I don't think so. You would have to use something that reads EXIF data. I don't know of anything that will change the timestamp according to that, but it's certainly possible that it exists somewhere.

Also see this thread. Some AV and malware-hunting software have poor definitions, too broad based. I can scan all my files with ClamWin, with a fresh database, and turn up nothing. If I used one of the more popular AVs, I would lose some useful software. So I take it all with a grain of salt.

You can try Synchronize Directories with filtering. It doesn't seem to get all the unwanted file types out though. :( But if a lot of other files do ride along, you can filter for them in flat view and delete them.

If it doesn't start when double-clicked, it's a Windows problem, not a FreeCommander issue. Right click an avi file for Properties and change the "opens with" there.

Topic: Why is Refresh not F5?

Other programs -- notably web browsers -- also use Ctrl + R as an alternative refresh command. As for consistency, the F5 for copy-to is right next to F6, move-to, so there is internal consistency.

Anyway, if you don't like it, you can define your own keyboard shortcuts for just about everything. :D

Ctrl + V does fine for me.

But I must echo the praise for that copy button. I would hate to be without it!

FTP - problems ending session

I have had some complaints from FC before, usually when I try to change to another drive after FTP-ing. Because of that, I use a dedicated FTP tab. But since I moved to vista x64, I've had more messages popping up. "Cannot focus a disabled or invisible window" still comes up but there are worse thin...

I had some hope of running it under Wine, but it wouldn't go. All it said was"Exception EAccess violation in module FreeCommander.exe at 0000C618 etc. etc. etc...." which I take to mean "No way!" Guess I'll have to keep Windows ;)

I think so too. It is very hard to learn two or three or half a dozen conflicting sets of key commands, one for every program in daily use. "F" for "Filter" is logical only in a world where "F" doesn't already mean "Find" to almost everyone.

No problem with the language -- your question is clear :) Ctrl + F is not to search, it is to filter files, to show only one kind of file. To go back, right-click on the address bar (the bar above the files view that shows the path) and choose "All files (*.*)" It is easier to use the quick filter b...

I doubt you can do that. Not with the manufacturer's proprietary mess, anyway. And slipstreaming Vista is apparently not so easy. But make those disks ! The recovery partition on the hard drive could become corrupted, or you might have to replace the drive, and then at least you will be able to rein...
