webdav+mklink not well supported & too many thumbnail folders

Thumbnail/trash folder (Solved bellow!)

(imagemagick installed) Filerun will create a "thumbnail" folder in each folder containing any picture. With so many pics and so many folders containing pics in my PC, there will be huge amount of "thumbnail"s in my disk. This causes much disturbance when using file sync softwares (such as freefilesync) even normal copy&paste jobs, and makes it difficult to keep my data tidy and clean.

So, if we are allowed to specify a path for files&folders created by filerun (such as thumbnail&trash), that will be better, making it easy to manage and clean these temp files. Filerun can be set to clean them automatically too. (For example, weekly cleaning all thumb last used three months ago)

Webdav+mklink

"mklink" is a windows cmd similar to linux "ln"."mklink /j" is well supported in the filerun web client (browser), however it's not fully suppoted in webdav. My webdav client is RaiDrive, superuser home path is "D:/", when double clicking a JUNCTION(link created by "mklink /j") leading to "D:/", it works; when double clicking a JUNCTION leading to "C:/", it shows an empty folder; the same JUNCTION works well in browser.

Webdav is really useful because I can operate a net disk like a local disk. When it comes to multiple partitions to be operated with just one webdav service, mklink should be put into use.


It seems I typed a lot, it did take me a lot of time to think&express actually. I'm willing to do that, because I'd like to see FileRun's better performance from the bottom of my heart. Hope these things will be realized in the next version! Thanks a lot for developers!

You mean this option in "\customizables\config.php" ??

$config['path']['trash'] = 'D:/FileRunTemp/trash';

$config['path']['thumbnail_cache'] = 'D:/FileRunTemp/thumbnail';

Thanks for your reply. I can not find such file, so I will create one later. Maybe it will work!

the same JUNCTION works well in browser.

Please explain.

Thanks for your reply. What "mklink /j" creates looks like a shortcut, which in fact isn't. It's role in Windows is similar to "ln -s" in Linux, connecting one path to another. In Windows CMD, it's labelled "JUNCTION". In browser, when we double click it(it looks like a folder in filerun), we will go to the path which the junction was set to. However, in webdav, when we double click it, we will not go to the path which the junction was set to, showing an empty folder instead. This is where problem lies.
