B4, Backup history Browser behavior
« on: September 12, 2014, 07:13:21 pm »

In this dialog the top list is populated with
Today
Yesterday
Wednesday
Tuesday
Monday
Older


If I click on a specific file, then I get "Files saved since: <date> <time>
Seems OK.

Only "Older" and "Today" have files in them (since I just upgraded from V18, and I haven't been using V18 lately).


If I click "Today", then "Files saved since: <blank>", and no files listed.
Though if I expand "Today", it shows a bunch of files edited.


If I click "Yesterday"[size=78%], then "Files saved since: <blank>", and several of the files I edited Today are displayed.[/size]
[/size][size=78%]Same for Wednesday, and Monday, but "Tuesday" shows no-files edited since.[/size]
[/size][size=78%]If I click "Older"[/size][/size], then "Files saved since: <blank>", and several of the files I edited Today are displayed.
[/size]
[/size]HM....
[/size]Exactly what is displayed when I click on each of the sections varies, but I'm not sure
[/size][size=78%]The set of files displayed when I click "Tuesday" for instance, may or may not be different that the set of files displayed for "Wednesday".[/size]
[/size][size=78%]Also, sometimes when I click "Tuesday" I get "[/size][/size]Files saved since: <blank>" and sometimes I get "Files saved since: <date> <time>" - where Data/Time coorespond to one of the files listed in the "Today" section.[size=78%]

[/size][size=78%]Remember, I have no files that were actually edited except for Today and Older.[/size]
[/size]

You mean if you select "Today" in the top tree no files show?  This is expected behavior.  The label should probably be blanked out though.

No, well sorta. (**)


If you select "Yesterday", it filters, but it displays "Files saved since: <BLANK>"
But it is inconsistent - Sometimes, for some days, it displays something.
Currently, clicking "Yesterday" shows "Tuesday, October 07, 2014 12:06:38pm"
Clicking any other day shows blank.

It should:
#1: Display the date in the same format as the dates for each file.
#2: When you click a day you should display either "10/7/2014" or "10/7/2014 12:00:00am"

(**) WRT "Today", "Yesterday"
If I click "Yesterday" it filters to show only files modified today.
I think it would make more sense to filter for all files modified yesterday and today.
When I click "Today", for it to filter based on Today 12:00:00am.

If you select one of the "level 1" items (Yesterday, Sunday, etc), it operates as though you selected the item above.  I thought that this would be convenient.  If it's really too confusing I can change it.
