Reply 2 of 12 reid Posts: 190member July 27, 2005 1:34PM Guess you shouldn't have checked the little "don't show this warning again" box when you first tried to delete a playlist. Then at least you'd get a warning if you accidentally hit the delete key. Reply 3 of 12 kwsanders Posts: 327member July 27, 2005 7:20PM .

A minute later, I wondered why it was taking so long. It deleted my entire library Good thing I had it all on my iPod. Reply 5 of 12 aquatic Posts: 5,602member July 28, 2005 9:30AM YES. I've done this too! This is indeed a HUGE issue. Let's all write in to Apple, please, in Feedback on their site. Thanks.

Apple put the warning in, and let users disable the warning when they don't want to be treated like newbies who need their hand held just in case. No amount of systemic intervention can fix that, its purely PEBCAK. Any more indepth attemt to fix that just gets you the the old Windows three in a row "Do you really want to do that?" problem which is just as annoying as Clippy.

You 'trash' it, but then you have to empty the trash to actually delete it. Something similar for iTunes songs wouldn't be a bad idea. Heck, it could even *use* the Trash as the holding area for files to be deleted.Playlists and such are even easier.Yeah, clicking through or disabling the dialog and then making a mistake is definitely PEBCAK, but there's a good mechanism sitting *right there* to be used.

But all sorts of important stuff like playlists, playcounts, and start/end times are gone forever. Reply 11 of 12 aquatic Posts: 5,602member July 29, 2005 10:39AM Well to be fair I mean they do have a warning dialogue, but most people disable it, plus, a warning isn't as effective as an Undo. Reply 12 of 12 hotoru Posts: 1member March 6, 2008 9:53PM Recently spent more than an hour unchecking songs to free up room on the ipod. Accidently clicked ?alt check on one and unchecked whole list. Had to do it all over again. Things like that make you want to pull your hair out. This time I am using rating of one star on my unchecked items so I can easily filter them in case I need to uncheck again. I cannot seem to find a way to sort or filter by UNchecked items (you can include only checked items but that does not help in this situation)Hotoru Sign In or Register to comment.
