I'm having a problem deleting files and directories.
I get a not implemented error.

The alert window is titled GlobalTrash Message
text reads " Cannot delete trashcan contents! (236: function not implemented)

Slight correction to that:

If I select files it will delete them. If I select the directory containing the files it will delete the files from the directory but not the directory itself. If I select multiple directories containing files, it will delete the files in the first selected directory but stop there.

Well... this happens sometimes, but only if AmiKit is located in windoze NTFS filesystem. I don't know if this happens on FAT32 too.

But the GlobalTrash is NOT the only program having this problem. Simply, directories cannot be deleted sometimes, no matter what program is used for deleting the directories... The problem is somewhere in WinUAE filesystem emulation, not AmiKit itself.

To avoid these problems you can copy your whole AmiKit into a bootable hardfile, however some knowledge is required to do so...

OK well at least I know it's not likely something I did.

Is there a guide somewhere that would help me to be able to do what you suggest?

It's not hard, you just need to create hardfile (at least 300mb large) with exactly the same parameters as current AmiKit partition has. I mean name it "AmiKit" , the device name should be "AK0", bootable, etc etc and then copy all the files from your current AmiKit to this new hardfile.

The only drawback of this solution is that the update archives won't update your hardfile anymore. Once you port your AmiKit to hardfile you need to install the updates manually (install them to temporary directory and then copy the content to appropriate location in your AmiKit hardfile...)

Hi
I am just getting back into using Amikit and was having this problem .. so it's still here after all this time.
So if one creates a directory and subsequently wish to delete it .. there's no way ???

Further to posting here I found another thread which suggested deleting from the winblows side. A bit wary of that but I did and it works.

Please try to update to the latest WinUAE.exe (downloaded from http://www.winuae.net - the ZIP archive). It might contain fix for the problem.
