 the same happens under *nix with a vfat mount when the mount option
 "quiet" (ignore perm set errors) is not set.

 If you have problems installing Cygwin or Cygwin packages you can ask for
 help on the Cygwin mailing list. If you want to only use MC you don't have
 to install the whole net distribution - just select 'mc' from the 'Utils'

 If the problem that you are experiencing persists with the Cygwin version
 you can come back and open a new bugreport or maybe continue this one.

 Thanks, ive been out of the loop for a while.

 I cringe when I thiink of installing cygwin, last time (about a year or
 2 back it gave me such hassles)

 Maybe things have changed....

 Do you speak of the native Win32 port of MC ? It has been deprecated for
 quite some time. If you want to use MC on Win32 you better get the Cygwin
 version of MC. Using setup.exe from:


 Btw you seem to use quite an old version of MC - the last released version
 is MC4.6.0 from 2 years ago, and also there there are the MC4.6.1-pre[1-4]

 Version 4.1.36

 One of the main reasons people use MC is because if its "Yes for all" or
 "No for all" features.

 When doing batch moves/copies (of multiple directories) under Win32, the
 copy is often interrupted with "Permission denied" or "File cannot be
 stat-ed" and only options: "Skip, Retry, Abort".

 Skipping a lot of sequetial files often by accident skips files being
 copied (if you hold S!) - What a user interface disaster is that!?

 Another solution would be "Force" and "Force All" which would find the
 applications holding handles to files to be deleted, killing the handles,
 and deleting the file. I would most definitely add this feature, in the
 Linux version too.

 There should at the very least be a "Skip All" option, most definitely.

 Further, the neither the transfer rate nor ETA is displayed during most
 operations. Surely the code to do this for any operation is in place?

 I submit this here due to lack of time/ability to find a more appropriate
 place. Please guide me in the right direction. I will even fix these
 issues myself when I find the time.

 Thanks guys, everyone working on this project. We need this utility,

 Furthermore, I have discarded the mc.hlp file long ago and do not know
 what version I am using as there is no About anywhere that I can find.
