Default Order on transfer ...

Can flash be set so that after .sfv it transfers the files not sorted by name , but rather size ?

If you left-click the column called size, you can sort it like you do names etc, then add the files/dirs to the queue.

thanks .. but that won´t help ....

I mean if I queue up 10 dirs ... i want flash to in every dir start with the largest (after sfv ofc) and work its way down ...

Yes, I can do that manually .. but that takes too long .. if U catch my drift ....

All you need to do is que the dirs, then hit the column for which ever you want, in your case size... and it will que/list the rest of them by that... and thus transfer by size.

hmmmm OK

I´ll have a go at that


But would be nice to be able to just have it default do the largest files first

IMO, there should be a list maintained as an option somewhere for order in which files are transferred, similar to the skip list...I personally like the sfv being transferred first, but I also wish it would then do oh say the nfo file after that.

Just an idea.

Uh, what practical difference would that have compared to sorting by the column? I can see moving the .sfv first, but the rest, that's both pretty much useless as far as order is concerned, and could potentionally slow things down if it has to do alot of internal sorting based on a user-defined list. Just think of the craze you could have with such a list. The main point is that it all has to be transferred anyhow, the order is ultimately irrelevant.

sorting of queue would be nice.
sometimes i like to d/l all small pictures 1st so i can view at 'em while it d/l rest of 'em
or sometimes i like to d/l .sfv, .nfo, 1st and last files and then the rest..this way it's easier to keep track of how long to go.
