Hello;

 

I have a major complaint about ISOSel: I go to great lengths to keep my ISO's organized. This includes appropriately naming the ISO files accordingly in a unified standard as well as keeping them in a systemized folder structure. When ISOSel lists them all alphabetically.. its counter intuitive in my opinion. I blivet that it is a great option and may be something that will appeal to some users. I do not think it should not be removed, but be left as a configurable option. 

 

However, I DO think that the user should also have the option to browse ISOSel in a manner reflecting the same directory structure as on the ISO Stick either via a "Folder" view (think Windows Explorer) or a "Tree" view (think Windows Registry Editor).

 

Again, just my $0.02. All in all, ISOStick rocks, if not a bit rough around the edges.

 

Thank you,

Diatech

Out of pure curiosity WHICH EXACT unified standard? :unsure:

Standard may have not been the best choice. I see how it may imply a universal standard whereas the naming convention used is only standard to my ISO library.

In any case, as an example, All windows ISOs use the format : Microsoft Windows [version] [edition] ([kernel architecture]) with Service Pack [Service Pack #].

Yep :), "my arbitrary naming convention" would have sounded "more appropriate" ;), I was just joking, as you might well know:
The nice thing about standards is that there are so many of them to choose from.

I'm picky about folders and organizing my ISOs as well, and I agree.

My focus is elsewhere at the moment, but this is in the official todo list as an option for isosel.
