribute: Bug when renaming file and folder

Post by *liamZ »

I found this behaviour on Windows 10 and 7 with Total Commander 9.22a:

Changing the name of a file or a folder with the NotContentIndexed attribute enabled within TotalCommander removes the NotContentIndexed attribute.
Changing the name with windows explorer does not reset the attribute.

This probably happens because TC sets the "archive" attribute when renaming. Try setting
SetArchiveBitOnRename=0
in wincmd.ini under [Configuration].

Strangely, other attributes like "compressed" don't seem to be affected...

Hi. I tried SetArchiveBitOnRename=0 but does not work for me.

I also noticed that moving a file/folder to a new folder (that has NotContentIndexed=1) in the same drive also resets the index attribute. But moving to another drive works fine.

The problem exists only if I rename a file using Shift+F6 or Right-Click => Rename.
If I select Right-Click => Properties => General Tab and change the filename in text box, then NonContentIndex checkbox (in Advanced Attributes) is left empty.

Tha is because that is calling a Windows function - TC does not do this for you.

It proves that Total Commander has a bug when users rename files using Shift+F6 or Right-Click => Rename.

I can confirm the behavior, but I didn't check if SetArchiveBitOnRename changes anything about it.

I can confirm this fix. Tested renaming the file with of NotContentIndexed attribute with Shift+F6 and MultiRenameTool in Total Commander 9.50 beta 5 on Vista 32-bit, the attribute is not lost in both cases.
