Hello Lightning UK,

I think you should make "Include System Files" and "Include Hidden Files" checked in default setting. Yesterday I installed Imgburn 2.3.2.0 on a new computer, then added about 4 GB of files in build mode (user profiles, lots of hidden files), but the calculator kept sayin - 1,5 GB. Well, weird behavior as Total Commander indicated 4,2 GB. I didn't have enough time to investigate and thought it was some issue with the calculator, so I burnt the project. However, after that I examined freshly burnt disc with TC and found you know what - 1,5 GB of files. :-)
Then I looked more carefully into Imgburn settings and spotted those System and Hidden files options and checked them immediately and burnt the disc again correctly.

I know it was my fault. But if it is not a problem to check these two settings in default, many future users would be grateful. When I want to burn a directory - I want to burn everything, right? No matter if it is hidden or system.

Regards

Jack

That depends on what you're doing, often you might not want hidden + system files.

Everyone has their own way of doing things and it's not hard to locate that settings.

Sorry but it stays as it is.
Please don't PM me with questions that should be posted in the forum. I won't reply - Especially if you have post count of 0!!!

Replies to posts belong in the forum where everyone can read them. Please don't PM them.

In fact, don't PM me at all unless it's something I've asked to be told about!

Before asking questions, search the forum to see if someone else already has.

Use the FAQ and Guides forums to your advantage. I don't want to have to tell you to read them!

Dredging up an ancient post here...

How about having a warning (which can be disabled, but is on by default) that lets you know there are hidden files in the folder(s) you've chosen to write to disc, and that these won't be included unless you toggle the appropriate option? You'd never see the warning if you never tried to back up a folder with hidden files.

I almost missed backing up a bunch of important system files, but just happened to notice that the total file count seemed wrong. I caught it, but this is one of those 'nice' warning I'd expect to get from ImgBurn.

Thanks,
omf
