Hi nkormanik,

I still use unziplify in windows 8.1 64bits. And it still works fine for me. Apparently you can find it here now :

2  DonationCoder.com Software / Coding Snacks / Re: [done] REQ: Removing anything before keywordA and after keywordB in .htm files on: March 16, 2014, 04:39:16 AM
Hello,

In case this helps : I have found a way to do that with this freeware : DNgrep
http://code.google.com/p/dngrep/

I select the folder where the htm files are located. Then I click on the right icon and I write "*.htm".

Here are the regex :

1) cut everything after keyword2 :
with regex +multiline + dot as newline checked
replace
keyword2.*
with
nothing
+ hit search then hit replace

2) cut anything before keyword1 :
with regex +multiline + dot as newline checked
replace
.*?keyword1
with
nothing
+ hit search then hit replace

voila ! Wink
see ya

Hello,

I have many htm files in a folder.
I would like that an Autohotkey script opens one file, then delete anything before keyword A and after keyword B. Then save and close the htm file.
And repeat the same process for all the other htm files in the folder.

note: Keyword A & B can be a long phrase like "var this_is<_a long: "phrase" "

Thanks by advance Wink


4  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / IDEA: zip (and later Unzip) all main sub-folders at once with 7zip on: March 04, 2014, 08:13:43 AM
Dear all,

In the past years I have already made some similar requests that are (still) working with Winrar :

A) zip all main sub-folders at once with Winrar
see : http://www.donationcoder....ic=4657.msg33048#msg33048

B) For unziping I use Unziplify (it checks several times if a new zip is inside the just unzipped folders).


Now, I would like to do the same with 7zip as it creates very small 7z files in my case Example: 5.7 Go not zipped files becomes 1 Go rar file (note : I can't do it in .zip file as 2 Go limit reached) or a smaller 50 Mo only 7z file !! Time spent to do the zipping is the same aprox 10min.
1) zip all main sub-folders at once with 7zip
I guess I have to change this row :
Formatted for Autohotkey with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. RunWait,c:\Program Files\WinRar\WinRar.exe a -r -ep1 -m3 "%TargetPath%\%A_LoopFileName%.zip" "%A_LoopFileFullPath%\*.*"
http://www.donationcoder....ic=4657.msg33048#msg33048
But I am lost ! ;(

2) unzipping with 7zip

http://www.donationcoder....21424.msg192414#msg192414
A problem for me is that it does not delete .7z files once they have been unzipped


Thanks in advance Wink

Hi,

@IainB : Thanks for your suggestions. Wink I have already tried Update scanner in the past. It is not enough useful for me.

My request is old but it is still a needed one! Wink
For the moment I am still using yahoo pipes (I often use it to keep only feed titles ; or getting the full content of a few urls) and website watcher in order to receive emails (about 2000 bookmarks monitored - I can also get for instance : only one big email every 12 hours for rssfeed bookmarks that are checked every hour - the current website watcher maximum limit being 99 items for a bookmark). (*)
I also use Yahoo Pipes with http://ifttt.com/ (in order to receive emails when a new item is available in the rss feed created with yahoo pipes).

Furthermore, Yahoo pipes have some usage limits :

200 runs (of a given Pipe) in 10 minutes

200 runs (of any Pipe) from an IP in 10 minutes

If you exceed the 200 runs in a 10 minute block, your Pipe will be 999'ed for a hour.

We currently are not raising rate limits. This may change in the future.

http://pipes.yahoo.com/pi.../docs?doc=troubleshooting

So sometimes, ifttt has some errors. See in the activity log I often have "General Trigger Error" or "Trigger Initialization Timeout". Note: They check rss feeds every 15 minutes and it is free. Wink

note:  I also use the free-ad-supported plan http://blogtrottr.com/ for other rss feeds (outside yahoo pipes, because it can only check it once a day https://blogtrottr.com/help/#limited_domains).

The main idea is still to create something similar for windows to yahoo pipes rss feeds or the more visual and easier (but often offline!) http://open.dapper.net/  ! Wink

If a software developer comes by here : be welcomed ! Wink

Thanks in advance Wink


(*) In order to do that, the basic trick in Website Watcher is to : double left click on a rss bookmark checked every hour / choose the "new version" / copy the url starting by C:\ / create a new bookmark and paste the url and check it every 12 hours/ then remove the send an email with the one hour check bookmark + keep the most recent 99 articles in both bookmarks.

I  have removed "@echo off".
I have tried several things and it seems to work for simple folders and filenames. But strangely it doesn't does not work for all.

Quote
C:\prog\CopyFileList.cmd G:\transfer\ C:\1\!Not_Searchable.txt

I am adding an example that is not working for me (only one file is copied. If I have similar more paths, it copies only the first file).

I am on Win7 64 Bits. My language is french. I have removed accent from filenames.

Thanks in advance Wink

I have tried your script.
I added "CopyFileList.cmd" into the root of C:\prog\ (I also tried C:\)

and execute (run) : C:\prog\CopyFileList.cmd G:\transfer C:\prog\PDFTextChecker\1.txt

It copied only the first listed pdf file (with its full directory structure) and no other pdf file.

Thanks in advance Wink

Hi,

Many thanks "4wd" ! Wink)

This is very good ! Wink)

I have another request if it is  possible :
Sometimes I have I have one file in a folder that has the same name (but not the same content) than another one into a subfolder. Then the command line asks me to choose : would I like to overwrite such file or not.
The problem being that it can erase a good pdf file.
It would be great if it could keep the same folder and sufolders structure than the source. Like that I would be sure that there won't be any overwriting. Wink

Or if that is not possible, always rename automatically the new filename by appending some numbers at the end for instance.

Quote
[The following is just for fun as I think I have a solution :
- I did a test with one accent inserted in the filename of a valid pdf file :
"111éjojd.pdf"

Formatted for Generic Code with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. chcp 65001
  2. for /f "tokens=* usebackq" %I in (`type "C:\prog\PDFTextChecker\1.txt"`) do copy "%~I" G:\transfer
(By the way I have used this tip for copying the above code on the command line : http://www.techspot.com/g...1-paste-cmd-using-ctrl-v/ )

note: If I remove the accent "é", the file can be copied. Wink

I have tested with :
- UTF-16 => error I when I type chcp 1200 ("coding page not valid")
- UTF-8
- chcp 1147 (France)
- chcp 20297 (France)

Alas each time the file was not copied. ;(

My solution is to use a renamer : the great freeware "Bulk Rename utility" http://www.bulkrenameutility.co.uk/Download.php and remove "accent" and "Symbols". Wink

Thanks in advance Wink

ps: Thanks for the idea "MilesAhead", I'll prefer "4wd"'s way for now. Wink

Hello,

I have a list of files ("!Not_Searchable.txt") created using the great freeware PDFTextChecker (http://www.donationcoder....m/index.php?topic=27311.0).

Here is an example of what is inside the text file (it may contains accents or non-ASCII characters) :
F:\1_B\2003\01 2003\important\publication 01 2003\Béec2002.pdf
F:\1_B\2003\01 2003\important\publication 01 2003\Béec2001.pdf
F:\1_B\2003\01 2003\important\publication 01 2003\Béec2000.pdf
...
etc
...
(note: there are thousands of rows)

I would like to cut and paste those files into another folder.
I have tried the freeware Puresync (http://www.jumpingbytes.com/en/puresync.html) but it is too buggy alas (not transferring every files...). ;(

Any other idea ?

Hi !

(*)
About a month ago one of their support member answered me twice. He labeled my ticket as "high priority" (see https://twitter.com/mebal...47070857217/photo/1/large) then I took many time to write some detailed answers. Atfer 11 days without answer, he deleted my ticket.

and

I wrote a new ticket explaining that I had no answer. Somebody else was assigned to it but I received no answer !

See ya
17  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / My (not so good) experience with backblaze ! on: April 29, 2013, 05:56:19 AM
Dear all,

An online backup company is supposed to back my data. I am customer since April 2011. I have recommended their service on this website (see :
http://www.donationcoder....29964.msg283957#msg283957 ).


Here is my (not so good) experience :

1) March 2012 : Too bad ! I've chosen the wrong option and I just lost my uploaded data (500 Go).
I did not make this error the first time I have used it.

--------

Here is why I think the backblaze guidelines misleaded me : for computer‑hp[3] , I was in a hurry and read fast :
see the following part at the bottom of this link : https://secure.backblaze.com/user_overview.htm
"COMMON QUESTIONS : • My computer died and I have a new one, what should I do?"

I have thought : does my computer has failed ? Yes. So I have followed the text : this was my error (I didn't use "Transfer Backup State") !

IMHO you should make your explanations more clear i.e. : like this :

If your computer has crashed : you have 2 options :
#1 : you don't want to keep your previous uploaded data and install blackblaze software on another (new) computer, follow these guidelines :
"My computer died and I have a new one, what should I do?"

OR

#2 : You want to keep your previous uploaded data as one of your hard dives has failed or you are adding a new hard drive to your computer ? Follow the guidelines under "How do I transfer a license to a different computer?"

--------


I asked them to correct this and add a simple delay if one customer makes an error. But they didn't change their process or their guidelines ! (even if they now add the current date to the name of the computer when you add a new one - that was another of my suggestion...). I even wrote to their CEO and received... no answer !




2) April 2013 : Sorry there is a bug in our software : you are forced to delete your uploaded data !   What ? I have just lost (1,100 Go) ! Too bad for me : just start over from zero !
I have spent more than one year to upload my data (DSL line) ! ;(

bzfileids.dat too large ? :

Greetings,

Thanks for contacting us. I think I know what is going on, but you'll have to help fill in some details. Something has gone slightly haywire on your system that we are seeing in very few customers backups related to the bzfileids.dat file.

There is a very specific file on your disk that is part of Backblaze which has bloated up to be too large. It is called "bzfileids.dat" and is found here:

Mac: /Library/Backblaze/bzdata/bzbackup/bzfileids.dat
Windows Vista/7: C:\ProgramData\Backblaze\bzdata\bzbackup\bzfileids.dat
Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\All users.windows\Application data\backblazebzdata\bzbackup\bzfileids.dat

This is a very simple file, it is a mapping from your filenames to a totally unique integer ID that is anonymous that we use to identify your files in the Backblaze datacenter. This means we never know any of your file names, or file contents.

For some reason, your computer wants to backup a few million files and your bzfileids has grown very large (yours is over 1 GB). When bztransmit (the process that runs once per hour) starts up, it reads this bzfileids.dat file into RAM. On a normal machine, this is about 20 MB, but on your machine something has gone haywire and bzfileids has grown far too large.

Now, there are several things that contribute to this file being large, so you can think about how this happened and let us know. We're trying to understand this situation better:

A) If you have ever renamed a Time Machine folder at the top of your hard drive, Backblaze will bloat up trying to back it up. It is absolutely not supported to "back up a back up" and Backblaze can only function properly backing up the originals.

B) Lots of files. If you knew of a folder with hundreds of thousands of small files that didn't change much you could back them up differently or exclude them from Backblaze backups.

C) Renaming top level folders with a lot of files. For example, if your top level folder name is "/my_music" and it contains 100,000 file names in it, then when you rename it "/my_great_music" Backblaze needs to add all of those filenames to that bzfileids.dat file which bloats it up. So the best thing you can do is keep your enormous folders the same over a long period.

D) Shorter Path Names. It would be best if your hundreds of thousands of files are on a disk called "d" instead of "disk_that_contains_files" and the top level folder is called "f" instead of "folder_for_lots_of_files". Etc. The shorter the paths, the smaller the bzfileids.dat file is.

It's possible to shrink the bzfileids.dat in case they've been temporarily bloated by one of the above situations, however it requires reuploading all data to the Backblaze servers. You can follow these steps to do that:
1. Visit https://secure.backblaze.com/user_signin.htm and sign in to your Backblaze account with your email address and password.
2. Click on the "Account" link in the upper left hand corner
3. Select your "old" computer from the list of computers.
4. Click the "Delete Computer" link next to it. This will delete the backed up data, the bloated bzfileids.dat and free up the paid license.
5. Click on "Overview"
6. Click the download link for your operating system in the bottom right corner.
7. Install Backblaze.

Here's the problem. If you cannot reduce the number of files or path names significantly, then you absolutely are going to encounter this issue again. We are working on a fix for it, but it is proving to be very difficult and currently our engineering team has no ETA on a fix. If you uninstall and reinstall without changing anything, then your backup might start working again, but you will reencounter this problem a little ways down the road.


----
Here is why I think I had this problem : yesterday I have added a new drive F:\ to be backup.
Alas it has removed all the folders I have added previously in the the exclusion tab (I was aware of this bad backblaze client behaviour, but I did not remember it!)  .
Futhermore I think clicked on ok too fast and forgot to exclude some folders on the new drive that contains millions of files.

Then just after I have tried to exclude them as I was hearing my drive (E:\ and F\ are on the same physical drive) running like crazy during a lot of minutes. This was too late to be stopped !
Then I rebooted my computer and got the backblaze's error message.

Usually I just mainly upload zip files of my 10+ years archives (big zipped files containing many htm and their related files : gif etc...) and keep an unzipped folder on my pc (on F:\) just to make keywords searches on it.
I just keep the current month unzipped in backblaze and a few big video files. Like that I have about 500,000 files to upload (about 1To size). This can be managed by backblaze fine. Wink


But now I am blocked : I can't change the amount of files the Backblaze client has counted !
Even if I am sure (with the same folders excluded) I have 'only' 500,000 files to upload in total (1.1 To), it keeps saying :
Selected : 3.2 Millions files (2 To)
Remaining : 2.7 Millions files (0.9 To)
Please see screenshots.

- If I remove the F:\ drive, it changes nothing. (*)

- If I had some folders in E:\ in the exclusion tab, it changes nothing. (I cant' remove C:\ !) (*)

- And this is the same thing if I remove fully the E:\ drive ! (*)


(*) Even if I hit ALT+restore [here the strange thing is that I am not hearing my E drive running (I am sure of this as my C:\ drive is a ssd)] or if I choose "only when I click backup" and it hit backup. Or if I let it on continuously !

I have tried to download a new backblaze client and install it. Alas I have the same problem !
----


Here is what I finally did [EDIT: In the end this did not help me but I had no other option!] :
I made a copy of bzfileids.dat.
I deleted the original one.
Then hit ALT+restore. This seemed to do something but it didn't work.
Then I installed backblaze client again. And it created a new bzfileids.dat !
Now I just have to wait x days and all my data will be again online (like if I had a new hard drive).
In 1 day it has found 400Go out of 1100Go. And 582,000 files out of 588,000. Wink (see screenshots).
And the bzfileids.data is only 60MB (not 1 Go anymore)


----
Greetings,

Unfortunately, manually editing the bzfileids.dat file is not a viable option to resolve the bzfileids issue. Manually editing this file will likely cause issues with your backup, possibly resulting in lost or corrupted backup data. While it will appear to work, all the pointers for the existing files in your backup to the corresponding file on your system have been severed, as well as any versioning history. The only current solution we have to the issue is the upload of a fresh backup. We are working on a software update to resolve this specific issue, but until that update is complete, this is the only means of ensuring a reliable, secure backup.

Because the bzfileids file has already been manually edited and attempted to synchronize with the Backblaze backup, I would be extremely suspect of the viability of the existing backup.

To uninstall and reinstall the Backblaze application and start a fresh backup, please follow these steps:

1. Reboot your computer to make sure all Backblaze files are unlocked.
2. Uninstall Backblaze.
• Mac -- Hold down option and click on the Backblaze menu bar icon and choose Uninstall.
• Windows -- use the Add/Remove Programs utility to remove Backblaze.
The uninstaller will warn you that your backed up data will be deleted, but you can disregard this warning. The deletion does not occur immediately, so as long as you reinstall Backblaze within a week, you can continue with this process.

3. Visit https://secure.backblaze.com/user_signin.htm and sign in to your Backblaze account with your email address and password.
4. Click the "Home" link at the top left hand corner of the browser.
5. Click the orange "Download Again" link center screen
6. Run the installer you downloaded.

The new installation will register as a 15 day trial under your new account. You can let the trial run it's course to allow the client to upload as much data as possible before removing the old backup and transferring the paid license. Once you are ready to remove the old backup and transfer the license to the new backup, you can do so by following these steps:
1. Visit https://secure.backblaze.com/user_signin.htm and sign in to your Backblaze account with your email address and password.
2. Click on the "Account" link in the upper left hand corner
3. Select your "old" computer from the list of computers.
4. Click the "Delete Computer" link next to it. This will delete the backed up data, and free up the paid license.
5. On the Overview page click the "Use License" button next to your new computer.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

----

So I had no other option than to start over from zero !  Angry
Any way to speed my new backup ? No !  Sad
Even as it is backblaze's fault they should provide a solution like for instance : I send them a crypted hard drive (they give me a special software for that). They add it to their datacenter and they send me back my hard drive.


I must add that their support answered me within one day most of the time (* see next message).

Would I recommend backblaze ? Hard question ! I am still a customer (only one computer now. I had two before) as I have paid one year in advance. I don't know what I would do next.

I hope this helps (backblaze included) ! Wink

Hello,
I tried out Path Scanner, but it merely crashed.
http://www.parhelia-tools...pathscanner/Download.aspx
It works for me (version 1.1.0.20) with win7 64bits and WinXP.
I checked and it counts the total path (spaces included).
Example: this is counted as 189 caracters (It is correct when I use the tools/statistics in word).

Then each month I zip my archives this way (I don't use 7zip on purpose as it doesn't display error if filename is longer then 260 caracters!) ) http://www.donationcoder....um/index.php?topic=4657.0

Hope this helps Wink

Hello,

Do you know a Windows software (*) than can create an RSS feed for any webpage ?

Here is what I am looking for : I manually select what is a title, what is a link and if needed what is the content that I would like to keep (article content + their related images if they exist). The software create a RSS feed from that. Then it monitors the feed every x hours (or x days at a specified time). If updates are found then send the results to my email address.

It is a little like a combination of the Firefox addon: Autopager (WYSIWYG selection which uses Xpath https://addons.mozilla.or.../firefox/addon/autopager/) and WebSite-Watcher (RSS software monitoring http://www.aignes.com/).

Sorry for disturbing.
See ya Wink

(...) Am I right in thinking you want to convert the HTMs into PDFs because you want to put them into a Google cloud service, which indexes and OCRs PDFs?  But only shows HTMs as raw code?

Yes ! Wink

This doesn't directly answer your query, but I'm wondering; have you ever considered using a Web clipper, of which there are many?  See, e.g., the DC thread web clipping.  If you really need your data in the cloud, you might have to go to EverNote, or RightNote.
Thanks. I am aware of those products. I have started saving webpages (and their related images + audio + video..) about 13 years ago (I use Copernic Desktop pro for indexing my content right now). Those products did even exist at that time. But I prefer to be independent of them. Who knows if they still exist in the next x years ? If they go bankrupt I lose everything. ;(

Thanks anyway for the ideas. Wink
See ya Wink
Thanks also to "Curt" for his help. Wink

Dear all,

I would like to batch convert folders (and many subfolders) full of .htm and .html files to pdf files with "pdf creator" ?

I guess that "pdf creator" can be used with a command line (http://www.pdfforge.org/c...p-command-line-parameters) and maybe somebody can help me with a AutoHotkey script ? But I am not against another program as long as the pdf is OCRed.

I would like that it deletes the htm file once the job is done and keep the same filename (example001.htm => example001.pdf) inside the same folder(s).
I also would be much pleased if "pdf creator" can be run in silent mode for a specified main folder (does the job in the background).

Many thanks  in advance, Wink

ps: here is why I need this : Over the years I have saved many htm files in my computer with only one hand gesture in Firefox (see http://www.donationcoder....php?topic=23782.msg215935)
I would like to be able to make keywords searches of my archives in my Google Drive. Alas for now Google Drive displays (and index) only the code of html files. ;(
I have already copied only my htm + html files with Syncback (free http://www.2brightsparks....reeware/freeware-hub.html) and Puresync (http://www.jumpingbytes.com/en/puresync.html).
Hopefully Google Drive index the content of pdf files (first 10 pages if no OCR in the pdf file and first 100 pages if the pdf file is already OCRed. See http://support.google.com...?hl=en&answer=2423485). Hence my idea to convert my htm(l) files into pdf ones. Furthermore, converting my files decrease their size (example: .htm size : 153 ko => .pdf size : 105ko only ! Wink)
