Hello and thank you for your feedback.
- not available
The download server was offline for serveral time. The server is again online since yesterday.
I'm sorry for that.

- the green ticks
The green ticks are only an indicator. They do not have any function right now.
If you can not save a profile, in general this means something isn't set or the source directory is identical to the destination directory.

These settings are at least mandatory to get a working profile:
- Profile type Express
- Source and destination directory set
- The profile name

If you still have the green ticks, please open the updater (menu ? or F1) and download the updated version.
There are also some litte less important tweaks in the new version which is coming this evening (german time UTC+1 ~8 PM).
The ticks have been removed for the moment because they are not working correctly.

I am really sorry for this problems. I'll do my best to get all this working. For the moment the version coming this evening works fine.
I'll investigate the timestamp problem too before releasing the update this evening.

All feedback is welcome and I'll always read everything to make you a good piece of software =)

InsideClipboard v1.15

billon on 7 May 2017
  • 65KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 6 May 2017
  • Suggested by JohnW

InsideClipboard displays the binary content of all formats that are currently stored in the clipboard, allowing you to save the content of specific format into a binary file. This is helpful because although something copied or cut from an application can be in many different formats, Windows' main clipboard application only displays text or bitmaps. InsideClipboard can display many more stored formats.

SFV Ninja v1.3.6

billon on 7 May 2017
  • 1MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 6 May 2017
  • Suggested by I am Baas

SFV Ninja allows you to check the integrity of any number of files. After running on a file list, the program can then check all files on that list, with the option to only verify/update only newly added files. The program can recursively scan/generate a folder for files and load them all at once, using relative paths whenever possible.

Useful to quickly checking system files or archives for modification/corruption. Supports many commonly-used hashing algorithms listed here from fast/simple to slow/secure: SFV (CRC32), MD5, SHA-1, and SHA-256.

SearchMyFiles v2.82

billon on 5 May 2017

SearchMyFiles is a powerful alternative to the standard Windows search. It allows you to easily find files by wildcard, last modified/created/last accessed time, file attributes, content (text or binary search), and file size. The program is non-indexing, meaning it searches the drive directly, which is often slower but more accurate.

Can also be used to detect duplicate files via the "Search Mode" drop-down box.

Rapid Environment Editor v9.1 build 936

billon on 8 May 2017
  • 4MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 7 May 2017
  • Suggested by JohnW

Rapid Environment Editor (RapidEE) is an environment variables editor. It includes an easy to use GUI and replaces the small and inconvenient Windows edit box, located in the System Information section.

"Environment variables are specially named string aliases for basic system properties. They contain information such as drive, path, or file name. They control the behavior of various programs. For example, the TEMP environment variable specifies the location in which programs place temporary files." (source)

Craunch on 2012-07-03 13:45

Midas, I've just been playing with this and ran into the problem you described. On investigation I realised that there are two type of environment variables: Text String and Expandable String. Text String variables (orange tag) will not expand contained references to other environment variables when they are used. Expandable String variables (blue tag) will expand their references when used. You can change their type by F6 or via the right-click menu. These two types seem to be a feature of how Windows now stores environment variables internally.

A few judicious type changes got my environment where I wanted it to be.

Midas on 2012-07-04 20:27

Thanks for that, Craunch. Vital info, IMHO. I'll look into it ASAP. :)

Snap2HTML takes a "snapshot" of folder structures on your harddrive and saves to an HTML file. The output is a modern, application-like view that feels like a real application, similar to Explorer. The program uses a treeview with folders that you can click to view the contained files. Includes a built-in file search with wildcards and breadcrumb-style path all within a single, easily distributed file.

Directory data can also be saved as text, CSV (spreadsheet), or JSON.

@shnbwmn: just curious if you ever tried DirHTML?
(http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=308)

shnbwmn on 2016-04-07 14:01

No I hadn't; thank Midas. Tried it out and while it has lots of options, I still prefer Snap2HTML because of the nesting in the tree view, better visual clarity and speed of viewing. We're talking about 400k files/folders that are displayed in a single HTML, which Snap creates and displays quickly. The .htmls that DirHTML creates for much smaller directories are far larger than that of Snap's for my entire external drive.

For comparison, I created a test snapshot of my \Portable directory, where all my portable apps live, and DirHTML's output was 47Mb, nearly crashing Firefox and completely unviewable, whereas Snap's output for my entire external is around 32Mb, opens in seconds and easily navigated as if in a normal Explorer window.

I'll definitely be keeping your suggestion though, because it's useful for other types of directory snapshotting :)

webfork on 2016-04-22 19:49

Excellent program. A nice interface, an easy to navigate format, and a search program all inside a single HTML. Nice.

There are a lot of great ways to compress files and folders quickly and easily, but most people are only familiar with ZIP. PeaExtractor's broad support means that it frees us up to send the latest and best compression formats without wondering if the recipient will have difficulty opening it.

Although there are a variety of other ways to add a password to Office and ZIP files, there is no PDF encryption component (either read or write) in the free versions of PDF-XChange, Foxit, and Adobe Acrobat. As a result, this is a very nice addition for PDF users.

spicydog on 2017-01-21 12:37

Works fine for zip and pdf files but nothing happens on xls(x) and doc(x) files :(

Am I missing something?

webfork on 2017-01-22 20:34

@spicydog: there is a known bug with creating a read-only password, which is being explored by the author. However, I just recently tested view without issue, and had no issues with DOCX or ZIP files. Files were generated with Office 2010 and 7zip. Please post in forums (or on the github page) if you keep having issues.

Anytime I try to view Ports is causes the program to close, every single time. I'm using Windows 10 Home x64 so that may be the problem. Wish it would work so I could monitor the ports on occasion but maybe can be fixed in the future. :)

WARNING: this no longer comes as a direct download of the zip, but as an executable downloader which downloads the zip, but in the process you have to decline installation of about four different annoyanceware toolbars and addons. Also the downloader itself is not portable; it leaves folders in AppData.

thepiney on 2013-06-18 21:24

When you click the download link, a page opens with the download, just un-check the "Use our download manager and get recommended downloads" box. You'll get the zip file that you want. My Avast keeps blocking the site/file so I just disabled. After download I checked using VirusTotal and comes up clean.

Does not seem to decrypt properly when using blowfish. I am unsure if it is the encrypt of decrypt side that is causing the issue. RC4 encryption works perfectly.

kiest on 2010-07-23 02:51

Does not encrypt/decrypt properly with all methods, but RC4 works fine. When CompressData is enabled, the decrypted file is smaller sized. When CompressData is disabled, the decrypted file seems to be the correct size but it is not the original file (checksum mismatch/content unreadable).

This one is great. Unlike the other magnifier in the database ("OneLoupe"), it can also magnify constantly changing values on the display (OneLoupe sticks to the first value when moved over a changing field). I use Magnifixer to magnify the constantly changing display of a stopwatch ("1Time", also in the database), so I can check the watch when I'm doing something several metres away from the screen.
