#127 closed enhancement (fixed)

"Remember" drive exclusion list

Reported by: jbs Owned by: jbs
Priority: minor Milestone: Release_3.10
Component: fm/2 base Version:
Keywords: Cc:


When running FM/2 for the first time after an installation of FM/2, FM/2 scans all the hard drives. If the drive scan "fails" on any drives a dialog pops up asking if it is OK to set a parameter for FM/2 that tells it not to scan those drives.

Having to respond to this dialog after every install of FM/2 is annoying. And since many people have Windows on C: and the Windows partition is often unreadable from OS/2, I cannot believe I am alone in this experience.

It would be nice if the parameters, including the "exclusion list", (e.g. /BC %*) could be "remembered" so that it could be re-applied during subsequent installations.

One possible way to implement the "memory" would be within the FM3.INI file. Another possibility would be to use Henk Kelder's WPTOOL utility (which would query the existing object during the installation).
