  • Released on 19 Mar 2016
  • Suggested by crownixx

QuickWayToFolders provides quick and easy access to a folder on your computer via a taskbar icon. The program window disappears when you click outside the window. Display modes include:

  • Desktop: Act like a mini-desktop, with small icons
  • Small Browser: very similar to Windows explorer in "details" view
  • Menu: Display folder content in a menu
  • Multiple Folders Menu: Display multiple folders content in a single menu (note that you must manually add them or nothing will appear when you click the icon)
In the "Menu" and "Multiple Folders Menu" settings, the program can act like a Program Launcher. Multiple instances of the program can be run with customizable icons and each entry is added to the taskbar.

To use the program as a root folder of a portable folder choose Options - Local path, then use a forward slash: "\". To set an image as a background place it in the application folder and set path as "image name.jpg" etc.

Executable says 1.3.5, site says 1.3.4, who to believe?

Better trust the executable. Softpedia also corrected the version number:

The version discrepancy should be noted -- the changelog at http://jacquelin.potier.free.fr/QuickWayToFolders/history.php stops at v1.3.4 ...

The program name is stylized as "Search and delete"- "delete" is not capitalized.

NonCompressibleFiles is a testing program that allows you to create on the fly one or more non-compressible files, or maximum compressible files. Can be used to test performance of compression programs, to find out if data transfer programs (such as FTP) are compressing the data, or test file behavior.

ExifToolGUI v5.16

webfork on 7 Feb 2016
  • 8MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 5 Apr 2015
  • Suggested by AlephX

ExifToolGUI is a tool for viewing/editing metadata inside a long list of file types including document, audio, video, image, PDF, and more. For images, the program can both view and edit metadata information such as camera/device used, settings on the device, and even map the location the picture was taken if the camera has GPS capability. The program also supports IPTC and XMP tags, has batch capability, and can import/export all tags.

For privacy (and file size), the program can remove all metadata from selected files.

The program is a front-end for the cross-platform ExifTool. It extracts the content of ExifTool.exe to a temp folder under the user's folder, along with thumbs, if enabled.

" ExifToolGUI v5.15, January 8,2013
Changes:

Bug fixed where sub-directories with names containing a dot could be processed when processing the parent directory. "

Everytime I use it, this program surprises me away with a LOT of data about files. If ever you want to try and understand the history, author, or other details about a given file, ExifTool is a great place to start.

Delete After Days v2.0.0

webfork on 7 Apr 2016
  • 469KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 14 Jan 2015
  • Suggested by DarkShadow

Delete After Days functions as a delayed removal tool to help avoid the problems of a standard delete function. Files and folders may be dropped into a standard desktop trash icon, whereupon the program will prompt for a time before its removal (1, 6, or 12 months).

Useful for making doubly sure you don't need a file, ongoing system cleanup, or for general system upkeep. Note that the program will not delete files that are copied or moved and must be running to delete expired files.
