If you have Select Across Directories enabled, each time the directory
is changed and another file is highlighted, the previous file retains
its highlighted or selected status. Therefore, when you issue the
COPY, all files that have been highlighted are copied. The MOVE
command functions in the same way.
The DELETE command also functions in much the same way; however, you
are prompted before each file is deleted.
The CHANGE ATTRIBUTE command prompts you to choose between changing
attributes for the last file highlighted or all highlighted files.
The RENAME command prompts you for a new filename for each highlighted
Select Across Directories does not support selecting files across
To avoid the above problem, disable the Select Across Directories
option, then choose Deselect All from the File menu.
