It should be great to delete:

1-This "system volume information" directory that winXP
creates automatically
2-The "Recycler" directory

3-Some MP3 while playing so we could make some free
space when listening to a duplicate and/or bad MP3.
This task depends upon

nice idea.

Yes. "Delete on-the-fly" feature will be very useful.

Marking as primary delete/move file management request.

Delete is now available, although only for single files.

Just want to add my two cents. I listen to "disposable" mp3's
which I need to delete after I'm done with them. It would be
very useful to have a directory delete. I currently use
directory rename to tag the dir to be deleted, then when I
connect to a computer, I can delete the dir's.

Please support directory delete--with option for recursive and
non-recursive--and directory move.

What would a non-recursive directory delete do?
Comment by P. V. G. (petesimon) - Thursday, 06 November 2003, 03:13 GMT

Sorry for the lack of explaination...
I suppose a non-recursive directory delete would only delete
the files contained within the targeted directory, but not the
sub-directories nor the files in those sub-directories. Thus,
the directory in question would also not be deleted. (This is
behaviour is very similar to DOS/Windows "del" command upon
a directory containing files and sub-directories.)
Albeit, other deleting behaviour could be introduced....Any

Love the Rock!
I would like to see:
Ability to delete directories
Auto-delete system Volume Information & Recycle Bin after
USB disconnect
Delete Mp3 on the fly (when you play a bad one)

I would like "a run once per file" option that will delete the file
once it's finished playing it back. Say if you have really bad
songs but want to finish playback...then it deletes that file.

It is possible to delete directories and files (don't know
if it wasn't when the request was filed) - the playback code
is robust enough to handle the playing file to be deleted if
I understand correctly.
