Print Directory


Printing directory is something that everyone has needed now or then. This simple-looking task unfortunately turns to be a bit hard as there is no built-in support to do that in Windows.

I recently found this cool tool that can Print Directory tree easily.

There is a video tutorial on how to print directory her:

The main goal of this free tool is the disk cleanup task, and printing a directory is just a tiny feature from all the things it can do. With its Explore style interface you can start using the tool right away without the need of checking the documentation. The application can scan certain folders or entire hard drives and present the results sorted by size in a neat report. This makes it easy to determine the space hogs immediately. The distribution of disk space is also visualized with nice pie and bar charts that can be interactively used for navigation too.

I will focus on the options to print the contents of a folder here rather than discussing the many fancy features of Folder Size. So in short there is a Windows Explorer context menu “Scan with Folder Size” and all you have to do is to navigate to the folder that you want to print and use it. This will start the application which will scan the corresponding folder and list all the files and sub-folders of the selected item.

In order to print the results use the File->Print option. This will display the Print Preview dialog where you can choose multiple options. Folder Size prints to many formats including the proprietary PPV (Print Preview), PDF, EMF or multi-page TIFF, of course it will print to the printer too.

Download this FREE tool and save valuable disk space by organizing your files.

Printing directories is easy as pie with the help of the Folder Size application.

Find And Delete Duplicate Pictures and Photographs

Find And Delete Duplicate Pictures and Photographs

In our digital era shooting and editing digital photos is part of our daily life. Unfortunately we rarely keep a well organized database. We copy images to temporary locations in different formats that we needed at certain points of our work and forget to delete them. Searching for a photograph by its content was an impossible task for a computer so soon we are going out of storage. In such situations what comes extremely handy is a product developed by MindGems Inc.

I am going to introduce you here – Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder. Though a bit long, the name of the product describes it perfectly well. The product will find similar images regardless of the file name, format, image size and bit depth. Image processing is a heavy task and the performance achieved by this application is incredible. It manages to scan thousands of images in few minutes. I got also some information from the company about a new feature that will be available in the upcoming version. A photo search option. It will let you search for images by a sample. You will no longer have to search for your wedding photos. Do you remember that photo you mailed to John? Just load it in Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder and it will find the rest of the images for you. A very nice feature that will let you find the rest of the images from the set by loading a single sample.

Many professionals and also advanced photographers take images in RAW format. The quality of the RAW images is much better compared to JPEG, but the drawback is the size and the fact that very small amount of products supports it. The good news here is that Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder will provide also a RAW support soon for all the popular camera brands available on the market.

I must admit also the vast variety of image formats that it supports. Here is a complete list:

  • JPEG Bitmap (*.jpg;*.jpeg;*.jpe)
  • Compuserve Bitmap (*.gif)
  • Portable Network Graphics (*.png)
  • TIFF Bitmap (*.tif;*.tiff;*.fax;*.g3n;*.g3f)
  • JPEG2000 Files (*.jp2)
  • JPEG2000 Code Stream (*.j2k;*.jpc;*.j2c)
  • Targa (*.tga;*.targa;*.vda;*.icb;*.vst;*.pix)
  • Paintbrush (*.pcx)
  • Windows Bitmap (*.bmp;*.dib;*.rle)
  • Windows Metafile (*.wmf)
  • Enhanced Windows Metafile (*.emf)
  • Windows Icon (*.ico)
  • Windows Cursor (*.cur)
  • Wireless Bitmap (*.wbmp)
  • Portable Pixmap (*.pxm;*.ppm)
  • Adobe Photoshop (*.psd)

Free Up Valuable Disk Space Using a Free Tool – “Fast Duplicate File Finder”


Free Duplicate File Finder

Free Duplicate File Finder

Sometimes when you have a lot of different types of data on a hard drive, it’s easy for files to get mixed up and you forget which files contain which information. Hard drive space is valuable, but sometimes it’s very easy to get multiple files that contain the same information. Normally, your system won’t recognize this, nor will it do anything to cut down on the use of hard drive space. All the system really looks at is the filename, rather than the contents. This is done because sometimes people want to create backup files, but often it ends up just using more space than is needed. Fast Duplicate File Finder is a program that can help to find duplicate files on your hard drive.

Fast Duplicate File Finder works by looking at the binary code – all the 0s and 1s that make up your file and searching for similar code instances between files. It’s a simple matter of specifying file extensions and previewing the contents of the files. Fast Duplicate File Finder supports plenty of different file types – text, video, image and music files can all be previewed within the easy-to-use interface. After you scan for a particular file, the program will pull up a menu, informing you of other files that matched its own code and marking them to be deleted. You can specify which file types or subfolders should be excluded from this marking, which means you don’t have to worry about accidentally deleting files you wanted to keep. Mainly, this applies to system folders where most of your operating system files and drivers are kept. If these are accidentally deleted, the machine would malfunction and Fast Duplicate File Finder protects those files by default.

When duplicate files are found, you can move them to the Recycle Bin, move them to their own folder or simply delete them from the hard drive entirely. Not only can this software can find duplicate files on standard hard drives, it can work with network folders and removable storage devices such as CDs, DVDs or USB Flash drives.

This doesn’t have to interfere with your work either – the software is capable of scanning your computer during idle time by setting its process to the lowest priority. Fast Duplicate File Finder will run on all Windows operating systems. To install the program, you should have minimum 128 MB of RAM and 2 MB of hard drive space.
