Rejetto, here's another one:

open "My Computer" and drag&drop to HFS3 complete drives C:, D: and/or networkdrive(s):

The name of the drive is displayed as empty space, the tree can be unfolded.

Adding a second or even more drives, gives a message that the folder "" already exists and renaming is suggested.
Accepting results in "(1)" etc.

i repeated the experiment, now using only the standard Windows widget.
the previous was VirtualTree, a good widget, but 1MB extra code, that would make harder for people to recompile HFS, and harder for me to integrate this technology in HFS.

Since the standard widget is less powerful, i had to introduce the empty label you can see in every empty folder.
I'm unsure this is a worsening, maybe it will be easier for someone to understand that the folder is empty.

i know there is some flickering.

i'm interested in opinions and bug reports.

edit: fixed: the drive name was not displayed
edit: fixed: some problems moving items

new name collision policy:
   - if a virtual item already exists, the one read from disk is skipped
   - if a collision arise, the system offer to rename one of the 2 nodes
now you see where the file is pointing
some bug fixed
file rename fixed


edit: syncronization problem solved

I fixed some bugs, but there is one that i can rarely reproduce.
If someone tell me an exact procedure to reproduce it, i can fix it.
Please i need your help.

The non-always-working procedure is
- add a folder from disk
- create a (virtual) folder in the root
- move one file from the folder(disk) to the folder(virtual)
- rename this file on disk, repeatedly
- while you rename it on disk, watch it being renamed on the window program. sometimes it stops on an old name, and sync is lost.

i need to understand that "sometimes". how to do it, exactly.
thank you for your help building HFS 3 ;)
