May be instead of deleting "Test" folder entirely, cleaning all inside "deleting all files / and folders if there is a Test directory" would be better solution to keep "shortcuts/pins" for Windows and such...


If (there is folder) -> delete all ingredients inside it, rather than delete "TEST" itself
if (there is not) -> create

Just a minor detail, thank you :)

@SiSl: I think that shortcuts will be just fine if folder will be only temporarily missing. Please try that by yourself I don't have Windows by hand right now so I can't try:
1. create "mod/test"
2. create your shortcut and try to use it
3. delete "mod/test"
4. create "mod/test" again
5. try to use your shortcut again

Just tested... It gets unpinned as soon as I delete Test folder from Fast Access / Recents menu :( Not talking about hardcode *.lnk" files though...

That's why I was pointing out :(

Well I will have to disappoint you, just empty the directory is not an option I believe. Because I have to take into account that someone might at some point change packing to zip file, meaning folder mod should be gone at that moment... So to prevent that I have to remove directory every time packing with same mod name is triggered.

PS: did you consider to upgrade to some better file browser than windows default?

I'll find a way... :) There are always options in UX ;)

Thanks anyway :)

May be a request to bring back "checkbox" for "Clean RSCS folder" for everytime? :)

Yeah, thought that's only "when packaging"

Anyway, since there will be folder copy after Monday, I think that will cover it.

Ah you were using CONVERT SCS PROJECT... mhm you are right in this case it's not covered :P But you can always click CLEAN RSRC before hiting convert and that's it. However I removed that option because I think people will rather use pack converted data.
