File Containers - delete vs. remove

#1 Post by Dreamer » 23.05.2014, 17:47

When using delete inside file container, real file is deleted, there is a confirm dialog, but I think it's mostly used to add many files from different location and then copy or move them to a new locasion in the other panel. Real deletion is less needed than just removing the items from container, so I suggest to...

Add a new dialog when using delete inside file container:

Code: Select all

Select the operation you want to perform:

[Remove from container only]* [Delete from disk and remove from container]*

[ ] Never ask again
* these should be the buttons, first one should be focused by default.

Or different dialog:

Code: Select all

Remove item(s) from container.

[ ] Delete also item(s) from disk

[ ] Never ask again
EDIT: This would be very useful to easily and quickly remove item(s) from container.
