Major Design Flaw / Usability Issue !
I lost my primary hard drive and had to install a new one and restore from a two day old backup.
After working for over a week to get the system back to where it should be I decided to use a Bitdefender Scan of newly reloaded Primary hard drive.
Unfortunately, I did not catch that this was NOT limited only to my primary drive and the scanner checked all of my hard drives (18TB in total, but only about 9TB used.
At the end of the scan, I expected to have a window showing any "hit" so I could decide what to do, unfortunatley the Scan was actually a SCAN AND AUTOMATIC DELETE which deleted 481 of my files, many of which were between 10-20 years old due to "Suspicious Cloud". Many of these were important files and emails for both personal and business reasons.
That was only the beginning of my problems, I clicked the "View resolved issues" link which opened the Solved issues window to see that;
- The window is not resizable so I could not see the entire Path and Filename of the files deleted, however I could when I hovered over each individual entry.
- There was no way to resize the columns to see more of the filename/path.
- The window is somehow protected so I could not even copy the data, ctrl+a would do nothing, dragging the mouse to select items would not work and even trying to capture the window image of the text with snagit would not work since there is NO WAY to see the complete filename/path.
- There is no LOG file created that holds the filename/path
So now I must manually go through all 481 deleted entries by hovering over each one and then manually writing down the filename/path by hand.
Not a pleasant, or quick, process.
Having spent over 40 years in IT serving as everything from programmer, systems analyst, business analyst and project manager there is just NO EXCUSE for the Design flaw or Complete Lack of Usability in this area !
