I've updated this to 1.7 just today to fix a bug where the cursor position keeps getting reset during live-edit.

Thanks for making this BGM. I think I may have come across this in one of its earlier version. After re-testing it has now replaced Numculator as my go-to calculator due to the swiftness of its launch.

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.

Hy,

I tried zo use I.Scribe vie Imap with my Mailbox. Unfortunately the Imap functionality of I-Scribethis seems to be completely not in a good sape. The performance when synchronizing folder or moving/deleting Emails is very, very slow.
Could it be I am making anything wrong or the actual build has some bugs?

@Falaffel: I'm not an i.Scribe user so you probably want to try contacting support about that. Failing that, you might try listing something in our troubleshooting forums to see if someone has run into a similar issue.

Beware the EagleGet botnet:

EagleGet 2.0.4.60 is the last clean version without lum_sdk32.dll / Luminati SDK malware bundled. Even the portable version of the newest EagleGet 2.0.4.70 comes with a malicious .dll file which allows user computers to act as a botnet. A botnet is a number of Internet-connected devices, each of which is running one or more bots. Botnets can be used to perform distributed denial-of-service attack (DDoS attack), steal data, send spam, and allows the attacker to access the device and its connection.

Luminati SDK is a part of the Luminati Network, a company that bundles and monetize legit software with ads.

Check their forums:

@Diskatom: They have removed the Luminati DLL as of v2.0.4.80 (my download of v2.0.4.90 was clean, and the decision is now mentioned at the bottom of the forum post you linked).

Note that v2.0.4.90 is available but they have not updated the download link. Here is a working link for now http://dl.eagleget.com/latest/EagleGetProtable_2.0.4.90.zip

Hi Ganamyde,

OW has few different features than widget, so a different name.
It works in Xp which do not have widget support, and also Win8. You are welcome to read features and feedback at the website (https://sites.google.com/site/overlapwallpaper/home) for more information. I will request you to use OW along with widget to get first hand experience.

OfflineRegistryFinder v1.05 Updated

OfflineRegistryFinder allows you to scan registry files from a separate source (not your local system registry) or registry snapshot to find keys/values/data. After it displays the search result, you can easily select one or more items and then export them into a .reg file. This can then be imported into the RegEdit tool of Windows.

Note that snapshot searches may be faster than a live system, especially for repeated searches or general research. As such, creating a snapshot of your current system and using this program may work better and faster than other registry search tools.

UltraSearch v2.3.1 Updated

billon on 22 Apr 2019
  • 6MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 15 Apr 2019
  • Suggested by guinness

UltraSearch searches thousands of files almost instantly. File name searches narrow as they are typed, as well as with wildcards such as "*.exe". Additional information like file size and last change date are present, as well as access to Explorer's own context menu. You can exclude folders, files, or file-types by providing an "exclude" filter and results can be exported as text, RTF, HTML, CSV and Excel file, or printed.

The program works with NTFS-formatted drives to search without needing to first create an index. The program works directly with a feature of the file system called the Master File Table to give results on thousands of files in moments. Note that you can also search the interior of files for keywords, though this process is much slower than the file search.

Well, i found the solution myself. Don't know if this option is new or not but its the first time i noticed. So, when dragging files into another window or tab in Q-dir, at the bottom it says "Start drop in new process"! (and recycle bin and email aswell) ha! and just drop it on this button.. nothing will freez! magic :) Thanks anyway folks.
Q-dir is great.

penthe on 2016-12-30 15:28

The Q-Dir 64 installer 6.47 is not installing, last time there was also a problem with the 64 installer. They should be checking first before releasing the installer.

starshakur on 2018-05-05 15:17

Can't recommend Q-Dir to anyone, freezes while copying, Q-Dir windows turns black, crashes. Windows 10 64-Bit, tried Q-Dir 32-Bit & 64-Bit, tried the PortableApps version, all of them buggy as hell. That*s probably the reason why the developer frequently updates it. 2 years back Mithril wrote about something that's still happening.

Time to start looking for an alternative, till then i'll use Windows Explorer.

@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!! :-)

Checker: a portable version of Paint.net is available, but untested and not something I would use: http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=61988#p61988

Webfork is correct, there is a portable version. Worked fine for me on XP. I also like the knockoff of it called Pinta available for Linux. It's not full-featured yet, but it certainly works.
Off-topicP If you really want portable, put your favorite version of Linux including whatever programs you want on a USB stick and you've got an entire portable OS!

CSVfileView v2.20 released as of 23-SEP-2015

Changelog

* Version 2.20:
o Added 'Display Filter' option (F2). The display filter is
somewhat similar to the SQL WHERE clause, for example... The
following filter will instruct CSVFileView to display only lines with
'Yes' value in the Connected column and the 'Device Name' column
contains a 'USB' string:
Connected = 'Yes' AND 'Device Name' CONTAINS 'USB'
o Added 'Load Filter' option to the 'Advanced Open' window. It's
similar to the 'Display Filter' feature, but instead of filtering the
file after it's already loaded , the load filter skip items during
the loading process, so the file will be loaded faster and
CSVFileView will consume less memory.
o Added 'First line contains column names' and 'Automatically
detect the delimiter and quotes characters' options to the 'Advanced
Open' window.
o Added /aload command-line option, for loading a file according to
the 'Advanced Open' settings.
o You can now specify any variable inside the CSVFileView.cfg file
as a command-line parameter, for example... In order to turn off the
'First Line Contains Column Names' option:
CSVFileView.exe /FirstLineColumnNames 0

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. The program can schedule operations, add timestamps to the destination folder and keep multiple backups (iterations).

If in use, the program can even eject a USB device when an operation is complete.

NOTE: By default the program does not send deleted files to the Recycle Bin, but are instead deleted outright. Use caution in initial sync tests with sensitive data.

Hugh0202 on 2018-05-02 14:37

Maybe I misunderstood "synchronize"? If I have a and a , I want the destination folder/tree to mirror the source. This doesn't do that.
I thought I'd use this to maintain a second copy of my digital music collection, but when I did a bunch of tagging and renaming, and use this, the destination files were not renamed. I don't expect a utility to detect if the content has changed -- I just wanted (and want going forward) my "backup" to be exactly like the original -- with extra files and folders gone, and new ones copied. This requires a "utility" because much of the change to the source involves cleaning up filenames, so drag-n-drop produces two (or more) "copies" of the same songs in the backup.

Wrote to creator

BIG problem I tested your program today & it deleted a number of folders. They did not go to the recycle bin? Just GONE

There were 20 folders on the drive. Your program deleted all the folders that began with ## example D:\## Classical

None of the others were changed.

All I tried was copy one tiny folder to another.

Your program deleted 280 Gig's

Is there anything I can do ? Or just use UNDELETE software..

NOT impressed

his reply

If you don't select "Use Recycle Bin" the program deletes directly files.

DSynchronize is designed for Power Users, if you select some options without know their effect, can produce big damages.

#2

DSynchronize has been downloaded 66335 times on last two months. You are the only user that have reported these problems, so I think that the cause of these troubles it's an configuration error not a program error.

VERY SCARY program just deletes what it wants like another post above. So I am not the ONLY ONE

webfork on 2018-11-03 12:13

Sinchu: Emphasizing that I've used Dsyncronize for years and it's definitely my go-to sync program, I acknowledge any program that deletes files should probably send them by default to the recycle bin. I've added something to the entry.

Solved: the download on the portable freeware site does not include a file "todolist.exe.manifest" that is required to run on XP. If you have an existing earlier version of todolist, it will have a file "todolist.exe.xp.manifest". Dan the developer advises to rename that to "todolist.exe.manifest". Seems to work.

IanFromBarrie on 2017-01-27 22:54

The download contains the "todolist.exe.xp.manifest" file, and renaming that to "todolist.exe.manifest" works

I used Universal Extractor to open the installer, then copied the {app} folder to my PortableApps directory on my USB drive. I renamed it to Artweaver and created the .ini file. Seems to run just fine! I guess the {embedded} directory contains license files and so forth; not necessary to run the program. Very nice!

@foxcole: click the link in 'how to extract.', you need to replace bin/innounp.exe with the latest version, yours only supports versions up to 5.1.1. Innounp version 0.36 supports unpacking version 5.4.2 Inno Setup installers.
Worked for me.
