Empty Subcat Hack
« on: September 25, 2020, 01:25:27 PM »
Is there a hack to get rid of the "Empty Subcat" box in the Directory Import box?

It doesn't need activation, it deletes everything as soon as you click on the box

Twice now I have accidentally clicked on it which deleted all our Ukrainian music (A Ukrainian radio station without any Ukrainian music) and the second time it also deleted everything off one of our hard drives

I think you don't need to hack anything, you just have to be carefull when you do click on your mouse. If your subfolder is unchecked it won't delete anything. It's only up to you.

I've been using RadioDJ for 5 years without a problem, yet somehow I've accidentally manager to click that box TWICE in the last 5 weeks and wiped out most of my database

It's a dangerous box and shouldn't be there in the first place IMHO

A warning would be nice if the box is selected

Do you want to empty the subccat before importing

Of course not, and nobody wants to delete tracks not found, maybe you want to relocate them...

Wow, I had no idea clicking that box would immediately do that kind of destruction. Now my hand is trembling like Dr. Strangelove:o
