DriveSort v1.242 Updated

billon on 16 Sep 2018
  • 198KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 15 Sep 2018
  • Suggested by MarkB / tls

DriveSort directly reads directory tables of FAT12/FAT16/FAT32 formatted volumes, allowing users to view file listings in the order they were written.

Recent operating systems re-sort file lists before display, either by name, by size, or by whatever the user chooses. However, the firmware of playing devices -- like small MP3 players, for example -- sometimes behaves differently, mostly because they lack necessary resources (CPU, memory), a problem developers usually solve by dis/playing files in the order they are written on the storage medium -- normally, the order they were added.

Additionally, DriveSort is able to change that ordering, making itself useful for re-arranging movies, series episodes, audio or picture files on FATx formatted media; afterwards, players will be able to reproduce files in the expected sequence.

@Midas could you kindly add "sort pictures for vacation slide shows on tv"

@Anerty sent email for suggestion on google search terms for search engine optimization.

as the author has said
"...this tool requires admin rights since it interacts with the sorted disk partition"
if you get an "access denied" error
then it means that another program is accessing your usb
you could probably use unlocker to determine what other program is accessing your usb

best practice:
i would NOT use this on my 500gb external HD
unless i'm darned sure i can restore it's contents
i only use this on my 32 gb usb's (containing copies of my video files)
while my original files stay safe on my 500gb external HD

Seems like soft from Mitec is now stealth?

Snap2HTML v2.0 Updated

billon on 7 Nov 2018
  • 398KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 22 Apr 2017
  • Suggested by mmx64

Snap2HTML takes a "snapshot" of folder structures on your harddrive and saves to an HTML file. The output is a modern, application-like view that feels like a real application, similar to Explorer. The program uses a treeview with folders that you can click to view the contained files. Includes a built-in file search with wildcards and breadcrumb-style path all within a single, easily distributed file.

Directory data can also be saved as text, CSV (spreadsheet), or JSON.

Category:
System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Dependencies: Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0
Unicode support: Yes
License: GNU GPLv3
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch Snap2HTML.exe.
Similar/alternative apps: LS - File List Generator, Directory Lister, MiTeC DirList
What's new?
  • Added export functionality to get data "out" of the HTML.
  • Export data as plain text, CSV or JSON.
  • Added support for searching with wildcards.
  • Search can be limited to current folder and/or subfolders.
  • Breadcrumb path is now clickable.
  • Current path is tracked in URL. Copy URL to link directly to that folder.
  • Opens previous folder when going back after opening a linked file.
  • Data format was tweaked to give slightly smaller output.
  • Fixed some bugs concerning filenames with odd characters.
  • Many other tweaks and fixes to improve the HTML template.

Excellent program. A nice interface, an easy to navigate format, and a search program all inside a single HTML. Nice.

zorro on 2018-11-07 15:19

Great output, a little fancier than DirHTML, but not stealth. Creates folder \AppData\Local\RL_Vision with cryptic subfolder with "user.config" file in it. No impact when deleting the folder, but it gets created again.
Machine: Win 8.1 x64 with no additional .NET installation

Midas on 2018-11-09 09:00

In my experience, DotNET programs are never fully stealth unless they actively clean-up after themselves. The framework is tightly integrated with Windows and built in such a way that is bound to leak traces of program execution to various system locations...

  • 9MB (uncompressed)

Each folder of this virtual file system can contain files from many disks so you can arrange your data in a simple and logical way. VVV also stores metadata information from MP3 files: author, title, album and so on.

Export to spreadsheet (CSV format) available.

VVV Portable is a PortableApps version of the original program.

@graydusts
WOW I was not aware of it.....thanks

JohnTHaller on 2013-11-24 21:00

@Wolfghost - All our apps have an INI that lets you disable the splash. You can disable them all in the PortableApps.com Platform in the Options window as well. Unless the splash is built into the app itself, of course, like GIMP et al, in which case you need to follow the directions for disabling the splash in the base app.

Ok thanks guys
