I move some files in Finder (instead of EF). I get errors next time I use EF. How can I most efficiently delete all those errors? I can click on them one at a time, click reveal in Library, delete, and empty trash, but I would like to be able to select all of the errors and say, in effect, “go away, I don’t care.” with a single deletion. I
You can delete all the errors from the window by using Select All and then pressing Delete. There is no way to delete all the missing files from EagleFiler, though; you have to do it one-by-one, unless you already know which folder the files are in, so that you can find them in EagleFiler directly. In this case, I think the best solution is not to move the files using the Finder.
Thanks Michael, I was afraid that was the answer. Unfortunately, I slip once in awhile into working in Finder mode. It does seem to me that if EagelFiler knows the errors, then it knows the file names; and if it knows the file names, then it ought to be possible to delete the related files. Doesn’t seem easy, however. Perhaps in the future.
Yes, it would be possible, but in most cases I think the recommended course of action is to put the files back into the expected places, rather than to delete EagleFiler’s references to them.
That’s probably true (restoration would be a more common need), but it turns out that I make the mistake of doing things from Finder most frequently when I’m in a special clean-up mood, deleting various things left-and-right. When I do that, much of what I delete is not in any EF folder. But some is, and the problem then arises. Oh well.
OK, I will make a note to try to make deletion easier.
