Need to add "Delete Source Files?" warning box.

I was converting some files to AAC and I accidentally hit the 'Remove selected files from list" I thought I was hitting Clear list.

Oops. :)

"Remove selected files from list" only removes the file entries from the file list. Does not remove the files. Maybe re-phrase the command, do you have a suggestion for it ?

"Delete source files" during conversion has confirmation dialog.

"Remove selected files from list" It deletes the source files. That's why I was thinking a warning dialog is needed.

"Clear list" Only removes the list.

They're right next to each other. :)

No it does not delete the files but removes them from the file list

Two buttons do the same thing?

Remove selected files or clear whole list

Maybe they should be labeled as

"Clear selected"
"Clear all"

And put them to the same right-click menu (popup menu) section

?
