Would like option to delete to recycle bin

Mar 19, 2010 at 1:43 PM

The software works great for me, but occasionally it doesn't convert a whole program.  For example last night, I recorded three 30 min shows at 8:30, 9:00 and 9:30.  The 8:30 and 9:30 shows were converted correctly.  The 9:00 show only converted to a 4 min program instead of 30 min.  The original WTV file is now lost.  I wish there was an option to have the files delete into the recycle bin, so I could recover it for the occasional time when WtvWatcher doesn't convert it correctly.

I should note than when this happens, the program did not generate an error code and says it completed the task successfully, even though it did not.

I had the same problem too!  I tried to record two shows simultaneously and the file sizes should be 3.6 gigs or so for an hour show each.  However when i looked this morning it wasn't anywhere near that size.  WTV didn't report an error.  The WTV file is gone. :(

Can we please have a recycle bin option or... maybe some sort of algorithm that can compare the before and after size and it should be within a size varation of a certain percentage (because we all know dvr-ms and wtv sizes aren't exactly the same).

Thank you for such an amazing (life-saving) software pbruce!

Due to overwhelming demand, I've added this option in the most recent update. However, I am testing the code thoroughly in house before posting the update. Look for the update this weekend.

Thanks for your feedback, too bad I have a full time job, that I can't push WtvWatcher updates out faster.
