Permit to send to removable media

Bug Description


I'm giving an idea that probably will be good.
When we press right button mouse over a file or folder, its important to have a new option in "Send To" "Local"
Local will be the mounted parts like (cdrom, flash cards, pen, hdd, etc)

Hope you put that in new version of Ubuntu.

Please reply me just to know that anyone see my message

Hi Guimenez, thanks for your report. Your idea makes sense, yeah, especially when we note that's how it works in Windows, IIRC.

But in GNOME, that feature's idea is a bit different. By design, that menu should work only for sending files to someone else. This is the package's description:

 "The Nautilus Send To plugin provides the Nautilus file manager with a context
 menu component for quickly sending files to accounts in an Evolution email
 address book, contacts on a Pidgin instant messaging list, or through Claws
 Mail (formerly Sylpheed Claws)."

Currently, people already know that this feature is used to send files to their contacts and it's probably all we want there.

In any case, this seems like a "upstream wishlist" bug.
