Feature Request: Batch delete for remote file search

#1 Post by bgoo » 2016-01-03 13:54

In the "remote file search" operations window..... A great and powerful addition would be the ability to select all of the files/folders from the search results list and delete them. Currently when I attempt to do this, the pop-up window says "Deleting multiple unrelated directories is not yet supported"

Thanks.

Good to see it's a work-in-progress!

I tried it and the program crashes out every time when attempting to select them and delete. But I understand because it's still very much in testing still.

Thanks for the reply and I look forward to the feature when it's stable.

Do you still experience the crashes in today's (2016-01-04) nightly? If so, and you are using Windows, there should be crashdumps in the %LOCALAPPDATA%/CrashDumps directory. Please submit the latest dump.

Hi. Latest nightly build ... no more crashes or internal error message.

Now when I select multiple directories to delete from the resulting listing in the "remote file search" and right-click "delete" .... it appears retrieve the selected directory list again.... pauses inactive with no server activity... and needs to be "stopped", re-selected and started again. I'm probably not explaining it correctly, but it appears Filezilla is not really sending/completing the delete commands for the selected directories to be deleted or is doing it in a way that I'm unable to watch things actually being deleted with a result code.
