Re: When selecting additional folder, subfolders are no longer selected

I've seen such an issue about one year ago when I changed additional folders behavior to get the process speedier.
The fix was to remove the [DIRS] section within autobackup.ini file.

Re: When selecting additional folder, subfolders are no longer selected

That section is only there when i select an additional folder and then quit the program
But it makes not difference if the section is removed afterwards, the problem remains when I try it again

Re: When selecting additional folder, subfolders are no longer selected

Thought I try a new install, just to be sure, but apparently downloads for my purchase has expired, did not even know it expired smile
Maybe that has something to do with it...

I've just tested it right now and it worked as expected. However, there's a cosmetic issue here anyway : As soon as folder is selected while it's collapsed, sub folders will be copied as well. The problem is that when you expand it after you selected it while collapsed, sub folders show as unselected while they are in fact.
Edit: if you need, I can provide a download link to the last version that was available before your update period has expired. Let me know.

Well, tested again on other machine, it did copy the folder i selected (even though the cosmetic issue is confusing)
But something seems to be not right anyway, i did a few tries and at times folders i de-selected were still backupped etc... I keep you posted if I can make some sense of it or if the problems persist.
Thanks for your quick answers, as always..

I guess I will end removing that check tree view that is dodgy since the very beginning.
I thik about a simple tree view on the left side and 2 lists views on the left. One for folders including subfolders and the other for folders content only. This way, no more hassle

That's why I check if the subdirs are checked as well smile

Work started today. That would be a bit different than what I said in my previous post. There would be a tree view (without check boxes) on the left side and a list with check boxes on the right side. I'll do my best to make that as handy as possible despite the fact check boxes in the tree view will disappear
