Unable to delete folders

Postby hutchsj » Thu Mar 05, 2009 5:10 am

Hi,

It seems I am unable to delete folders even though the gui states I can add files or folders. Any idea? Right now, I am deleting files with scrubber, and then deleting folders using the normal windows.

Thanks,
Bob

The scrubber does Files only. The GUI allows you to add a folder's "contents", but will not delete the folder itself, nor will it delete sub-folders or their contents.

From the Docs:
To scrub files, you must begin by adding files or folder contents to the list found on the
right-hand side of the program's main window. Use the Add Files and Add Folder
buttons for this purpose. When using the Add Files button, you can select one file at a
time, or select multiple files. The Add Folder button will add all of the files to the list
that are found in a given folder. Subfolders and their contents will not be added to the
list when using the Add Folder button.


Please see the scrubber documentation for full details.
