  • 11MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 6 Nov 2017
  • Suggested by I am Baas

WinDataReflector is a lightweight file synchronization and backup tool. It combines rapid file comparison and fast transfer algorithms into a simple and clear interface, offering a visual comparison of files and folders before synchronization / backup. It supports two-way synchronization and customizable rules.

The program can run operations in the background while you configure new ones in a separate tab.

Note: Linking to an older version (thanks smaragdus) as the latest "free" version cannot be used to synchronize more than 150 files, create more than 3 tasks or use automation (realtime, USB detection, scheduler).

I downloaded version 2.0.0 thinking it was 100% freeware, but the free version can not be used to sync more than 150 files, create more than 3 tasks or use automation.

Well that sure SUX, I don't understand why they put stuff in freeware and then hobble it so it can't really be used efficiently. Its like offering you a free sandwich with no bread, just doesn't make any sense. I don't even waste my time on this kinda stuff, as soon as I find out its so limited in what you can do I bail. That's why the comment section is so important.... at least to me it is :)

I don't see a 64-bit version but I'm gonna give this a try even though I am happy with the File Renamer I use (A Renamer), but ya never know I wouldn't wanna miss out on the best software ever :) lol

GREAT for renaming using regular expression (regex) that contains lookbehind. It also accepts the plus symbol (+) inside lookbehind. Other renamers does not support any of these, not even Advanced Renamer and Bulk Rename Utility.

It can apply multiple regex parameter separately for the same batch.

Issues are there are no way to apply regex only to file name and not to the extension. It also needs admin privilege to run.

ripu on 2018-10-18 07:42

My mistake, it does not need admin privilege to run.

I realise that this is a very old thread but the update info shows v3.0.8 was released on 1st Feb 2018. I've just tested Bat_To_Exe_Converter_(x64).exe, i.e. the 64-bit portable exe of v3.0.8. I used a 2-line BAT:

echo This is a test
pause

I compiled this, together with an icon, and submitted the result to VirusTotal. I'm disconcerted to see a score of 21/66 (https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/5ac7112fae2a252a5faa72199587cea903d97194cea45934df4fd1fecc326af3/analysis/1518532866/) and thought I would share this. Whilst I was expecting a few false positives (especially from less well-known AV products), 21 red flags out of 66 seems high. Does anyone have any recommendations for a different product? I'm retired and rarely need this so hoping for both freeware and portable.

webfork on 2018-02-13 22:15

RickC: You're right to look at high VirusTotal ratios as you did, but I have tested this program many times over the years without issue. As noted earlier in the comments, programs like this will always show up on scanners.

zorro on 2018-02-21 16:08

Interesting enough - when you visit the homepage and try to download the program, the button doesn't work, it's kind of greyed out (observation as of today, 21. Feb. 2018). Disabling all blockers doesn't help. The direct download link in this entry works however.

PassMark OSFMount v2.0.1001

billon on 22 Mar 2018
  • 6MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 22 Mar 2018
  • Suggested by Stone Tablet

OSFMount is a collection of virtual drive tools that allows mounting local disk image files as a drive letter, RAM disks and mounting CD or DVD images (for simplicity or speed). Supported image types include IMG, DD, ISO, BIN, NRG, SDI, AFF, AFM, AFD, VMDK (used by VMware), VHD (Virtual PC) and more.

The program is ideal for machines without a CD/DVD drive and, as most images are bit-for-bit copies of disk partitions, many programs will treat them as the real thing, enabling programs that require a program disc. For disk images, the program can give access to these files without booting or other required visualization software. RAM disks have a variety of uses including high speed caches, programs with frequent/intense disk reads/writes and some database applications.

Command line tools are also included.

Note: The developer warns: "it is recommended that 64-bit Windows is used when large disk image files are to be mounted."

@freakazoid: CDmage is ancient, I'm surprised someone even uses it anymore... :)

skall on 2015-02-23 10:21

whenever i try to mount an image (different formats), the message 'wrong parameter' appears and the new drive is not selectable? i am using the 64bit version and have admin rights.

any hints what might cause this?

i might be wrong, but it seems like this is the only up to date portable virtual cdrom software for win8.1?

Portable Reviewer on 2015-09-15 12:36

@Midas CDmage works like a charm unlike PassMark OSFMount despite "being ancient". Nothing ancient about it. PassMark OSFMount couldn't detect my image file properly as @freakazoid experienced. In fact very few free portable mount tools could handle my image file properly. I'm surprised you don't use CDmage to mount......
