Problems using the "Delete original" option and one wish

Post by Gido »

1. After the conversion of each file, it is deleted, but at the same time the current program window (any program) loses the focus for a split second. This leads to while XnConvert works is actually impossible to use the computer.

2. I'm not sure how it is now, but at least a year ago, even if the converting fails, the original file was still deleted. Agree that this is a very unpleasant situation.

3. After completing the process, I would like to see a separate log where there will be a list of files that caused errors. Now it is quite difficult to look for them in a huge general list.

Windows?

You need to try latest version...

Ok, perhaps at the end...

If you don't use 'recycle bin', no more problem?

I'm not sure that I understood your question. Please paraphrase and specify.

P.S. Someone on this forum secretly changes the text of the messages, I see it the second time. Initially, I talked about the XNconvert program, but someone changed the text to "Nconvert". And besides, I never used Nconvert.
