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.

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

@IanFromBarrie

Thanks for that info. I was wondering why it wasn't working with XP. Renaming todolist.exe.xp.manifest to todolist.exe.manifest worked.

Snap2HTML v2.0 Updated

webfork on 24 Apr 2017
  • 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.

  • 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.

@shnbwmn: just curious if you ever tried DirHTML?
(http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=308)

shnbwmn on 2016-04-07 14:01

No I hadn't; thank Midas. Tried it out and while it has lots of options, I still prefer Snap2HTML because of the nesting in the tree view, better visual clarity and speed of viewing. We're talking about 400k files/folders that are displayed in a single HTML, which Snap creates and displays quickly. The .htmls that DirHTML creates for much smaller directories are far larger than that of Snap's for my entire external drive.

For comparison, I created a test snapshot of my \Portable directory, where all my portable apps live, and DirHTML's output was 47Mb, nearly crashing Firefox and completely unviewable, whereas Snap's output for my entire external is around 32Mb, opens in seconds and easily navigated as if in a normal Explorer window.

I'll definitely be keeping your suggestion though, because it's useful for other types of directory snapshotting :)

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

Great little utility. I regularly have a lot of zip files I need to move to different locations. This is a real timesaver.
