Hey,

first I want to tell you it is really annoying to be forced to register to a forum to report a bug. Get some email ready for this please...

But lets talk about the "bug" I registered for, it is pretty serious for me.

I use:
  • Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.10240] 64 bit Education N
  • Classic Shell 4.2.5
The bug:
  • System SSD, partition called C has 25GB free space
  • Extern HDD, partition called G hast 400GB free space
  • FolderC that is located in C is "pinned to classic shell" --> C:\...\AppData\Roaming\ClassicShell\Pinned\FolderC
  • FolderG that is located in G is "pinned to classic shell" --> G:\...\AppData\Roaming\ClassicShell\Pinned\FolderG
  • When I want to transfer more than 25GB from FolderC to FolderG explorer.exe tells me there is not enough space lef.
So you got some pointer/linking-functionallity, that seems to always use the installation partition of Classic Shell (AppData), instead of linking straight to the right folder. Was this designchoice because of user priviledges?

When I want to transfer even small amounts of data, I need to open the folders within explorer.exe, so the whole purpose of Classic Shell is kind of dead for me, if there a solution for this? How do I really open the pinned folders? I want to click on start, double-click on a folder, and this must open its original location, not the AppData pointer/link, please help!

Thanks for reading.

Folders are pinned as links to allow you to view their contents in the start menu. If you want to just pin the folder itself, first create a shortcut to it (for example on the Desktop) and then pin the shortcut.
