Sure as "instead of" but first this feature should be tested if it's suitable.

It depends on your "working style" or desired level of control.
 
Part of my all-original-FutureOS-philosophy was to give total control to the user. Therefore the OS does nothing by itself, so nothing happens that screws up your plans. For example: You can get a disc out, write a new file-name on it, and put it back into the drive. The OS will not bother you with reading the DIR again (as long as you don't click DIR again).
 
Now, if you want the "Rundrum-Sorglos-Paket", the uehm.... baby-sitting option, then the OS can make your life way more easy by caring about that stuff. So you can put discs in or get them out and the OS will automatically detect it and adjust the DIR buffering, so it always reflects the current state. However you don't have total control any longer.
 
So I suppose a bit-switch which allows to switch between the two modis.

If the user can remove and replace a disk, won't the system corrupt a disk if the wrong disk is put back in?

Yes, if you replace a disc, then you have to click the DIR icon again.

As I thought, if the user mistakenly puts the wrong disk in, the OS will corrupt the disk when it next writes to the disk.

Well, even a newbie knows that he/she has to read the DIRectory again after changing the disc. It's clearly stated in the handbook and other guides. So the chance that this happens in reality is quite small.
 
Now, the discussed feature of the auto-disc-detect would alter this. Any disc put into a drive would be treated as new disc (if new or not).
 
 
I never intended to make my OS foolproof. I leave that to Windows(-like) OS. Regarding their customers, they may need it more  :P :laugh: ;)  (Never mind, I have to use windows too at work).

Auto-DIR for clicked drives is a nice idea.
 
Well, since it's FutureOS ( :-X ) I think it's even better to Auto-DIR as soon as you put a disc in a drive  :) 
 
This way you don't even have to click the drive icon any longer, but the Desktop (drive icons) will show you what's going on  :)

You could "enable" (change the colour) of the A and B when a disk is in the drive, that would be cool.

Yes, that will be a part of it. Well, not the color, but the icon.

It was implemented in my icon sets... sadly the coder did not followed. ;D

we're talking about mode2... "coulour" (or even color, oder farben, ou couleurs, or whatever...(where is my spanish cow or my greek goat ? ;) )) is not a feature here...

Phase IV Protocol activated.
FutureOS AI took over.

Due to a lack of human ressources the FutureOS AI in the FutureSoft outpost New Orleans took over control.

Suggestions of humans in this database have been considered.

Possible solutions will be presented as soon as verified.

Well, in my opinion, "get your disc off" sounds rather rude, with lots of sexual connotations! "Please eject the disc" sounds much better.
Exactly, it should be something like "Please remove the disc".

Bryce.

Well, gentlemen, thanks for your help. I used the latter message, files have been updated.

owww com'on... we're beyond that, it's no more the commercial era of CPCs...

We're not as shy as we used to be when close to a running CPC... And we have that bit of humor I hope.

That is really cool. Having a background screen on FOS makes such a difference. With custom icons it look even better :)

As said, just send me your favorite pics, I'll convert them. However, the usable area is more limited to the lower half of the screen.
