Sorry to use this title.
But one of my Teammates have chosen "/" for his project's exploded directory. So what happened? After compiling his project, he only found that almost everything in c:\ was wiped out!!
Oh, say goodbye to his system and works of these days.
I know this is not a disaster. Instead, it is just a mistake. But, newbies - especially those whose native tongue is not English - never stop making mistakes like this... Would there please be some machanic to prevent this from happen? At lease IDEA should show a confirming dialog when he want to delete all the files before syncronizing or cleaning on rebuild.
And in my opinion, it is possible to keep a list of those files generated by IDEA in the explode directory (and also the output directory as the same). And the delete action should only delete files in that list. Maybe if there are exception, show another confirm dialog as well.
If someone have mentioned this, forgive me please. :)
