Re: Text Editor Performance Tests

Just had to return to this because I had to load a large text file (1.4 GB) and HiEditor did a great job! Thanks for confirming that HiEditor can handle that size file. 1.4 GB is nearly double the largest file tested. I had to place a limit on file size for several reasons, including the extra time...

Re: MadEdit

Most of the tested editors that boast about handling large text files didn't live up to their claims. Most freeware editors able to handle large files didn't showcase that capability and just included it on their feature list. Large file processing looks good on a feature list, and since most users ...

In HexMode, MadEdit can open large files which size is up to 32GB (INT_MAX*16).
A lot of them make that claim. There are only a few freeware editors that can effectively load large files.

Re: Solving file conflicts with WinMerge

The modified command will work even if the batch file and 2 files to be compared exist in separate directories.

Re: VBackup - Command Line Backup with File Versioning

I looked into this and what this program does is to create a full copy of the previous file version in each directory. In each target directory where a file was changed, it creates a ".VBackups" directory. Within the multiple ".VBackups" directories are separate sub-directories for each file that wa...

Re: Solving file conflicts with WinMerge

If the files are always in the same directory: One way to speed this up is to create a text file in that folder with the text below "F:\PortableApps\WinMergePortable\WinMergePortable.exe" . . Another way is to modify the above command to compare any 2 files from the same directory by dragging and d...

Re: Vizitka (simple business card utility)

v20.06 allows the user to add a picture to the business card. Not sure of any other changes to the program from the previous version. I briefly tested the program and it appears to work well (it also works on XP). The included PDF help file describes its features and provides detailed instructions f...

Re: VBackup - Command Line Backup with File Versioning

I'm a little unclear on the page -- does it generate one file with all the versions packaged into it? In other words, can you restore a version without Vbackup? Probably unlikely, but I've only briefly tested it so far. I don't have access to my regular machine at the moment that contains some Vbac...

Mirror - CLI tool to mirror two directories

Mirror copies a directory to another location. If the destination directory already exists, Mirror only copies the files that have been added, modified, or deleted compared to the source directory. Mirror is especially adapted to frequent backups. Compared to a classical directory copy, it saves tim...

VBackup - Command Line Backup with File Versioning

VBackup is a command line program for Windows that is used to make backup copies of directories. It is similar in functionality to XCOPY and ROBOCOPY, however, VBackup implements file versioning. This means that you can not only restore files from the latest backup, but you can also restore them fro...

Re: Siren (advanced filesystem renamer)

I found that the filter box on Siren's GUI doesn't work, at least 99.9% of the time, it's very buggy - at least on my system. However, filtering does work from the command line. Even the example filters provided by the developer won't filter the file list in the GUI. I tested the /I and /p switches ...
