  • Previous file copys and moves stored somewhere?

    Assume I use BC to compare two folder (trees).
    Afterwards I perform (inside BC) some files+folder copys and moves.

    As far as I know it is stored which initial folders are compared.

    But what about the files and folders I COPYed and MOVEd?
    Is this information stored somewhere as well?

    How do I turn off/disable completely the storing of which files
    are MOVEd or COPYed?

    Are you referring to our MRU list, which can be a dropdown and shows the text of the last location used? We store this as part of our settings. We do not have a method to clear the list, but you can reduce the list to a size of 1.

    To do so, go to the Tweaks dialog (Ctrl+Shift+T), and on the General tab, set the "Limit for most recently used (MRU) lists:" to 1.

      Where can I access these recent MRU? I found no "show recent compares" or similar menu?

        The MRU is the dropdown in the Copy To Folder dialog (or the folder paths), when you click and it shows the history of paths you have.

        I assumed this was what you meant by "the information stored" on "copied or moved files". If not, please send a full screen screenshot of the interface showing the exact text you are seeing that you wish to not store.
