For a different perspective about weather-related applications,
take a peek at the Norwegian Met office free-access portal: http://yowindow.com

@FileHandler As the disclaimer on the entry notes, you're not the first person to have problems with this. If we keep getting issues like this, I'll recommend we take it offline. I don't want to recommend something that doesn't work right.

I had similar issues, so never used it again. I had to reinstall a backup to fix most things.

Midas on 2018-02-03 22:01

As with all registry cleaning utilities, user discretion is utterly advisable. I use it on occasion and have never had such issues. Until proven that the issues reported are particular to Privazer, I would like for it not to be taken offline.

A keeper. Very lightweight with many useful features.

webfork on 2016-05-03 21:30

Although it's an image uploader with a lot of capability, I was actually most impressed by the included screen capture system. The super easy annotation and batch uploads may completely change how I do screen captures.

What a bad news! Where did you get these rumours from? I hope the rumours are not true.

DSynchronize lets you copy, move, or synchronize folders on your computer or over a network. The program can sync in both directions, making both folders up-to-date with the latest data, do realtime sync where any changes copied to destination and even verify it's transfers.

@ahmedemad: you might try Recuva, for example (http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=1139)...

smaragdus on 2015-05-21 02:18

Latest version of DSynchronize (2.30.9) fails to run on my system (Windows 8.1 x64)- it opens and exits almost immediately. This never happened with any version prior to 2.30.9. I contacted the developer but haven't got any response so far. If he had responded I would have provided him with the dump files.

webfork on 2015-05-23 01:58

Thanks for trying. Dsyncronize has been a reliable program and the developer has been fairly active over the years. I hope he gets back to you.
