Total Download Size

Post by Massive » Wed Apr 27, 2005 10:14 pm

There is still something there is missing, which always confused me: why isn't it there ?

You know which articles you are gonna download You also know, how big those articles are. Would it be possible to "preview" the total download size when you select a couple of downloads, as well as a total downloading size in the download Queue tab?

To show the total size of the files selected (and more details of the queue) right click in the queue listing and select Queue Info from the contextual menu. It lists
Total entries and size
Total selected entries and size
Total paused entries and size
Estimated download time for unpaused entries

The download queue tab shows the size of your total download queue and the size of the unpaused downloads still to be downloaded. It is the very first header line under all the tabs when the Download Queue tab is selected.

I think he means before you actually start leeching them, I sometimes could do with that feature :)

Well you can queue them paused and check them out in the download queue, before actually leeching them

If I had a really good tagline, I would put it here.

AFA selecting overviews in the Active Group window, the quantity is shown in the title bar of the window. Maybe the total selected size can be added there as well, right next to the number of overviews selected.

True, just my pc can take quite a while to move files into the download folder so i never bother, and even longer on super search
