Summary0019092: app.filesystem.getFolderFromString('C:').hasSubfolders is false, but that drive has subfolders
DescriptionHow is it supposed to determine if some folder has subfolders? It was quite simple with the Windows FileSystemObject:
Set oFileObj = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
oFileObj.GetFolder(sFolder).SubFolders.Count
TagsNo tags attached.

In 5.0.4.2650 added new method updateHasSubfoldersAsync that updates hasSubfolders value based on current file system state .

i.e can be used like this:
var fld = app.filesystem.getFolderFromString('C:');
var hasSubfolders = await fld.updateHasSubfoldersAsync();
// hasSubfolders == fld.hasSubfolders here

Thanks. Maybe I was too fast when asking for this. Shouldn't (fld.getFolderList().whenLoaded().count != 0) be used instead?

Sure, it can be, but updateHasSubfoldersAsync() is faster than getFolderList().whenLoaded().count != 0
