Explorer Pane: Disable "[+]" for Folders with Archives?

Postby rytz » Thu Apr 08, 2021 12:12 pm

Hi:

Is it possible to prevent/disable BRU from placing a "[+]" by folders that only have archives (and no actual subfolders)?

I used to use the "[+]" as a visual cue for ensuring no subfolders existed but, in certain situations, I'll have ZIP files in those folders, which makes the "[+}" visually useless. I would have to traverse each folder to check for subfolders which would be very time consuming.

Any options or ways to disable this?

Thanks.

I'll confirm the situation.

(Note that once you open the particular directory; Temp2 or SORT, it will then display as expected.)

You are correct - Windows File Explorer does this as well.

I never use the navigation pane so I never noticed.

I think an alternative solution for me would be to use BRU to list Subfolders and sort by subdirs to check if any subdirs exist.

Thanks for the response. Feel free to close this post.

Windows considers ZIP files as folders, in general, BRU is using a similar API to Windows to enumerate folders.
