File management

Post by fatherhood » 05 Mar 2009, 21:53

Hi

Just installed the screen saver and I really like the product. The concern I have is how do I limit the amount of images it downloads? Also, it would be nice to have it automatically clean up older images so you don't have an ever growing directory.

Hello Fatherhood,

Currently there is no way to limit the number of downloaded images. How do you see it? Let users set the number of downloaded images per session, per day... Maybe other options?

As for the cleanup... It's a good idea too! I'll see what can be done about it.

Thank you very much for your suggestions!

Hi Maxim

Yes, the number of images or maybe overall daily download size in MB, but number of daily images would probably be more effective. That coupled with an automatic purging system would prevent the screen saver from chewing up significant amounts of bandwidth and disc space.

I propose to make a limiter of disk spase, that ESS uses at HDD. You can make it, for example, 1 Gb. And let ESS delete pictures, that downloaded earlier. I saw that files have the date and time of downloading. I think that the limit of files downloaded per day is not useful.

And I can say, that ESS - is the screensaver of my dream! It's great. I also want to propose you make categories of ships, railway and "under the sea".

Thanks a lot, Anton
