Thanks Guido76. It's still labelled as 8.0.5 but it's a new version and working here too

Emka on 2017-03-04 13:44

It doesn't display some German special characters correctly (e.g. ß), and more importantly, it shows a "buy the pro version" nagscreen upon exit and opens the product homepage in the system's standard browser.

Guido76 on 2017-03-04 14:30

Emka, you're right. Some problems with the French language too. And a very annoying nag-screen, and automatic launch of the browser. Too bad!
I will try to see this with the author, but I suppose that is part of his strategy to force the sale of the Pro version, so there is only little chance to make him change his mind!

NetworkTrafficView v2.06

Eyes open wide as can be, can't seem to spot the new "IPNetInfo - Source IP" option displayed anywhere...;-(

Anyone else with a better eyesight cares double-checking ?

__philippe on 2017-04-26 21:41

Eyes open wide, but looking the wrong direction...:-(

The new option is indeed present and working as it should, available NOT under the likely "Option" tab,
but rather from two alternate locations :

• under the "File" tab
• in the context menu

Apologies for this unwarranted agitation.

@__philippe no thank you cause I couldn't find either lol, but I was able after you pointed me in the right direction :)

It supports Unix-style include/exclude wildcards filters.

Alternatively, PortableApps.com's FastCopy Portable is stealth.

I've was able to copy about 10 GB of files from an aging and extremely noisy and slow hard drive via a USB adapter -- Would have gotten a head ache had I copied from windows explorer, or tried to. PS. 0/42 flagged by virus total, it's clean. PSS. Development seems to have slowed down but there's a beta floating that adds some features / fixes some issues...some other tools are better than TC like gsrichcopy 360/fast copy/robocopy

JudyGarland on 2018-04-08 07:06

It's fast and solid, but it doesn't check file content. It compares files size and date but NOT the actual content.
For example, it happens that you have a file with same age and size but different/updated content (some applications are able to generate such containers, with constant dimension and untouched last modified date).
This way, I lost my data. After several years, I file like described upon suffered a sort of corruption. Not a big problem, I thought, and I overwritten it with the backupped copy. I discovered later it wasnt never updated, the file was just like I copied at first time, original state lets say. Also, since the file was overwritten there was no way to recover even the faulty one.
OK, my fault. The author specifies the rules correctly, size and date. But not everybody is aware about that. So, if you have such files, be carefull and use another app, like winmerge or similar.
Furthermore, FC is able to verify the backupped files hash, but it doesnt verify in any way the actual files in source/destination folder or partition.

The newly introduced installer writes to the registry when choosing "extract only" (key: HKCU\Software\HSTools)

Why do the dependencies include the administrator rights?
SyMenu can work with normal rights too. It can even work from read only supports or network paths.

AndTheWolf - It's fixed. Some editors keep pointing to static URLs instead of the download page for some reason. So, when it's updated, the download winds up wrong.

__philippe on 2018-03-31 15:31

Belatedly noticed FocusWriter's hefty 138MB footprint,
a tad rich for an alleged "minimalistic" word processor...;-)

webfork on 2018-04-11 22:29

philippe: true. I'll add a note that the minimalism refers to the interface.

I'm not keeping this. It looks like a capable enough app, but the skins are offensive. Downloaded, extracted, 45 seconds later it's gone. (And don't even begin to tell me "just delete the skins", because there are three embedded skins are are worse than the external ones)
