Imagine, you're using the FutureOS Desktop and want to work with drives and files...

Out of curiosity: Would it be desirable to automatically read the Directory of a disc as soon as one clicks at a drive letter?
Please let me know your preference.  :)


Hi GUNHED
Seasons Greetings

It works well now, but haven't uploaded yet, because I thought to wait until the next release. Hope this is ok, else I can upload the English version for normal CPC soon :) Just let me know :-)

Ah, glad you have taken over from TFM and continue his OS. I do not use it, but I am very oldfashioned ... PARADOS is on the edge of to modern for me :)

GUNHED took over all of TFM's stuff. Projects, obligations ...biological functions...


It's almost like the only difference between them is the name!  :laugh:

One of the new functions is the Auto-DIR function. Now you can:


1. Click at an drive icon and the DIRectory will be loaded and displayed immediately. This way is will load the DIR's twice when tagging two drives for example.


2. Click at all the drives you want to work with, then click at the DIR icon (to load all directories). This is the way like it was before.


Which way to you prefer?
