Disk Usage View

Toggle Cache

Click this toggle to change mode so that directory lists are cached. This can speed up browsing, and is especially appropriate when browsing a (mostly) read-only directory structure, such as an anonymous FTP site. Regardless of this setting, Hopper will refresh the directory when it completes an operation that directly affects it (e.g., hopper will refresh the destination directory when a transfer completes).

Toggle Hidden Files

Launch Xterm

Click to launch an xterm window on the system the directory window is connected to. xterm will be started in the directory currently being displayed. This button is enabled only when Hopper is running in an X Window system and the directory window is connected to a local Unix system or to a remote system via SSH.

Make Directory

Click to pop up a dialog where you can enter the name of a directory you wish to create in the directory currently being displayed. If you specify a relative path, parent directories will be created as needed.

Delete

Click to delete the selected files. By default you will be prompted for confirmation before any files are removed.

Stop

Click to stop the current directory-type operation.
