Windows Explores style for web interface

Windows Explores style for web interface

Explorer | Level 4

I'd like to suggest some improvements to the web interface:

1. Windows Explorer -like for better experience dealing with files and folders, mainly the folder tree;

2. Criticize during folder move/paste (skip or merge) and during file move/paste (skip, duplicate or replace);

3. Show sync percentage for each folder.

Hi @_thefixer, could you give us more details on what exactly you're referring to in relation to Windows Explorer?

Also, what do you mean by 'Criticize during folder move'?

This will help me to assist further!

Hey @Jay. Follow the details per your request.

 

The Microsoft Windows Explorer's windows is split in two. On the left side there is the folder tree and on the right side the contents of the selected folder on the left. Content can be viewed in list format, with details about dates, size, etc., or in thumbnail format.
In addition, you can drag and drop content from one folder to another, between the left and right panels.

 

About 'Criticize during folder move':
- When a file is copied or moved to someplace where there is a copy of that same file, WE asks: replace, keep both or cancel.
- When a folder is copied or moved to someplace where there is a copy of that same folder, WE asks: merge or cancel. If the option is to merge, before copying/moving the content, WE will ask if you want to replace, keep the 2 versions of the content or cancel.

 

Hope that is clarified!
