When I download eg. a file from the Sailfish browser it gets visible under Settings -> System -> Transfers - where I can only view and open the file and clean the hole transfer history.

However it would be nice if I could delete a single file by long-pressing or delete all files listed in Transfers permanently by an option in the pulley menu.

I find these features essential because Sailfish OS does not have a build-in file manager and some might mistake that their downloaded/transfered files might get deleted instead of just removed from the list and therefore waste space on unused files they think they've deleted.

edit retag flag offensive close delete

or add an option in the os to put all downloaded files (including mail attachments) to /tmp, so they are deleted at every reboot

For now, you could always add a crontab entry to delete downloaded files older than a week (or whatever), but there are some other things in the Downloads folder you wouldn't want to get rid of, so proceed with caution.

Yep, this has my vote. I was just thinking why my device memory is almost full and transfers list was empty. Then I discovered items using file browser in the downloads folder. Diched files I don't need and got more space to memory :)
