Not sure whether this is a bug, but I'm getting this strange behaviour when creating archive:

1. Select several folders
2. Call 'Pack files' dialog
3. Choose options 'Move to archive' and 'Create separate archive, one per selected file/dir'
4. Start packing with built-in packer

After successful run of the packer, I get the folders emptied, but not deleted. The same behaviour was in at least 8.5RC3, but not in other (8.01 and earlier) versions - checked on two different PCs.

Edit
Tried both x64 and x86 version, with current and clean installs, still leaves folders emptied but not deleted

This happens when the new option "leave out base directory when packing folders" is checked. Since the base directory isn't packed, it's not deleted either. I will change it.

This has been fixed a while ago - please test with beta 5!

For 32-bit TC on Vista 32-bit I can confirm that reported issue was present in TC8.5 pb 3, but doesn't present in final releases of TC 8.5 and TC 9 except for following situations:
1) TC's "Move to archive" function still doesn't remove the folders with read-only attribute (and inner files with r-o attribute).
2) TC's "Move to archive" function still doesn't remove the folders and inner files if that folders have restricted acces rights (may be reproduced on the subfolders of %programfiles% on Vista).
Since both mentioned issues are not limited just to the "Create separate archive, one per selected file/dir" option, maybe it's better to make a new separate bugreport for each of mentioned issues?

I don't think that I should change that. Read only is there for a reason...

Move to archive If this option is checked, the files are deleted after a successful packing operation.
If TC knows that packing operation was successful and archive was made why at the end of delete operation for regular files/folders also not to ask user for confirmation to remove the source folders/files with read-only attribute or those with elevation requirement to be removed?
