What foobar does when file is not found

I have, like a lot others I would assume, external hard-drives with my music.  I have organised playlists in foobar, pointing to the files on the harddrives.  However, some times either the drive letter change (I know I can fix this is the administration settings) or I simply have it not turned on. If I by accident then choose a song thats linked to the turned-off/not plugged in hard drive, it will go through all the songs till it finds one that is actually available.  Having about 200GB of audio in the playlist, this makes me have to wait a little too long (with the window of all the lost files) for my liking.

I was wondering if there could be a form of ctrl-c command or other way to cancel searching for files if not found.

In v .8 there was a "stop on file open errors" setting

Why did you remove that???

Yeah thanks guys. I guess its sort of a workaround. Would like it to rather pop up an easy stop-search button.
