Text 2 Folders v1.1.6 Updated

Text 2 Folders creates folders based on list written in a text file. This contrasts the normal method for creating multiple folders, which is clicking "New Folder" repeatedly and then renaming the individual folders. Just create text document in Windows Notepad or other text program and save it, then run the program to generate folders. Separate folder names by putting them on a separate lines in the text file. For example a text file with the following text:

Documents
Pictures
Music
Video

... will create the directories Documents, Pictures, Music, and Video.

Occasionally, i use a procedure that ends up time consuming anyway:
1. search for desired file search app (usually, regex in filelocator lite).
2. select filenames in results.
3. "export" those filenames to clipboard.
4. paste into batch file, with appropriate text find&replace

and manual edits to create batch commands.
5. run batch

@granny Are you sure FreeCommander can do this? I know it can create nested folders separated with a slash, but how can it create peer folders? FreeCommander XE supports | to separate folders like TotalCommander, but plain FreeCommander doesn't.

BlueScreenView v1.55 Updated

Checker on 29 Jan 2015
  • 95KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 29 Jan 2015
  • Suggested by guinness

BlueScreenView scans all your minidump files created during 'blue screen of death' crashes, and displays the information about all crashes in one table. For each crash, BlueScreenView displays the minidump filename, the date/time of the crash, the basic crash information displayed in the blue screen (Bug Check Code and 4 parameters), and the details of the driver or module that possibly caused the crash (filename, product name, file description, and file version).

This program is useful for both developers and non-programmers to determine both the cause and possible workarounds for major crashes.

Great tool, and a utility that Windows Admin Tools should have by default. Disabling automatic restart and writing down error codes is one thing, but this is so useful when helpful other users who often fail to record the correct information -- and saves them doing so when installed. Two thumbs up.

Saw this tool getting used recently by high-level tech support folks. Definitely an important tool for Windows diagnosis.

webfork on 2013-03-30 02:24

Finally had a real need for this -- helped me track down a program that was misbehaving and causing a whole-system crash. Saved a whole lot of time when dealing with support. Wonderful.

useless. to most of us, PORTABLE requires us to be able to run as NON-ADMIN. can't use this. can't install it. not truly portable. don't get me wrong, I use it all the time on my cluster at home, just can't use this at work or on common machines at school.

dany on 2011-10-27 15:15

@Cattleya: Make sure you download the zip package, because the installer does the following:
"The kernel mode driver used by CPU-Z is installed on the system, that avoids to install / remove it at every run."
The portable version leaves no driver behind, just tested it.

@kc: I used to do sysadmin for a small non-profit org. 7 pc's and 2 printers, no big deal. I carried all my tools on a pendrive. Off course I had admin-rights, but this is a typical scenario a lot of us are in, so it's not entirely useless, portable is the way to go for sysadmins ;)

CPUZ is old, tired and practically useless. It's heyday was about six years ago. Speccy is a must for today.

abc: thanks for the response -- you're right that it doesn't allow for installation of multiple distributions as some of these tools do and I've modifed the entry. However, I didn't take directly from their website because this program will also work with non-Linux ISOs.

bzl333 on 2013-07-27 00:36

up to version 5.85 now at sourceforge.

TP109 on 2014-11-26 02:56

This is ideal for installing Linux distros. Has worked flawlessly so far. Can't say the same for similar apps.
