comment When to use the folder-metaphor?
I'd say 1 to 3 items per folder. The minimal case would be 8 categories and 5 of them being folders.

comment Offering a way to cancel a process
It's a windows custom enterprise solution to create und upload project files to a document-oriented database. Since it's a client-server application, the process can take longer sometimes, depending on the connection. Also possible disconnects have to be considered.

This would still interrupt the process and generate garabge data until the user decides to continue. Is it is now, my software is able to complete a half-finished operation by just restarting it.

comment Offering a way to cancel a process
Thanks for the examples. I agree that showing the "can't undo" message every time would become annoying since it would only take longer in special cases and mentioning that it takes longer than usual could actually fit my case. I'm also still analyzing the possibility of having a timeout and the length of it.

comment Why notify the user when a device is plugged into the audio jack?
Plugging in headphone can trigger an analog or digital switch from interal speakers to external device. Having the notification depends on user expectations and software capability (can the switch even be detected?). For some users it not not be self-evident that plugging in headphones disables the speakers. I, for one, would find the noticiation pointless because I expect it to work this way. So maybe it is redundant, depending on user expectations.

comment Deletion Confirmations - Making clear what you will lose?
I know that user testing is a powerfull tool, but it also needs time and effort and a good understanding of the user base. I was looking for a more heuristic, common-sense approach since error prevention is nothing new and many people most likely have know-how on it.

comment Deletion Confirmations - Making clear what you will lose?
Thanks for your thoughts. Undo is incredibly difficult to implement and my application is not prepared for such a feature, so I don't really have that option. Thats the main reason why I need good error prevention. Does the wording in option 3 really sound mechanical? "Finance" and "Payout" are separate views in the application, so I though just listing them will suffice.

comment Textfield validation - persist, ignore, correct or delete?
Blocking save is not really an option. Being able to close the application and save quickly is a requirement. So I have to make sure the data is processable before saving.
