TeraCopy v3.0.8 Updated

ashghost on 17 Mar 2017
  • 13MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 16 Mar 2017
  • Suggested by AntBond

TeraCopy lets you copy or move files at the maximum possible speed. It uses dynamically adjusted buffers to reduce seek times, as well as asynchronous copy to speed up file transfers between two physical hard drives. When an error is encountered during copying/moving, TeraCopy will automatically retry and skip the files that cannot be transferred instead of aborting the entire operation. It also shows failed file transfers and lets you recopy only problem files.

Once the destination directory is selected, files can be dragged-and-dropped onto the window, even while a transfer is in progress. Once files are transferred, the Verify option uses a CRC check to see if files are identical.

I feel as though the size of this application is incorrect. Even after deleting all unnecessary items the size of my TeraCopy is still 3.35MB. Is there something that I am missing?

@ BottleOfWater: Thanks ... and corrected ;)

Under Windows 7 (and probably Vista), you may need to run this program as Administrator for it to work.
'SmartSniff' (also from Nirsoft) already has a manifest that will ask for Elevated Privileges.. not sure why this one was missed?

WebBrowserPassView v1.85 Updated

billon on 14 Feb 2017
  • 390KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 14 Feb 2017
  • Suggested by guinness

WebBrowserPassView is a password recovery tool that reveals the passwords stored by Internet Explorer (4.0 - 11.0), Mozilla Firefox, Opera, SeaMonkey, Chromium, Google Chrome, Safari, Vivaldi and Yandex Web browser. This tool can be used to recover your lost/forgotten password of any website, including popular Web sites, like Facebook, Yahoo, Google, and GMail, as long as the password is stored by your Web Browser.

Currently, WebBrowserPassView cannot retrieve the passwords if they are encrypted with a master password.

To work with Chrome and Opera portable versions, go to 'options' and set the location of the portable browser folder. Select the user data folder in Chrome, and wand.dat for Opera. (Thanks to user "deer".)

Portable browser e.g. Firefox's passwords can be viewed by manually setting Options->Advanced Options:
For example,
Firefox Profile=D:\Firefox\Data\profile
Firefox Installation=D:\Firefox\App\Firefox

Advanced Renamer is stealth but the exiftool.exe within is not, it leaves behind a 19MB folder: AppData\Local\Temp\par-username\cache-exiftool-10.04.

Even if terminated properly, the folder stays.

MIKLO on 2017-03-02 17:59

@ joby_toss thanks for a great link that makes clear many useful things about portable installs :) Advanced Renamer is still my fav app for name changing one or many files,so user friendly.

Oops. Went to the autoit portable link, where Avast blocked the download of autoit creator.exe, claimed it was infected with Win32-Evo-gen ...

Ganamyde on 2013-12-24 08:40

Twisted language, go for AutoHotkey instead.

guinness on 2013-12-24 10:13

@IanFromBarrie, strange as Avast is being over protective. AutoIt Creator is designed by me and is not affiliated with AutoIt.

@Ganamyde, in the future please give a reason as to why that is, otherwise your comment has no merit.
