Snap2HTML v2.0

billon on 3 Jul 2017
  • 398KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 22 Apr 2017
  • Suggested by mmx64

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?

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 :)

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

Norton removed this as a security risk

Hi on 2010-10-01 21:45

@John It says it right there where you write your comment, above the textbox: "If your *** scanner has detected a virus in the application, please email the author directly or post to the forum. ....."

(can't even mention the word v1rus without getting a notice from Portablefreeware)

You should report the false positive to Norton.

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. :)

Unless they have very specific needs, most 'portablists' should go with the "No VLC" version -- and get portable VLC if they need it...
