Deletion of (hidden) files named "icon?" not possible

Post by McYoda » 08 Apr 2013, 22:17

Hi there
I'm working with the latest Salamander beta. I get errors while trying to delete files (which seem to be sourced from an Apple computer) named "icon?".
Deleting them in Windows Explorer is no problem, though.

Regards
Martin

The problem is probably Unicode characters in the file name. Salamander does not support unicode yet. It has been discussed here a few times already.

Martin, there is Salamander function Shift+F3 - Open Active Folder in Windows Explorer. It is useful shortcut for such cases.

Thanks for the hint. This will definitely shortcut the deletion of such files.

There is nice new feature in Altap Salamander 3.0 beta 1: focused file or directory from Salamander panel is focused in Windows Explorer window when you press the Shift+F3.
