What's new in this version

Nothing new. Just republishing the NetBeans 6.1 version for 7.2 because I have tested it out in 7.2 and everything mostly works fine. The only issue is the output window. The module gets its own tab and apparently creates 2 of them. So, it is a minor issue.

Introduction

A module to delete large directories without consuming disk and processor resources. I designed this module because I am often deleting large Netbeans source distributions. I sometimes have a cleanup session or what ever you call it. This consumes my disk IO and makes other processes run slower. This tool helps get around that while being able to delete old files and cleanup my hard drive. Once installed. Click on a directory in any view and choose "Delete without limiting system (CPU and Disk Friendly)". The directory will be deleted. While deleting progress will be shown in the NetBeans progress bar. THERE IS NO UNDO, SO BE SURE WHAT YOU WANT TO DELETE IS WHAT YOU "REALLY" WANT TO DELETE!

I think that is being too picky for this process; Free; OSS

Yes, I know that it does that. It did that in 7.2 as well. The point is that it works and is useful now, and isn't something I plan on spending too much time on unless it does something bad or work than what it is doing now. I downloaded the 7.2 binary and republished after testing on 7.3. It works just the same as in 7.2. I may look at the bug, but if we have such a threshold, then we are limiting our community much more than we need to which I do not agree.

Double output

Hi,
folders and files deletion works fine, but I have two identical 'Standard output' tabs in the NetBeans Output panel; both having the same content (something like 'Successfully deleted XXX files and directories.').

Tested on NB 7.3 with JDK 6u43 and 7u17. Windows 7 x86_32.
Could you take a look at this ? Thx!

Works in 7.2

I tested the version for 6.1 in NetBeans 7.2 and all still seems to work fine less a simple issue related to the output window where the messages from the module are output in their own tab now for some reason. Anyways, I don't plan on publishing another version of this unless it simply will not work, but wanted to let everyone know it does indeed work with 7.2.

Re: Delete current project

I'll see what I can do. This is probably related to an API change in the NB core. I bet I need to call FileUtil.refreshFor and pass the removed folder path. I'll see what I can do.

Delete current project

If you delete the current project from the Files Tab, it is still shows up in the Projects Tab. It would be nice if the Projects Tab refreshed.
