          • Check if file exists before copying from CIFS to SD card

            When I copy a folder with lots of files from a network share to an SD card (through SAF) Ghost Commander currently copies the files to the local storage. Only then it tries to copy the files to the SD card (I supposes that's another stupid Android limitation for our "security" and you can't copy files directly to the SD card) and complains that some of the files already exist.
            That would save lots of time if the check would be performed for each file before it is actually copied.
            This would greatly help in quickly synchronising folders which do…

              • Add an Menuentry for opening the progress windows (after the progress windows was closed)

                After you click on close in the progress window, there is no action to open it again.

                it would be nice, to get the progress window back again.

                • chmod under non-root mode

                  I want to create a common folder (world rw), say /data/data/com.ghostsq.commander/tmp or /sdcard_path/Android/data/com.ghostsq.commander/tmp to share with other applications.

                  I know chmod is already available under root mode, but not available under non-root (normal) mode (I don't want to root my phone).

                      • Remind vertical scrolling positions

                        The scrolling position isn't stored when GC is being minimized or when switching to a different app. Therefore you're always back at the top of the file list when you return to GC and not where you actually scrolled to.

                            Greetings to you. Hope you are all well.

                            I would like to request, when you have, if you could make a plugin for a cloud storage company called Mega which is situated in New Zealand.

                            If you need more details I can send them to you in the next email.

                            I ask this because like your other plugins for GDrive, Box, Dropbox and others, I use them with Ghost and would love to have Mega storage used in the same. I think you know what I mean.

                            Thank you as always for a wonderful program. I use…

                            • Add an option to have Editor in "open with" dialog for text files

                              I would like to have Editor in the list of apps when I open text files.
                              There is only Viewer available.
                              Another option could be implementing the requested feature "Direct switch from text viewer to editor". Then we would be able to open in Viewer and to switch later to Editor.

                                Ghost Commander has the best Force Stop feature of any app! Please add a screen that lists all running apps and has a "Force Stop" button beside each app, so that it's easy to scroll through and kill apps running in the background. Right now you have to go to apps/<specific app>/manage/"force stop" for each app in order to close it.

                                • Support custom commands

                                  Git Annex is a file synchronisation tool.

                                  It has a mode where it doesn't sync file content, but only metadata for tracked files.

                                  That metadata shows up as a dangling symlink for each file.

                                  I would like to select symlink(s) in ghost commander and run a custom command that takes the symlink name as a parameter and causes git annex to download (or delete) the file.

                                      • add support for One Drive and Amazon drive.

                                        Current dropbox, box and gdrive access is great. Adding these two would simply coordinating between them all!
