Right click - Delete works fine. Additional choice is shown if you have the file on disk. Try it with a test link + file on disk.

I have the file on disk which was downloaded completed.

I only want to remove the link from the download list,
not delete the actual file on my hdd.

Yes, please remove this "Nag"-Screen with "do you want to delete the file on the harddisk" ...

This came with the lastest update - before you just could remove the completed links without any further interaction.

If you want to delete my files ... I don't need JD2 for it ...

Please make this screen optional or remove it completly

Why not implement it like this:

Delete - deletes entry in JDownloader but leaves files on HDD
Shift+Delete - deletes entry in JDownloader and deletes files from HDD
(Alt-Delete - deletes entry in JDownloader and moves files into the recycle bin)

The pop-up just annoying to click away each time.

Plus we don't want to delete the actual files that we just downloaded

Else what is the point of downloading and then deleting it from the hdd?

We just want to remove the completed links from the download list like before

==

Please remove this annoying prompt screen everytime we want to delete links
Or give us an option to disable this.

I like it before this recent update.

For me the option move downloaded files to trash is very usefull, because frecuently I test/download links to check if the plugins are working fine, and when I download those files I just delete they because for me are not useful. And sometimes I download files temporary and the I delete those files.

My sugestion is add an option like "Don't show this again" and you set the option that you like. Or add an advanced option to set what option do you want when you use that function.

Thanks for the information Tony, I didn't seen that because after the last update when the options restart an continue was gone, I have been using another JD2 that hasn't update, because I need to use those options.

That advanced option works perfectly!

Thanks for adding this option to go back to "normal" again

I only found it under advanced options :
GraphicalUserInterfaceSettings.showdeletelinksdialogoption > HIDE_ALL

In the old JD there was a function 'Remove completed', I have been searching for this this in JD2 and can't find it!?

Also, when I mark several downloads in JD2 and press delete, only one marked download gets deleted!?

So almost everybody happy now?


poul6963:

Remove completed: it is there. just look a bit closer.


Your second report: I cannot verify this. If I mark 3 downloads and press the delete key. All of them are deleted. Please test again and explain exactly what you were doing.

Trying the advanced settings
GraphicalUserInterfaceSettings.showdeletelinksdialogoption
I found that I can read only the text completely, if I increase the Value field.

Please increase the width of the popup to the max possible, when the text is longer than the value field.
Edit:
Mouseover doesn't work in the Value field.
Edit2:
I found mouseover works in the Actions, so at least I can read what is set in Value.

Default JDownloader 2 Delete update

Right first thing i can say i have used this for a long time and love it.


BUT I have had a new update in the last week and whoever thought the options changing of the deletiion was a good idea need to be shot....:outch:

when i want to delete its normally from jdownloader only IF i want to delete from my computer i can CHOOSE that myself without JDOWNLOADER thinking its wonderful.

YET the actually problem is i have constantly change the setting have it delete from JDOWNLOADER and keep on computer.

YET Jdownloader changes this on the fly the setting is not remembered.

And SOMETIMES changes it back to delete from JDOWNLOADER and my Computer WHY !!!!!

I have now got to redownload the files i have lost.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE either give an advanced option to permanently set the option if I WANT or change the option back to the OLD solution which was delete (which was JUST from JDOWNLOADER).

I dont mind Updates but this update was of NO USE


I LOVE this program but this was not a useful Update.



Software info: Core #20608
Launcher :#1912
Appwork Utilities : #1631
Browser: #20579
Updater: #368.

It's me who should get shot - according to your post... Thanks for that



However... could you please explain what you mean. give screenshots. I honestly do not understand your problem.

"Remove Link from JDownloader only DO NOT delete anything from harddisk" is the first option in the dropdown list. It is default. And yes. JD does not remember your choice here. Because remembering anything that deletes files from harddisk would be bad.


What language do you use? Maybe there are bad translations? Please give me more information, or show me in Teamviewer what you mean.

Hi Colado

It seems it's you who did not understand as other people do seem to understand what i was implying.

delete downloaded file permanently from harddisk & remove links from jdownloader

keep all downloaded files - just remove links jdownloader

move downloaded files to trash


are the options to delete ???????? why ?


I want it to press delete key on my keyboard and the link in jdownloader to disappear i am an adult and fully understand the ramifications.:whistling:

I have tried to change the options in advanced options (thanks to others for posting jpg option) but i don't have pull down option it does nothing when i click.

this was the case in previous versions.

press the delete key links in jdownloader disappeared thats all i require.

PS.I'm English/UK not English/US.

Hm. Yes. you are right. It's me who did not understand. That's what I wrote, didn't I?


And this did not change at all.



How to delete:


1. Select a Link
2. Press the Delete key
3. This Dialog appears:



We have these 3 options. The first one is preselected.
4. So all you have to do is
5. Click on the "Delete" Button to confirm.

Result: The Links is gone. The File is still on Your harddisk.

What's wrong with that?

If you only want to delete the links, from your download list, just select the links/packages, press CTRL + the button DEL/SUPR.

Default Removing every complete link deletes the files

Hi all,

If every download is finished and I select all the completed links and press delete (to remove the completed links, not the files), the program deletes every file from disk despite the: GraphicalUserInterfaceSettings.showdeletelinksdialogoption option setting, which is: HIDE_ALWAYS_AND_NEVER_DELETE_ANY_LINKS_FROM_HARDDISK.

This serious issue had me to re-download quite a few extra Gbs.
