Description steve 2016-10-31 18:14:15 UTC
The recovery dialog is a bit convoluted. Users should not have to "finish" (what does that even mean?) the recovery dialog in cases where only a single file is recovered. see other fields for details

Steps to Reproduce:
1. user is asked to Recover or Cancle
2. select "Recover"

Actual Results:  
disclaimer: this concerns only the case where a single file has been recovered.

user is presented with dialog shown in screenshot. dialog suggests that one file was successfully recovered.

user is super happy. but...

Expected Results:
... why does the user have to click on "finish" in order to actually proceed? what value is gained in that step?

I suggest the following more sane workflow:

1. if the file is successfully recovered → open the damn file (: done
2. if the file cannot be recovered, show a dialog and explain why and what happened.

Makes sense?

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No
