webfork yes I did thank some time before I posted this, its not something I do often but this App really helped me and made it very easy to do what I was trying to do.

filobus on 2015-05-28 07:38

@bzl333 weel, you have to bear criticism if you want to improve! (unkind criticism is another matter)
Calibre is "huge" (maybe it have to be like that, it's not a criticism, it's just a pity!), and I too don't like at all its way to make its own library (I have to put there only books I want to convert, and remove them, not a user friendly behaviour). It's a little too complicated, but it does its job well!
For me it's a must-have but also a could-be-better!! :-)

Great piece of software. Tried fixing an archive in WinRAR but it failed. Tried this and it was able to rebuild the Zip file. Thanks for the post!

webfork on 2013-09-01 18:39

You only need this program when something goes wrong and I got a chance to test it when an archived ZIP file went bad. The program worked great and did exactly what I needed. The program extracts the files from the archive that it can, then re-zipps them out to a new one (that isn't broken). Since I then extracted said archive, part of me wishes there was an option to just extract the good files and folders.

Free Download Manager (FDM) is a feature-rich tool for handling and accelerating downloads. Includes a site explorer, offline website downloader, scheduler, video downloader (YouTube, Google Video etc.), BitTorrent support and more. An included media file preview prevents downloading mislabeled music or video while a ZIP file preview tool saves download time and bandwidth by selectively removing unneeded parts. A hash check capability can verify downloads and the program can be controlled remotely over the Internet (fdmwi.exe).

Especially useful to overcome unreliable/slow connections that require frequent download restarts, when bandwidth is at a premium, or for very large files.

Alternatively, Free Download Manager Portable is available, as well as a "lite" version, which has not been tested for portability.

This is a great tool.

Sure, Outlook can sort or search for e-mails by attachment, but I don't think it can do this across multiple mailboxes.

At work I have my own mailbox but need to access several shared inboxes. When contacts assure me they sent something, a default search in OutlookAttachView looks through every mailbox I have access to, and blindingly fast to boot.

masterjedi on 2014-02-25 04:04

If you have had an end user get mailbox is full notices and they have done EVERYTHING.. This is a great tool to show them that all items are can have attachments. Even their calendar items. Meeting invites are often sent with attachments such a agendas in word format, Power Point presentations and even the occasional picture file. This application scans them and finds them ALL. It has saved my first call resolutions stats.

Technomancer: if you mean the entry is unclear, please let us know in forums. If you mean the program itself (and for the RAR distro issue) you might want to contact the developer directly.

ihateyou on 2013-12-15 18:36

what you should know:
Cleanup is optional - it is very close related to an incremental backup.
Using this you have to select the same Target Directory as before to backup only changed files and to delete files on the backup that have been deleted on the original file system as well (the latter one is the actual Cleanup).

Hope it helps ;)

romulous on 2015-01-11 06:52

It's a crying shame that you can only backup folders with this tool, and not individual files within those folders (yes, I know you can set filters, but unless you know in advance what files you want from each folder, this is not practical to use).

Although there are a variety of other ways to add a password to Office and ZIP files, there is no PDF encryption component (either read or write) in the free versions of PDF-XChange, Foxit, and Adobe Acrobat. As a result, this is a very nice addition for PDF users.

PortableApps.com AppCompactor v3.4.0

billon on 7 Feb 2017
  • 787KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 6 Feb 2017
  • Suggested by Checker

PortableApps.com AppCompactor allows you to compress whole directories including applications, file libraries, and zip files. The program is a powerful compression tool that unites 7-zip and UPX inside a user-friendly wizard. For applications, this saves disk space and increases performance when running from a slow media (like flash drives). For archives, this will recompress DLL, EXE, ZIP, JAR, IRC, PYD and BIN files to their maximum compression settings, as well as an option to decompress an app's binary files that were previously compressed with UPX.

All files are tested using UPX's test feature after compressing. Files smaller than 4K are automatically skipped as compressing will not save space on the drive. The standard Microsoft Visual C runtimes are skipped to prevent antivirus false-positives. Advanced configuration can be done with apps in PortableApps.com Format.

Note: As UPX will alter the EXEs and DLLs (reversible using the Decompress option in the AppCompactor) and some apps may have issues with Zip or Jar files compressed further, users should backup software and test it after processing.

@Special:
What? What are you talking about? What broken, what reported, what plain .txt file? Can you elaborate?

Special on 2017-01-24 02:20

Normally you would need to know the password to access a passworded 7z archive or to even look inside one, but by using the 7z file manager you can still add stuff into a passworded archive by just dragging & dropping stuff onto it, for example a blank .txt file, that is the first part, then with the use of a simple Hex editor (HxD) you can break the password "lock" if you know what to look for. What I'm saying is, use 7-Zip for your compression needs, but for encrypting sensitive stuff you plan on uploading onto the web, look elsewhere.

demon.devin on 2017-09-14 12:17

Here's my 7-Zip Portable made with my modified version of the PA.c Launcher:

I even added support for file type associations to where you may specify which formats you'd like associated with 7-Zip during runtime. Plus I've added a SendTo shortcut which is available for any file types that aren't associated but are supported for use with 7-Zip.

And yes ..it's still very much portable! Read the ReadMe file on the GitHub project page on how to add associations or how to set the shell extension/context menu features...

I tried this a week or so ago and wasn't really impressed.
It might be great software but it's just not for me.

One thing I just this second noticed though was a 5MB profile folder in my application data folder under the name Greyfirst.

Maybe I used the wrong settings but it should also be pointed out I think

Tashi on 2008-01-04 19:04

I've used this software for quite a while. It is specifically for writing screenplays. So if you want to write a script for your short film or a screenplay contest, this software rocks. It is feature rich. Otherwise if you are looking for something browser related, or a word processor, best to look elsewhere.

Why all the fuss over RAR? The biggest problem is getting RAR to ZIP so it's compatible to more people in the world, not less. 1980 called, they want their compressor back.

Midas on 2014-05-25 19:18

The changelog posted is for ArcConvert v0.66, plus there now seems to be a 64 bits version linked at the bottom of the Sourceforge page ("Update for 64bit OS").

Note also that although WinRAR gives you a 30 day trial, as the meme goes, it will never end...

DavidRoper: even among very technical people, I can't seem to get anyone to use anything but ZIP. The dream of getting people to use one of a number of radically better compression formats has been going on for over a decade now and at this stage just seems like a lost cause.

I do not disagree, I still use Excel 2003, and it took some work to get it to work correctly on Windows 10 - 64 bit. If program is all you need and works, great. SE-Explorer zip contains SE-MediaPlayer, does not work. Context menu limited to SE-Explorer list, unlike FreeCommanderXE, etc. which include context items added to Windows menu.

DownTester v1.30

Checker on 21 Mar 2014

DownTester tests your Internet download speed by connecting and downloading from multiple locations. It will sequentially test the download speed of URLs that you choose, going to the next after specified number of seconds has been elapsed or after it downloads the specified amount of KB according to your preferences.

DownTester can also do a more limited test the download speed of your local network (for example: \\MyComp\myfile.zip). Because the program uses the number of bytes read from the file, instead of counting the number of bytes transferred over the network, this may not be an accurate speed test. A slow connection may be caused by computers on your network and not your network hardware.

I have been using this program for years. I have tried every way possible to contact the authour in order to have some improvements made, but can't ever seem to get ahold of him. None of the comments I make on the page ever get moderated and posted.

It has an issue where if you create a new folder and then immediately attempt to delete it, you will get an application exception, even the app won't crash completely. After that exception, nothing you do will get saved, so the best thing to do at that point is to exit the program completely and re-open it. I used reshacker on it and was able to achieve wordwrap in the comments pane, and to remove the functionality where the cursor gets put anywhere you click instead of going to last place available in the line of text. If anyone wants my hacked version, I can provide it. Like I said, I've tried everything to get ahold of the authour, but all to no avail. However, despite all this, I haven't found a better "code bank" than this one, and I've tried them all.

Fixed. Here's what happened... I opened CodeBank2's config file with Notepad while testing the program for portability. But I totally forgot about that when I was looking for registry changes. To cut the story short, .xdb2 came up in the search results and I was quick to list it as "not stealth", neglecting the fact that Notepad was the culprit. Thanks, redfaced baas.

You can have a somewhat complicated folder structure you built for a project and want to use it in a new one

Vixay on 2010-03-23 05:33

I was the one that gave the idea to SKWIRE for this program. What I needed it for was to replicate the file structure of the target system (production) on my developer machine so I could test out my scripts on file naming and manipulation. The advantage was I didn't have to copy the entire 50GB but only one zip file to recreate the structure :)

MCBastos on 2011-10-22 00:44

Another possible situation is when you are going to copy a LOT of files from one disk to another. By first creating the empty files, you end up with all the directories together and defragged, instead of fragmented all over the disk. Then, when you overwrite the empty files with the real files, the directories stay defragmented.
That's why Microsoft's Robocopy utility has the /CREATE switch, by the way. It does exactly what this utility does, and is already installed in every Windows since XP.

@ misan: If you klick on the little "?"-icon behind "Stealth" ...

What makes an application "stealth"?

For the purpose for this website, "stealth" means when an application is launched, used and terminated properly, it does not leave behind any entries in the registry or filesystem. Certain exceptions are permitted. For example, registry entries that are created/updated by Windows for the application (eg. MRU entries for dialog boxes, DirectX entries for DirectX-based apps), or temp files created in the official "Temp" folders are not taken into consideration. Note: "Stealth" does not mean non-traceability! In fact, it is quite unlikely you can hide your activities on a Windows machine from a capable system administrator.

FileVerifier++ v0.6.3.5830

billon on 14 Jul 2016
  • 2MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 22 May 2010
  • Suggested by I am Baas

FileVerifier++ checks and compares files to see if they have been modified. Supports drag-and-drop, recursive directory processing, patterns, color coding, export to a variety of hashing formats (.sfv, .md5, .csv, etc.) and more. Can use any of 21 different hashing algorithms such as CRC16 for speed and SHA-512 for security (uses the standard MD5 by default).

The program (ZIP version) will automatically ask to create verification files with relative pathways, which is much more portable.

Win2K users should use an earlier version. A beta 64-bit version is available.

  • A workaround for a condition causing a brief delay in the program exit on certain systems.
Fixed:
  • A situation where the program would crash upon recalculating or verifying a list where a significant number of files are skipped initially.
  • A situation where the program will crash upon writing lists with entries with dates prior to 1/1/1970. Any dates prior to this will be set to 1/1/1970. This restriction will be lifted in future versions.

A little intimidating at first, but so far looks like the best file verification tool I've tried yet. Fast, recursive directory verify, open source, relative pathways, and multiple different verification methods? Dream come true for making sure your data hasn't changed or corrupted. Recommend MD5 for general file verification and SHA 256 for security verifications.

FV++ Author on 2011-04-28 21:10

There is a version of FV++ that works with Windows 2000. The version is v0.6.4.6010 (it is under fileverifier-testing). While several of the icons do not render properly under Win2K, it is functional.

Also, there is no functional difference between the installed version and the ZIP version, at least in terms of the program itself. The executables are identical. What makes a FV++ installation portable is the presence of the fv.cfg file in the installation directory. There are no differences besides this and the lack of an installer.

Jpg+FileBinder v1.0

smaragdus on 13 Jun 2017
  • 383KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 29 May 2010
  • Suggested by anonimice

Jpg+FileBinder is able to hide files in a picture file by merging one of three compressed file types (.zip, .rar, .7z) with an ordinary JPEG image file. This basic steganography makes the compressed file look like any other JPEG image file to the operating system and any image viewer. Meanwhile, if users try to open the file using WinRAR or 7-Zip, the compressed files will appear.

This may be used as a camouflage for information or to help transfer non-image format files through image hosting-only services. Note that this program does not include encryption by default and only joins image files and archive files. To enable security, use password-protection provided by your compression program.

Universal Extractor v1.6.1

webfork on 8 Jul 2016
  • 11MB (uncompressed)

  • Suggested by DigeratiPrime

Universal Extractor allows you to extract files from a wide variety of archive files, including ZIP, ARJ, LZH, as well as MSI and EXE files created using various installer packages (such as Nullsoft, Wise, Inno Setup, etc). Useful for testing apps for portability because you can extract files directly from installer packages without having to go through the installation process. Note that the original developer no longer updates the program so some manual updates may be required.

Alternatively, an unofficial version with the latest-and-greatest internals is available (on Lupo's PenSuite site).

Commercial use note: license restrictions are present on included files UHARC02.EXE and UHARC04.EXE, but can be deleted without dramatic impact on the software. See website for more information.

FreeOTFE v5.21

Checker on 15 Mar 2014
  • 8MB (uncompressed)
  • Suggested by Rails

FreeOTFE, named for "on-the-fly disk encryption" creates one or more encrypted virtual disks using numerous available encryption algorithms (e.g. AES, Twofish, Serpent, and many more), and can be used to encrypt entire partitions. A separate application that doesn't require administrative rights called FreeOTFE Explorer is also available from the same site, using an Explorer-like interface (see version comparison).

64-bit users: FreeOTFE Explorer is functional, but Windows 7 64-bit users cannot use FreeOTFE as the drivers are unsigned.

Note: On startup, you will receive a message asking you to use portable mode drivers to start the virtual disk drivers (you need administrator rights to do this, otherwise the menu item will be grayed out). When you shutdown the program, you will also be given the option to stop the virtual disk drivers.

you can achieve greater flexibility by using a batch file to launch your defrag sessions... you could customize individual files for each drive or use multiple configurations for one drive
-here is a short 'script' i use for my removable hard drive with portable apps:

JkDefrag64-3.36 h: -a 3 -f 0 -d 3 -l "h.log" -q

this defragments and optimizes as well as filling in all free space; however, mydefrag is better for a system drive

tried it on my portable hd (2tb)
it is ok, but the optimization is lacking; it does some, but not alot
in order to put the portable software first, i put everything else in an 'x' folder and ran the defrag sorting by file/folder...
...then, when the portable apps are in the first position i switched to fill.. but jkdefrag doesnt fill smartly at all, so i switched to mydefrag
... using monthly data defrag and then switching to consolidate i achieved better results... you can do a defrag only alternating with consolidate to get better results
... finally, for a portable hard drive, i recommend defrag only option, as a regular maintenance... in fact, use it as the screen saver, on defrag only, all drives

I am pretty ticked off at this program. I installed it, and did not like it at all. Tried to UNinstall it, and very tough. It's not on the Windows menu, no where in the XP add / remove control panel. I am using Norton, which will hopefully uninstall all of it from the registry.

Until there is an easy way to uninstall this program, absolutely beware.

Uh, Jon? *None* of the programs listed on this site can be uninstalled; you just delete them when you don't want them any more.

uh, Pikadude, FreeCommander can be uninstalled. Shows up in the control panel and has an uninstall routine. Beware of Alt Commander. Do not trust a program that does not offer uninstall or document what was done in the installation process.

FileCommander v5.0.9

webfork on 26 Jul 2015

FileCommander is a feature-rich, multi-pane file manager that supports up to 4 simultaneous browser windows (enabled with "View", "Extended view"). File highlighting to separate different file types and comes with 3 different "themes," or skins. Includes a process list, folder comparison/synchronization tool, MD5 hash, file splitter, network monitor, virtual drives, file sharing, CD burner etc. ZIP, 7zip and RAR files are handled as folders and file preview tool (F3) allows a quick-view for a long list of file types. Additionally, the program includes an "open with" capability that supports relative pathways, allowing FileCommander to open files using other portable software.

Performance enhancements over regular Explorer include individual threads for each window so the rest of the program doesn't slow down during one window's process (e.g. CD spin-up, network delay). Internal clipboard means Windows' own clipboard will not be overwritten.

Update: after extensive use, although program had a lot of promise but its unfortunately really buggy. Drag and drop outside of the window doesn't work, wouldn't refresh a new cd that was inserted, and many, many minor glitches. Pass on this one.

A good fast cataloger which creates a single file from each disk (.cf4) whose size ranges from 1K to 200k for lots of files. Its very fast and small. The find feature needs more work as it only locates the first find.

Worth the download - despite its age, still the program to beat.

The referred site does not mention anything about its portability. Makes me wary of unexpected surprises if put on a thumb drive. Any assurance (please!)
