#103 closed defect (duplicate)

File open dialog accesses all drives upon opening

Reported by: chennecke Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: Qt Beta 5
Component: General Version: 4.5.1 Beta 3
Severity: Keywords:


When the file open dialog is opened in an application, it accesses all drives including the floppy and DVD/CD ones even if the current path is not located there.

It would be great if this could be changed to access the drives only when required because:

  • This puts stress on the floppy drive which is usually empty these days and makes the DVD/CD drive spin up unnecessarily if a disc is located in the drive.
  • The dialog won't work until the TOC of all media has been read which can take quite some time for floppies and DVDs/CDs.
