    Hi D&C:

    Simply take the extra .txt off the end of the file and drag/send it to where it originated from. You will get a warning of course, saying it's maybe not safe to do, blah!

    I presume you mean some of the test files you played with, otherwise why would you want to restore 'baddies'.

    Cheers, TAS

    Precisely, Tass. Thanks! :D Another Suggestion for next release: Automate this process.

    Speaking of Copy/Move to... do you have this little handy utility in your Right Click Context Menu Options.

    It's a VBS script to add the options of Copy or Move to...... any file, etc. to a designated folder.

    Verrrry handy.. I do a lot of copy/move to different sections and it save me having to open Windows Explorer and navigating to the spot, especially when it goes to the same area a lot, as it remembers the last time you opened it.

    I will upload the .zip next post.

    LOL, of course, you will have to remove VBS from WG's blocked listings...

    Cheers, TAS

    Actually, when I drag a file from one folder to another using the right-click button, a menu automatically pops up like the one below.

    Ummm yeah, but they are stating HERE as opposed to Copy/Move TO...

    In other words it copies whatever you last "clipboarded" to the designated area you are currently in.

    This is the window you get using the one I sent.

    I clicked on a .txt file [highlighted at top] and selected Move To.... and you get this window, navigate to wherever, and click MOVE button.

    But the automated "move back to original position" in which the additions are removed would be a good extra option.
    Was it posted in the WormGuard4 suggestions thread already?
    Think not, maybe nobody ever wanted to restore a possible baddy or left them in place.
