Companion File Deletion

Post by bignose58 » Thu Feb 21, 2019 1:55 am

Although there is an available tick box under Settings/File list => Companion files linked for delete action, which in my case is unticked. Why when I delete a companion file (ORF) does the companion jpeg get deleted too ? surely the tick box is there to link the two files both ways (jpeg delete + companion ORF or ORF Delete + companion jpeg). I read the tick box to mean if unticked, I can delete either file without it deleting the other. Although I am now using ver 093, it was the same for 092.

Is this a small bug or am I misunderstanding the meaning of the tick box ?
