Have a look at the license agreement page, which is displayed when the tool is run.

Cool program!

By the same author(s), YUMI has the additional advantage of enabling multiple 'Live' distros to coexist on a portable USB drive: http://www.pendrivelinux.com/yumi-multiboot-usb-creator/

Not true, it can scan directories. The option is right there on the startup menu.

@Gmacri

Select the 'Path' to scan if you don't want a whole drive.

mrpink on 2012-01-29 21:08

I think i'll keep this one. WinDirStat is prettier but Spacesniffer is way faster and natively portable

POP Peeper v4.0.1 Updated

Midas on 26 Apr 2015
  • 5MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 10 Dec 2014
  • Suggested by falrob

POP Peeper is an email notifier that alerts you when you have new email on any of your POP3, Hotmail, MSN, Yahoo, Mail.com, MyWay, Excite, Lycos.com, or RediffMail accounts. You can also send emails using your SMTP server or through your webmail account directly from POP Peeper.

To enable secure connections, see forum instructions.

Category:
System Requirements: Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Delete Pro and Themes folders, PPconvert.exe and PpHelper.exe. Launch POPPeeper.exe.
What's new? - Pro (AntiJunk): New option to ignore/skip AntiJunk for certain accounts (access under Account/Advanced); this is particularly useful if you're accessing spam folders and/or using the "hide from *all accounts*" option
- Pro (AntiJunk): "Delete Junk" action has been enhanced: you can now assign an additional action (e.g. minimize PP) and has a "don't prompt again" setting
- Pro (AntiJunk): When multiple filters (e.g. Rule) apply a different user flag, the one with the higest precedence will be used; previously, it would always use the first user flag applied which prevented a Rule to apply a user flag if the sender was in your white list (friend user flag). "Precedence" is calculated by the display order.
- Error log window now supports clickable links (error messages from server may contain links)
- If the new version prompt appears and you select "don't ask again" it only applies to that version; if another new version is subsequently released, you will receive the update notification
- Fix: Potential crash involving IMAP/IDLE and servers that don't provide a reliable connection
- Fix: SendMail: Certain locales couldn't parse standard timestamp and would prevent sending messages due to mis-calculated age
- Fix: Pro activation window may not appear when required
- Fix: Issues with VersionCheck preventing updates (including WebMail) from working correctly
- Fix: Log window will save to file immediately if enable "save changes" (instead of memory only)
- Fix: Issues with High-contrast themes

As a blind person using speech I needed a new email client. I gave this a try and I am quite impressed. I found it easy to set up and it works well with my screen reading software.

This software is not stealth, it creates CrystalDiskMark30.ini in the user's folder.

portafreeuser on 2010-12-27 04:09

it's a nice idea but i've heard people say that benchmarks like this are worthless because disk caching. unless the temp files are bigger than the caches, the results are bogus.

WIkiQUsK on 2012-11-25 14:57

Just tested it and it seems to be writing the settings file to the app folder correctly at this point. I think you can change this to stealth now.
