....But, bug time: If I try to move a folder and there's a folder with the same name in the target, I get this warning that I can merge, but only if so-and-so that isn't actually clear. Being confused about that, I tap abort, but lo and behold, the source folder has now been deleted.
These were files I were adb pushing from my lappie, so no harm done, but bugs of this caliber are kinda... Well, let's say I'm no exactly psyched to continue using Mixplorer rn XD.
Respectfully, half of your post was about the rush you are in but you did not provide the most significant bits of information, which might determine if this is an actual bug or just a matter of usage. Please don't take this as dismissive, you may (or may not) have discovered a genuine issue, so as to the missing details.
Re: "so-and-so", presumably you are referring the section titled "Merge with:" in the panel which presents options regarding duplicate in destination. Note, that panel is a typical set of options regarding duplicates in destinations, the likes of which is used in most file managers and operating systems. You are being presented with a choice of 1) merge with,2) skip, 3) keep both, or 4) new name. The merge with option includes a conditional setting to merge only if they are not equal.
As to what might have made a file or folder disappear in your case, MiXplorer does some caching to avoid the loss of material during aborted move operations but typically when a job is aborted the files reappear. If you are managing files on the device and through ADB connection there could also be the idiosyncrasies of MTP and ot the android media scanner which could delay the time that MiXplorer sees a file managed via ADB or vice versa but that's a bit of a stretch. In any event, if the description of the options box does not help and you do not find the missing item and you think it's a bug you should provide the specific details of how to reproduce it and a log as described in the post seven of the FAQ. Bugs know no holidays.
