0.61: Moving unresponsive files causes duplicates

Post by Zheitk »

While trying to move some big files (high resolution, gifs with many frames, etc...) looks like xnviewmp is done quite fast and tries to delete the original file while it's still trying to render in the preview. This causes a failed dialog to appear, clicking "retry" opens another one prompting you to replace the currently existing file (the copy made while moving) by the original one :shock:.

a bit more clearly:
  • move a "hard to render" file (drag n' drop to another folder)
  • the copy in the new folder is made, & an attempt to delete the original is made
  • ...but the original file is still trying to render in the preview (or some info is still being fetched)
  • a failed dialog appear "cannot remove file", as is the whole move command had failed. you click retry (you should've selected ignore :wink:)
  • now xnview is trying to move again the file, but there's already a copy in the new folder
  • a wild "replace" dialog appears

What version?

This is a bug which it should be fixed in 0.60. Even if I think that I encountered it in very rare occasions also in 0.6...

Anyway, if I've seen it in 0.6, definitely it is in much more rare circumstances.

That's why it is important to know what version do you have.

1. With what tool did you do the screencast? :)

2. Most probably the problem is related to http://newsgroup.xnview.com/viewtopic.php?f=60&t=28450

With any screencast software, then I loaded the resulted video to VirtualDub, edit & export to gif, then gifsicle to optimize it...
