WinSCP 5.5.5 (5.5.5 Build 4605) has been just released.

webfork on 2017-10-12 21:03

I've been a huge FileZilla fan since it came out back in 2001, but got a chance to test it today and WinSCP is amazing. I was able to resolve an issue with WebDAV via that program that no other program seemed capable of.

Everything v1.4.1.1005 Updated

billon on 25 Jan 2021
  • 2MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 25 Jan 2021
  • Suggested by Drutt

Everything is a powerful search tool that locates files and folders by file name instantly, and includes an FTP and Web server interface. It also can search files by their contents. Unlike Windows search, Everything initially displays all files and folders on your computer. You simply type in part of the desired file name to limit what files and folders are displayed instantly. The more you type, the more specific the list becomes.

Note that the instant-search capability only works on NTFS/ReFS-formatted drives and only uses file and folder names in a file index. The program can separately catalog non-NTFS/ReFS and network servers for searching on a schedule.

webfork: Because it's their preferred portable build. Not everyone will need the full package. The lite / portable build should be sufficient for people building a website for testing locally and on the go.

olliebean on 2018-10-19 14:51

Just for clarification, is the full version portable? Because the only version labelled "portable" at the download link appears to be the lite version, without FTP or Mail.

Thanks for updating "How to extract".

rb161 on 2020-07-27 22:17

Having used it for many years, Filezilla has lost its way now in my opinion. The irritating pop up balloon on every successful upload is just one of the annoyances. The latest update seemed to corrupt something on my Windows and I was reduced to about one fifteenth of the normal upload speed. Going back to an ancient version hasn't fixed the issue and the portable versions are the same. However WinSCP works fine so it's that for me from now on.

I figured out how to uninstall the user-chosen (custom) languages but it takes a little work.
1: Open PSPad.ini (if you opened it with PSPad or if PSPad is running, save it as something else).
2: Delete the UserHighLighterName# value / data pair where the language is listed (the crosshatch is either null or a number between 1 and 4).
3: Delete the language key and all value / data pairs appertaining to it.
4: If PSPad is running, close it - then replace the PSPad.ini file with your changes. Voila! Your user-selected language slot is ready for another language!
I have posted a request to add a mechanism to do this automatically on the PSPad forum which is very active and the author of the software posts often - not what you'd expect from "dead" software.
BTW: Be cautious about using the installer - it seems to have had some problems. Use the zip file instead and unpack the files to a folder of your choice.

Shadeclan on 2012-09-14 14:46

If it's ok, I'd just like to make a few more comments:
Viniciusban writes that PSPad has no comment-out tool. I don't know if that was true when he posted, but it has one now:
Format menu / Add/Remove Comment.

Webfork writes that it has trouble handling Very Large Files (VLF). In my experience, there are only a very few editors that can handle VLFs without absorbing all available RAM and none of them (with the possible exception of UltraEdit) is as full-featured as PSPad IMHO. If I must view / edit a VLF, I always use HiEditor from WinASM.net as it is made specifically to work on VLFs without hosing the computer. Unfortunately, it isn't offered on PortableFreeware.com but it is completely portable, writes all settings to an INI file and is very fast.

Tom mentions that the "stable" version is 4.5.4. Currently it is 4.5.6 and was uploaded about 11 months ago. Beta version, available from the forum and updated August 2012, is very stable - if the latest version is wanted, grab it from there.

PSPad has its problems but they all do - that's why there isn't just a single text editor that everybody uses. While Notepad++ is (undeniably) the most popular text editor for programmers, I find its interface somewhat obscure and its learning curve a bit too steep to make it useful to me. PSPad's interface is much cleaner and simpler and, if I don't use it for months at a time, I can come back to it without worrying about relearning anything - that's why PSPad is my text editor of choice.

rbon on 2019-12-25 18:09

I wanted a paf version of PSPad and I tried the online installer version of @prapper which unfortunately does not work.
So in the discussion https://portableapps.com/comment/242253#comment-242253 I left a note (# 22).
Be careful: when you extract the installer you have to delete the folders:
- $ PLUGINSDIR
- 7zTemp
and copy the rest into .\PSPadPortable.
Then update to the latest portable version which must be unpacked in .\PSPadPortable\App\PSPad\

I wonder if it supports ajax methods that typically require websockets or similar newer technologies to pull data down, or even HTTPS? If it doesn't do ajax, I may as well just wget on chron. I don't really need pause/resume/multipart type stuff.

Just trying to automate huge amounts of downloads, then test for removal of the source material later if it gets a takedown request. Then, obviously, my script automatically deletes said material from my own machine to comply with the spirit as well as the letter of the law. Any other strategy would be indecent and/or seditious, particularly with takedowns on wikileaks and similar sites. =)

Maybe I should make my Banned Autoremover standalone and give it to this site. Anybody interested? We could call it AutoB& or AutoBahn. :P

Tiny file size and very-functional download manager.

Great to use for servers that limit download speeds to a low KB/s.

My only tiny nitpick is probably to change the default download parts from 1 to 2 or maybe 4. Other than that, thumbs up!

@BGM: Yeah that would be a big help for me as well. I'm very confused about the material differences between the two services. Lord knows there's no real difference between free and paid versions of every other cloud storage service.

Could load and insert baidu (yun.baidu) cloud in the program. It will be very helpful.

This program still supports SMB 1.0, which is no longer supported by Windows 10. Very useful if you have older devices and don't want to make your Windows 10 insecure by re-enabling this protocol.

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

Diskatom on 2018-11-08 09:26

Nevertheless, the new version 2.0.4.90 comes with a ad-banner so this should be considered adware and not free & clean anymore.

Anyone else with a better eyesight cares double-checking ?

Eyes open wide, but looking the wrong direction...:-(

The new option is indeed present and working as it should, available NOT under the likely "Option" tab,
but rather from two alternate locations :

• under the "File" tab
• in the context menu

Apologies for this unwarranted agitation.

Why is MailPassView listed as a Similar/alternative app? MailPassView's function is much narrower. It only recovers passwords from email clients, and does not look for product keys. recALL recovers passwords from many different classes of program and also finds license keys. You don't even put the two programs in the same category. You have recall listed under Security - Product Key Recovery, while you have MailPassView under Security - Password Recovery.

I wish I could convince Adobe to offer a "nagware" version of (let say) "Photoshop"

What it's done here it's a bit childish; if the application is not good erase the thing, if it is good just accept it as it is, but do not distribute buggy ancient versions.
