Deleted Album Restoration

Postby DanThe » Thu Oct 18, 2018 5:33 pm

This something that happened in CDPedia but could also apply to the other apps.

I accidentally deleted an album and was wondering if it could be restored as you would a file that is still in the Trash. If not, would it be possible to have a trash bin feature in the apps for those "Oh No!" moments?

Thanks.

Thank you for the feedback of a trash feature. The app is supposed to have undo support for this but it's something that stopped working in the latestest MacOSs that I have to fix. But that solution also requires you to realize in a timely manner that you want the album back.

Under the help menu you can reset warnings, if you have disabled them for delete. This is a helpful pause to avoid a mistake.

Thanks Conor.

This happened while adding a new album. I was removing the a long list of track artist information using repeated delete and return key sequences and for a moment lost track of how far into the list I was. My warnings were still in place and I had used the undo in the past but the deletion is totally my fault (human factor or between the chair and the keyboard :wink:).

That's why the trash container would add another safeguard.
