DROPFAKE on taskbar

Post by red_puppy » 06 May 2009, 05:52

Hi -
I just noticed the word DROPFAKE on my taskbar today (screen grab) under Windows XP Pro SP3. It still appears after a reboot. I did a Google search for 'dropfake' and 'dropfake taskbar' and only came up with one hit on the Altap forum: http://forum.altap.cz/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1408 which doesn't correspond to what I observe. But for that search result I wouldn't have suspected Servant Salamander could be involved, but it's all I have to go on. Clicking, double clicking and hovering the mouse above the word does nothing. I am baffled. Does anybody else have any clues? I am using Salamander version 2.52 beta 1. Thanks

Sorry for troubles! To remove this "toolbar" just right click it and choose Toolbars submenu and click on DROPFAKE item.

This happens when you drag&drop files from archive or filesystem (from Salamander) to taskbar. DROPFAKE is just an empty directory placed in TEMP directory, it is used to get the target path of drag&drop operation and when it fails (e.g. this case with taskbar), it is unintentionally moved/copied (Salamander displays messagebox with warning that it could happened).

Petr -
Thanks for the quick and complete answer to my question including the event that resulted in DROPFAKE on taskbar. My minor problem was solved with your help and I learned a bit more about the taskbar as well. I apologize to take so long to thank you for your help.
