[Solved]Deleting an already removed file from inside Opera says failed to delete file

  • Hi I wanted to see if you could fix this bug I found in opera.if I have a file I downloaded with opera on my phone ,then go into file manager or wherever and delete the file off the phone.then go into opera then go to the download section and them try to delete it,it does delete it as it's no longer there in the opera downloads but it says 1 download deleted then says failed to delete file. Should it not say file deleted then file doesn't exist anymore or file deleted because the file is deleted from device. It's just an annoying thing I noticed today.

    Now if you do not delete the a file from the phone beforehand and then go to opera downloads and delete the file it will say file deleted. I hope you guys can fix this annoying text

  • @live1one And what exactly is the problem? The text seems correct.

  • @leocg it should not say failed to delete file when its deleting it anyway .why would it say failed to delete file when its deleting it anyway.i should say file does not exist and delete it. I'm asking the devs to fix it because when it says failed to delete file it makes you think the file was not deleted when It was deleted allready from the phone.im just giving feedback for the browser as others have noticed the this issue and its annoying the wording and could confuse people like it did for myself and others

  • This post is deleted!
  • @live1one But that message isn't appearing only when you try to delete a file that is already deleted? If there is no file to be deleted, Opera correctly says that the operation failed.

    If the file was already deleted and you just want to remove it from the list of downloads, you should use the Clean option and not the Delete one.

    .yes that failed to delete messages only shows if the file has allready been deleted beforehand from the device.then i go to opera downloads and try to delete the file.opera immediately deletes it from the download list and its gone but then show the failed message, but opera still deletes it from the download list, so it's no different to using the clear function if the file was already deleted I just thought it was a bug.anyway cheers for clearing that
    up buddy

  • @live1one Opera removes the file from the list, as expected, but can't delete it because there is not to be deleted.
