Naming of CRC files of directories with dot

Post by *Damel » 2015-09-04, 22:07 UTC

If I'm creating a CRC file of directory which has a dot in name, it is offered and created a CRC file with name consisting of only characters before the last dot. It makes problems especially when the directories varying only in characters after the last dot. Please don't handle with names of directories like with file names (symbols after last dot are not extensions).

Examples:
file.2015.01.ext
file.2015.02.ext
->
file.2015.01.crc
file.2015.02.crc
All OK

[dirname.2015.01]
[dirname.2015.02]
->
dirname.2015.crc
error >Overwrite: dirname.2015.crc<
The best solution:
1. format C:
2. install TotalCmd
3. install Windows (optionally)

This has been changed in TC9, but not backported to TC 8.52.

Report from the TC9 Final testing:
- putting of CRC files for DIRs into DIRs is clever solution, thanks! ("Create separate checksum files for each directory" was selected)
- there is still that "not nice thing" with extensions in DIR name... not your fault, so characters behind last dot are not in CRC file name of directory ([Test.DIR.01] -> Test.DIR.crc file), extension in CRC-file name for DIRs (and only for DIRs!!!) will be IMHO better (Test.DIR.01.crc)

Change the name manually to
c:\directoryname\*.*.sha

Then TC will append the extension to the full path, and also keep the option for later.
