FastCopy v3.40 Updated

billon on 9 Dec 2017
  • 560KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 9 Dec 2017
  • Suggested by pplknownothin

FastCopy is a file copy and synchronization tool with a variety of available extras. It uses different strategies (multi-threading, buffering) to help ensure maximum device throughput, as well as optional verification to make sure data is transferred correctly. It does not use the system cache, so other processes do not get bogged down during the copy process and a speed setting is also available, including pause. It supports Unix-style include/exclude wildcards filters.

Alternatively, PortableApps' FastCopy Portable is also available.

@webfork I tried that, but it did not give any option. It just overwrote without asking. What I would like is, if there are files with same name, give me option in popup. Sometimes I will overwrite, sometimes I will cancel it and otherwise I may want to rename it.

webfork on 2016-01-31 00:56

@ripu: I misunderstood your question - I'd recommend Dsynchronize http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=719 with "Ask before replacing files" checked, though it won't help with the rename element.

billon on 9 Dec 2017
  • 15MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 9 Dec 2017
  • Suggested by I am Baas

Balabolka is a feature-rich program to read text aloud from a variety of file types including DOC, RTF, PDF, ODT, FB2 and HTML. The program uses Microsoft's own Speech API 4 and 5, but lets you fine tune various voice parameters, including rate and pitch and a substitution list can also be applied to improve the quality of the voice's articulation. The program supports customized font and background color, skins, control reading from the system tray or by the global hotkeys.

Balabolka can also save the synchronized text to external LRC files or in MP3 tags inside the audio files. When the audio file is played with players on a computer or on modern digital audio players, the text will be displayed synchronously (in the same way as lyrics for songs).

Also includes batch conversion tools from of a wide variety of document formats to audio or plain text and a file compare tool, file splitter and screen magnification window.

  • Added the option "Allow to use Spell Checking API for Windows 8/10". Since Windows 8, the spell checking is built-in to the operating system. But it works slow, and its using will slow down the application start.
  • Small improvements.
  • Resources for Slovenian language were updated.

Your instructions above say "Launch Start Tor Browser.exe and answer a few quick questions about your connection". Those instructions are misleading and confusing. I was stumped for a while until I realized the "Start Tor Browser" file is a shortcut, NOT an executable. Please correct the instructions by removing the text ".exe".

Version 4.5.2 available.

smaragdus on 2015-09-05 03:36

I needed to connect to an onion site and downloaded the latest version (5.0.2) but Australis makes Tor Browser absolutely terrible and unusable- I do not want to install heaps of add-ons just to restore features the Mozilla idiots removed. I had an earlier version of Tor Browser (3.6.0- before the advent of the abominable Australis) but the perpetual blinking of the Tor button urging for update is unbearable and cannot be disabled. It can be removed from the tool-bar but this way one cannot acquire new identities.

http://www.fileshredder.org/ is a better program, although it isn't "portable" (must be installed). I've been using it for years.

hamasaki on 2013-09-15 09:07

I agree, for me CyberShredder is a better option.

Beeber on 2015-06-05 18:43

I use shredder.exe. It is less than 150kb and fast. As I work, I can move files to be deleted into a 'new folder', planted anywhere. When I am done, shredder.exe takes the 'new folder', and seconds later, it is gone. Loading individual files works fine, too.
