Format option
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

In Nemo and Deepin File Manager you can format devices by right click and select format option.
Dolphin don't have that option, that's not kool.

How it looks in Deepin File Manager:

+1 for the idea. Dolphin is often used to differentiate between drives so having the format option right there would be kool.
Should it open the KDE Partition Manager?

KDE Partition Manager is too hard. It is better if make a something simple and easy for formatting.

Thanks for proposing it! In general we track individual bugs and feature requests in bugs.kde.org, not here on Phab. Phab is best used for task coordination for projects that require multiple bugfixes or close work across multiple repos.

As it happens, we already have a bug report requesting this feature : https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=377253. Ideas, suggestions, and mockups should be added there.

...and we also have a generic request for more disk-related context menu items: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=224056, for which we have one patch submitted already: D20062

Closing this.
