markin files to delete

Post by Seylione »

I use the free version of Dupcleaner. Worked well, but today, impossible to mark any file whether by clicking the box or pressin 'space'
I looked everywhere as far as I know: no solution. Where could I be wrong ou should I buy a proper version
Thanksfor a tip, Lionel

If you are unable to mark a file for deletion, either by clicking on the checkbox or using the Selection Assistant, this means the file is in a Protected folder.
You can tell this by the padlock icon next to the file name

You can unprotect a folder tree by right-clicking on the row and selecting the 'Unprotect folder tree' command.

Folders are initially flagged for protection in the 'Folders to Search' list in the Scan Location tab. You can click on the button in the 'Protected' column to change the status before the scan.
