Drive tab loses focus to network drive

Post by *markcoutinho » 2019-03-25, 10:34 UTC

Hi all,
I've been using TC for some 15 years now - today I'm using TC 9.2.
Since a couple of weeks I've this problem with the program:
- I've got several tabs opened: to my c-drive and to some network drives
- TC stays open, while I'm working in other programs
- when I return to TC some (not all) of the network-tabs have returned to the root of the c-drive. The history of the tab is saved, so I can jump back to the network drive, however that's a workaround of course.

Has anyone a suggstion what might be the cause of this?

Thanks in advance!

Mark

This happens when the network connection is temporarily lost. You can prevent the automatic refresh when going back to Total Commander:
Menu configuration - Options - Refresh - No refreshfor these drives:
Here you need to enter a single backslash for network drives without a drive letter: \

You then need to press F2 or Ctrl+R to refresh the directory manually.

Thanks. I'll give it a go.
If you don't hear anything from me anymore, it worked just fine.
