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.

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

According to the website, it also works on Win 7 and 8. I'm hesitant to use it on Win 10 since it says "TreeCopy will only work successfully on these specific Windows operating systems:", and then doesn't list Win 10.

To Gawran: those non-techs such as myself would rather use a larger, "clumsy" program with a GUI than fiddle with commands.

@ 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

Vixay on 2010-03-23 05:33

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

webfork on 29 Sep 2016
  • 4MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 19 Mar 2008
  • Suggested by joby_toss

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.

The first thing that comes to my mind is that one of its main (and malicious) uses will be to upload and distribute fake files (for instance on binary newsgroups, file hosting sites, or via P2P), so users get tricked into downloading huge amounts of useless data while they keep thinking they are downloading some movie or software.

Apart from this malicious use, the program might perhaps be useful for tests, like testing the throughput and speed of a specific amount of data on a connection (e.g of an external hard-drive or a network connection, etc.).

This works well for creating a pad file to be used with dsmask (part of dsfok). dsfok is available from http://members.ozemail.com.au/~nulifetv/freezip/freeware
These 2 programs allow for truly unbreakable encryption.

I use this kind of file generators to block unneeded disk space (120 GB at my internet laptop). I leave only 3-4 GB available. this way when I shred the unused disk space once in a while (for making unwanted undeletes of sensible data impossible) the process is much faster.
