Earl v1.0.0

Checker on 24 May 2015
  • 934KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 26 Dec 2013
  • Suggested by Checker

Earl allows you to convert .URL files into standard Window shortcut files (.LNK). This can be helpful if you use an application that doesn't understand .URL files but does understand standard Windows shortcuts. For instance, some icon docks won't handle a .URL file dropped on them, but can work with regular Windows shortcuts.

TreeCopy v1.11

  • Suggested by usdcs

TreeCopy is a unique directory copier taking the various folders the source folder to a set of empty target folders. Its unique from similar tools as it copies only the directory structure and not the files. This is useful for developers

This functionality is similar to the windows command line "xcopy" i.e. XCOPY source [destination] /T /E, but this tool allows this action without needing to remember command line switches.

300kB of clumsy GUI instead of one-line batch file? I think not!

I like user interface, but TreeCopy do not copy my file or folder.

@ zvikai: Thanks ... and updated.

FYI, Watch 4 Folder freeware version now limited to monitoring just one folder -- for accuracy, it should be renamed to Watch 1 Folder...

You can have a somewhat complicated folder structure you built for a project and want to use it in a new one

I was the one that gave the idea to SKWIRE for this program. What I needed it for was to replicate the file structure of the target system (production) on my developer machine so I could test out my scripts on file naming and manipulation. The advantage was I didn't have to copy the entire 50GB but only one zip file to recreate the structure :)

Another possible situation is when you are going to copy a LOT of files from one disk to another. By first creating the empty files, you end up with all the directories together and defragged, instead of fragmented all over the disk. Then, when you overwrite the empty files with the real files, the directories stay defragmented.
That's why Microsoft's Robocopy utility has the /CREATE switch, by the way. It does exactly what this utility does, and is already installed in every Windows since XP.

Belvedere v0.7.1

Andrew Lee on 12 Feb 2013

Belvedere is an automated file management tool that works between two or more directories. It allows you to create advanced, multi-level rules to move, copy, delete, rename, or open files based on their name, extension, size, creation date, and more. Also allows for compression, recursive (all files and subfolders) copy, as well as recycle bin management.

Note: The program processes files based on a variable number of milliseconds. By default, this is set to 3,000,000 milliseconds, or 50 minutes. Modify the Sleeptime under Preferences for more or less frequent changes. For example, for every 24 hours, enter 86,400,000, for every minute, enter 60,000, or for instant change, enter 100.
