Clicky

ciara
I am trying to delete certain files (all the same name) spread out across my network drives.  It found them all no problem.. but when i attempt to then select all and delete  -- it wants me to 'ok' the delete for each one... but there are over 200 files... (and since this is mac - i cant just 'enter' on each one - since its not auto selected on "ok")
 The reason for the prompt - is these are network drives - so its asking to ok a permanent delete (skipping trash - as there is no 'trash' available).

can we fix this to allow ONE prompt for all selected files (this is the way the OS works if i searched in spotlight and choose to delete them).

thanks

Hi!

Thank you for the feedback. I'll add this to my to-do list. But it is a tough one.

As a workaround, you may drag the files from HoudahSpot into the Trash. This should let the Finder handle the deletions.

BTW, the "Delete" button is set to default and should respond to the return key.

Dear Houdah,

i´m wondering if there has been any progress on this topic. I´m also trying to delete many thousands of invisible files around a network drive.
Since the program should only remember the first choice you made it shouldn´t be so difficult to make a check box in the "delete dialog" or is it?

Since the return key works all files are finally deleted but it takes a lot more time because every single delete dialog will be displayed.

Best Regards,
Chris

Hi!

I have several requests to address some rough edges in the file operations.

Thank you for reminding me of this one.
