File Manager Suggestions
« on: July 21, 2022, 05:17:19 PM »
We are a CWP Pro user and have been very happy with it.  Thank you!

We've been using File Manager a lot lately and I wanted to suggest a couple of possible enhancements for a future build.

1.  Sorting by size does not seem to take into account whether the size is Bytes, KBytes, MBytes, etc.  It sorts by the numerical values only which requires us to scan the entire folder contents when searching for large files.

2.  It would be very helpful to display the size of the folder (and all files and subfolders beneath it).  Currently size is only displayed for files.

3.  You can select all files or select multiple, individual files by clicking on them which is very nice.  It would be extremely helpful to also be able to select a range of files/folder within a current folder by clicking the top file and then holding the shift key and selecting the bottom file.  Some folders contain a long list of garbage files from previously failed installs, logs, etc. and you want to be able to delete a large swath of these files without deleting all of them or even most of them.  It is very tedious in this case to have to select each of the files individually or select all and then deselect the files you don't want to delete.

4. It would be very nice to have a configuration option to display dates as mm/dd/yyyy for use in the United States.  This would be much appreciated across CWP and not just the File Manager.

Thanks for your consideration!
