The ability to create rules/order of operations.

Not sure how to better word the title...I want to be able to change the default process, or to automate some handling of things. To set up rules I can swap between. I don't want to get prompted for what to do, I want to set up predetermined rules / order of events.For example...If I copy/move files from one place to another, and there are already files with the same name(s) in the destination, I don't want to be asked if I want to skip or rename. I want it to first, automatically skip those files for last. Then I want it to verify the source/destination files that had the same name. If the files match verification, I want the source files deleted. If the files fail verification, I want the files to be copied/moved and renamed (and if files were moved, for any empty folders from the source location(s) to then be deleted).That's what I wind up doing every time, and I'm just so tired of having to manually go through that process.But, I know that's not how everyone else would like things to function, so I'm just wishing I could create some sort of rules/profile/template/etc that would let me set that as the selected process to use.Hope that makes sense.(I posted this ~4months ago, never got any response, been in review the entire time, resubmitting the request.)

Bug copying files to "network ressources" copies files to local drive

I mentioned a serious bug. I added various shares of my NAS to my explorer. As I don't want my windows explorer to be overloaded with various "network drives" (with drive letter!) I added some rarely needed shares via "network ressource" (without drive letter). Network ressources can be found in userprofile here: %USERPROFILE%\\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Network Shortcuts.Now copying files from your local drive to this network ressource does NOT copy these files to the network share itself, but onto %USERPROFILE%\\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Network Shortcuts\<NetworkShortcut>\ and the file is still located onto local hard drive. Please see this screenshot:

TeraCopy Pro 4.0 Alpha: Sluggish interface during copy/move and other observations.

I've been working with the new alpha for a month now. Here are some observations I have noticed. These observations are made during large copy/move jobs with millions of files of various size (1KB to 400GB). With 32X 512Kb buffer size on 16 threads. I also use SHA256 hash for verification. TeraCopy is installed in Program Files as per usual.Sluggish interfaceWhile a job is running, the interface will hang or become very sluggish if I interact with it. Any operation (opening settings, about in the main interface or changing between file list, target, options, status or log in on a particular job - as well as navigating between jobs) seems to bring the app to a halt for a few seconds.Large/small file size combination will still only run in single-thread modeIf the copy/move job contains a mix of large or small files, the app will go into single-thread mode. As far as I can see, it will stay in this mode for the duration. Pausing or stopping the job does not always workWhen during a large copy/move operation, if the user tries to pause or stop the operations. This can sometimes never occur, the app has to be killed from the task manager to actually stop. This could be related to the same issues as the sluggish behaviour above.Copy to LTFS does not deactivate NTFS-streams automatically.I know this is not directly linked to the Alpha, nor is it a technical issue per se, but it is worth mentioning anyway. If a job has a LTFS target or any other target that does not have support for NTFS streams. TeraCopy will still copy over the stream files. This is of course helpful if what you want is to copy ADS, but in most cases, we don't. For now we have to set this as default behaviour for all copies and re-enable it when doing NTFS to NTFS copy/move jobs. A choice list with formats would be helpful here.

Several suggestions (and issues), if addressed could (greatly) enhance the user experience

Let the user drag folders into 'Oranize favorites' in DF configuration.Currently you can drag a folder into 'Origanize favorites' but it does notget properly recognized thus showing an empty path and caption. Let the user add FILE items (shortcuts, exe, bat, etc...).Selecting that file item then runs itA way around this is by setting a folder as 'Show content', but dragging an file item into 'Oranize favorites' would be much faster/efficient.The online help doesn't seem to work, an error page is shown404 Not Found -> https://help.codesector.com/links/direct-foldersWhen right clicking on the systray icon and selecting 'Online help'A system global hotkey that activates DF menuIn 'Oranize favorites' add folders directly from- top opened folder in windows explorer- from filemanager (TC / Dopus)This would require an extra button called 'add from topmost active'.For example if the button 'add from topmost active' is clicked then DF checkswhat is the topmost window behind DF, if it is TC then fetch the path from TC.Let user add commands under 'Commands' menu itemIn Configuration > Options > disable the hotkey actions for 'Favorites' and 'Recent'Currently this is not possibleExclude drives/folders from being tracked in history/recentA modifier that let's you 'Show content' content of an menu item (folder).Currently you can only do this when the radiobutton 'Show content' is selected.A modifier is a key like [SHIFT] for example. If [SHIFT] is pressed while double clicking it then activates the DF menu and selecting an item from the menu now shows content!OPTIONALLY: set a third radio button next to 'Open' and 'Show content' called 'Modifier'. When 'Modifier' radiobutton is selected the user could then select an modifier/modifier combination. For example the user adds a new menu item 'test' which refers to c:\test. Selecting the radio button 'Modifier' and then selecting [SHIFT]. Now when the user selects the menu item 'test' while [SHIFT] is pressed will now show the contents of the menu item 'test' in stead of opening it.A proper portable version, currently there is an portable versionhttps://support.codesector.com/en/articles/8789963-portable-version-of-direct-foldersBut that version requires you to run an bat file which copies to appdata folder.A version that runs 100% from the DF folder itself would be very welcome

Direct Folders

TeraCopy doesn't place files in the correct position on desktop

I'm using TeraCopy 3.17 on Windows 10. I'm not sure if it is even possible to fix this, but whenever I move a file from a folder to the desktop, the file is placed in the first empty space found in the grid, rather than the exact position where I dropped it, as Windows File Explorer does.A quick search led me to this post, but unlike what the top answer states, the icons positions on my computer are stored in the IconLayouts registry key, rather than ItemPosXXXxXXX. I'm guessing that the position of new icons will have to be calculated based on the cursor's position when the transfer started, and the desktop boundaries might also have to be taken into account, which would probably make matters more complex. Hopefully I'm missing an easier solution.

Save checksum to custom storage location

Teracopy is one of the tools that is always open and constantly running different jobs, both checksum testing and file copy between many different internal, local and external locations. One thing that has bugged me for quite some time is that I need to manually copy checksum files from either target or source folder. Could we have the option to store the checkum files in a custom location? The options I could really use are:Naming scheme on file (i.e.: $SOURCEDIR_$TARGETDIR_DD.MM.YYYY.sha256or $JOBNAME_$TIMESPAMP.md5Option to select if the path inside the checksumfile should be absolute or relative.Option to allow it to store one checksum file per file copied or per subfolder, then with naming scheme set to $FILENAME_DD.MM.YYYY.ext, this could also potentially be extended to allow sub folder creation by setting this:$TARGETDIR/$JOBNAME/$FILENAME_DD.MM.YYYY.ext which then will create a folder named after the target folder, then after the current job and store each checksum file for a given file copied.Option to not save:; SHA-256 checksums generated by TeraCopy; teracopy.comor allow us to customize it (using predefined shortcodes like $filename, $jobname, $profilename and more), I could then interface with these files programatically elsewhere.A natural place for these options could be this dialog:Is this something that is feasable to do?
