Using Windows 7 and Total Commander 9.0 and 9.0a RC2.

(i only have the german.chm file at my system, hopefully i can make a good english report without the englisch one)

I vould like to copy/move dierctories with "only files of this type" and omitting empty directories (do not create empty directories)

I have a directory (d:\testsrc) with a directory tree of three directories and files of the type .doc .txt and .exe in it.

now i copy it to the empty d:\testdest which already exists and use
*.txt *.doc
as "only files of this type"

The result is as i expected. (all .txt and .doc files are copied some directories are empty, which does not have .txt or .doc files.

Now the same with move, the result is as i expected.

Now i try to omit the empty directories and do a copy:
*.txt *.doc|**\
(interesting i did not get it working with my real files). With my real files nothing is copied. It works only, if i define and save a selection "*.txt *.doc" with the name "text". And using
>text|**\
)

Now the reproducable error:
*.txt *.doc|**\
with move and get an error message:
Error cannot write d:\testdest\test1.doc
Please remove the write protection!

With different drive letter for source and destination it seems to work. Also if the files at the destination already exists (and overwrite)

I many boards you can not see what changed, if you edit your own post. If i edit my own post, i have to mark what i changed and i had to edit dates and times to make clear what i changed. It is much easier to reply to my own post, so anyone can see the history.

Indeed currently **\ is only supported when copying - it does work when moving between drives because this is essentially copy+delete. I will fix it.
