The Directory Browser Filter is very useful, thank you very much.

Will 'Hide Existing Directories' be a future option? (wish list item)

Thank you again,

Would it be possible to have a seperate check box for each of the four:

_Existing Directories
_Existing Files
_Deleted Directories
_Deleted Files


Thank you,

SR-4:

Many thanks for this rapid modification :-) for RAID 0.

Is it available for download (Just tried but I don't think the server is updated yet?)
