installing 601 removes all previous fav folders

#1 Post by vsrawat » 04.10.2012, 04:47

installed 601 on w7

I had 4-5 folders set as my fav folders (in 591). those were appearing in fav folder icon click.

installing 601 has reset them, removed them all, now not even a single folder is appearing.

I re-assigned them.

Ack. I also had the same issue. It looks now that the favorites are stored not inside the configuration INI file, but as an external XML file. The favorites however are present in the '.ini' file for FreeCommander in the user specific directory for FC XE settings.

It would have been really useful if there had been a migration of favorites as a part of the upgraded install. At this point, have noticed that the feature is also a bit flaky.

Because of the redesign the favorites are stored in the file "FreeCommander.fav.xml" now. This format isn't compatible with the INI format.
So you've to save your favorites once again.
But because of the new possibilities this may only take a few minutes.

Indeed, redefining favs takes a few keys. It is really easy.

just that, a user should be made aware of what all he is going to lose in a new install or upgrade.

Thanks.
