Description

Windows XP SP2 / Swish 0.70

Attempted to use context (right click) menu but received error:

Unable to create the folder 'New Folder'
File system error (16386)

Attempted to use File>New Folder workround in http://www.swish-sftp.org/ticket/156 but received error:

Unable to create the folder 'New Folder'
File system error (16386)

This appears to be similar to #106 and #156 but now affects File and context "New Folder" function.

Sorry for the typo: Swish 0.7.0

This also affects other functions under the context menu. For example New>Text Document returns the same error.

The workaround did work in 0.6.0 but seems to no longer work in 0.7.0.

Test on Win XP SP3 with same results.

File>New Folder is just as broken as Right Click>New Folder. Are you sure it ever worked on XP?

The 'workaround' is to use the Windows XP task pane. These get hidden if you use 'classic' view.

This appears to be similar to #106 and #156 but now affects File and context "New Folder" function.

Unless I'm mistaken, it always did, didn't it?

File>New Folder worked previously as the workaround. Task Pane still works.

Why the change to minor? This problem indicates failure under two fundamental UI functions.

Strange. None of the code changes made between 0.6.3 and 0.7.0 could have affected this.

Why the change to minor? This problem indicates failure under two fundamental UI functions.

Because it has a workaround. Major is for problems with no workaround. Critical is for problems with no workaround and which occur on every use of Swish for the majority of users.

But don't worry about the designation too much. This bug is in the batch of things we're working on now.
