Thanks skwire ! Wink

I am using version 4.8.2 (caution to click "skip" 2 times during install) with success on win8.1 64bits. Wink

Thanks for the option idea :
"(...)Search for archives" options, no?
I have also added : include : only *.rar files. Wink

Thanks again Wink

Hello skwire,
Thanks. Wink Yes; In fact just before asking today's question here, I have tested it (see latest release here : on Win8.1 64bits and it didn't worked (I can't drag and drop a folder on it). ;(
The author explains why here :
" I currently develop on Windows 7 and refuse to upgrade to Windows 8 because its garbage so I won't be able to fix Windows 8 specific bugs."

Thanks in advance Wink

I have just realized that I have not used the last version ! I do some tests and I get back to you. Wink
caution: when installing last version 4.8.2 (apparently there are some malware inside) ! I am currently using malwarebytes to remove those. ;(
4 Software / Post New Requests Here / (DONE) REQ: (Autohotkey script): auto unzip rar files in a folder recursively ? on: May 09, 2015, 09:03:04 AM
Dear all,

5 years ago, skwire helped me with this unzipping request http://www.donationcoder....m/index.php?topic=21424.0
But today I have found 3 things that are annoying me with skwire's solution with .rar files:
"Here's the 7-zip version: Download : http://skwire.dcmembers.c...pps/snacks/ "

1) Extract .rar files inside current directory not root folder.
All .rar files located inside these folders :
C:\test\2015-04\1\ and C:\test\2015-04\2\
are unzipped inside this folder:
instead of this folder :
C:\test\2015-04\1\ and C:\test\2015-04\2\ respectively.

2) Possibility to delete .rar files once unzipped

3) Possibility to unzip only .rar files

Note: currently I still using this old unzipping software for unzipping mainly .zip files (it doesn't work well with .rar files unzipping only one per session). I am still using it years later (even in windows 8.1 64bits) because it respects the windows 260 characters limits or so. This is less powerful that 7zip (which has no limit) but I am sure that later on, other windows softwares (that have the windows 260 characters limit) can read the unzipped files. Wink

Many thanks in advance Wink

7  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What is the currently best Desktop Search software? on: January 14, 2015, 01:34:01 AM
Dear All,

Here are my tests results so far comparing : Copernic Desktop Search vs. X1 Search vs. Dtsearch vs. Archivarius 3000 (limited to 10,000 files due to trial limit).
I tested them on only : one of my archive folder (year 2008) + one folder containing some emails (.eml) + one folder containing some big pdf files and one .epub file).
Note: IMHO file numbers are to be taken with a grain of salt as depending on the default software configuration some extensions that I don't care much about could have been included or excluded (I care about htm html doc pdf xls ... see images).

See joined images. Wink

Conclusion so far for me: I think I am going to buy dtsearch once I have tested it with my full archives.
For now dtsearch is faster doing the index plus the size of the index is smaller.
And one thing that I like is that it displays some extracts (not for all pdf or html files. I don't know why ?) of each results (alas not for all file extensions) with the keyword highlighted ala (see option: "First hit in context") ! Wink

Archivarius 3000 test : I also like the fact that extracts of keyword are displayed but displays only results as txt ! ;(

ps: It is not in the images, but I also tested them with the same folders containing only zip files. Dtsearch was again the winner for indexing speed (2 time faster than with unzipped version!). Alas for me I have too many zip files inside zip files, it finds the keywords ok but when I want to open the file I am let with one zip file opened but not the related file opened. Anyway I'll keep my unzipped folders. Wink

Hoe this helps Wink

I have tried X1 with the big pdf file inside your link : http://www.donationcoder....=2434.msg220457#msg220457
Indeed, to my surprise, the pdf is not indexed in full by X1 ! I have tested it into another big pdf file of mine and I have the same result ! ;(
I don't know why but X1 stops indexing pdf files after some number of characters. Maybe 1Million or something else like Google Drive? I don't know !

Also I noticed that X1 did not index some of my yearly subfolders (see above).

I going to test dtsearch ! Wink

Hi Peter,
Thank you for your comments and stackoverflow link. Wink

It's evident 2 million (!) files cannot reach any "NTFS limit"
I agree. I was obviously not clear enough !
In fact here what I did to reach some kind of NTFS limit in one hard drive when I unzipped a monthly archive a few months ago. (The solution was to remove the unzipped version of some previous months and add them into another HDD) :
First, I have 2 version of my data:
- one is zipped (no problem here. Total size here is more than 2 To).
- one is the same but unzipped version.
In the unzipped version has (from memory !) more than 10 Millions files in total, but I chosen to index the content of only some of the files : (about 2millions) For instance I index pdf, doc, many small eml files... etc But I do NOT index the filename or content of images .jpg,gif.. .js files...).
Since the last 15 years I have saved a lot of html files (http://www.donationcoder....php?topic=23782.msg215928).

Thanks again for your link and especially this comment which I think is relevant to me ! Wink

12  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: My (not so good) experience with backblaze ! on: January 10, 2015, 04:37:24 AM

To be fair I can add that Backblaze, a few months later after my problems, increased the size of their among other technical things.
So more than 1.5 year later, I am still a customer probably because broadly the reasons given here http://www.donationcoder....29964.msg283957#msg283957 are still valid.
I have now about 2 To of data saved in backblaze (about 700,000 files and 2 Go for
But by that time, beside keeping local backup on several places, I have added copies of my data into other cloud providers : Google Drive (1To limit - I hope they increase it soon ! Wink ) and (*) (it saves my Gmail emails and google Drive daily with unlimited storage with amazon cloud. I currently have more than 2To saved there).
By the way I also use Syncdocs for (only) uploading data into Google Drive as it is far more reliable than the Google Drive uploader !

So I now don't use anymore Raid mirror on my pc as I have several physical copies + several online copies of my data.
I hope this helps Wink
See ya

(*) (Note: you & I get a $5 discount if you follow this link : ). They save once (if you have lot of data) or twice a day your Gmail inbox,draft,trash...+ Google Drive (but not google plus photos or script or forms because they can't be exported from google with google API) so you can restore (or export on your computer) your old emails and Google Drive files easily. Once saved, they can't delete anything and keeps all data incrementally. You will probably have to wait a few days so that they do a first full backup of your data.
13  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What is the currently best Desktop Search software? on: January 10, 2015, 03:12:54 AM
Update: one day after. I have updated several contents of this post. It may be better to read it again in full ! Wink
Dear all,

1) For keyword search in files content - Locally on my PC
I was using Copernic Desktop Search (CDS) for years (since V2 I think). A month ago I was still using their V3.7 released a long time ago.
I have bought their V4 more than one year ago but even recently it was too buggy for me. Note when V3 was released years ago, I remember that I had to wait one year so that it was not buggy ! Well, I don't think I can say they care about their customers (note: it costs a one time fee of about $50. And 50% coupon when a new version was released)!

Now I am testing X1 Search V8 for the last 10 days (I remember having tested unsuccessfully X1 when it was with yahoo. Apparently they changed the full code of their program around 2010 which I have missed!). So far I quite happy overall especially since it displays faster in the preview pane xls, pdf and html files.
The only problem I had is that it doesn't display correctly accents in the preview pane html files (see

With CDS V3.6 size of the index was 85 Go with about 2,000,000 files indexed (Note: In one hdd drive I even hit the NTFS limit : too much files to handle ! edit: see http://www.donationcoder....39992.msg373167#msg373167) . It took about 15 days to complete 24/24 7/7.
I still haven't finished indexing all my contents (mainly xls doc ppt mdb csv zip pdf eml msg files) with X1. So far speed of indexing and size of the index seems to be about the same. But I'll try to update that info here. Wink edit1: Apparently I have some locally saved email (.eml) that were not indexed. I need to try to find why ! Edit2: I have tried several thing but it won't index some eml files ! I also checked and discovered that some subfolders were not indexed even if X1 says all the index is up to date. I have tried 3 times to re-index and the last time it found alone some yearly folders that it had missed the first time !  I have still some yearly subfolders not indexed !

Update : Done. In my case with the same computer and the same data content (about 2,000,000 files) to be indexed, X1 did it in 10 days (5 days less than CDS V3.6) and the size of the index is 52 Go (less 33Go than CDS) ! See edits above! Note;: I had some strange problems yesterday. X1 was stuck and then suddenly it started to use twice the same amount of the size index ! Grrr I moved the index on another HDD from a SSD. I let it finish the indexing and moved back to the SSD where the index size is again the normal size (52Go)! Now I need to test extensively to see if everything is ok with X1 ! I'll try to update again about it here !

I haven't tested dtsearch yet (so I don't know if it is better/faster. Dtsearch index size seems to be 15% the size of the indexed content. so my guess is that the index will be bigger than with CDS or X1). Price seems high $200 but X1 is $50 +$25 each year. So maybe I'll give it a try. Wink In fact after watching some videos about it, I won't try it will try it even if I don't use regex for searching keywords, and because the interface seems not very enough user friendly (I don't want to click many times just to do a keyword search !).

1 bis) For keyword search in files content - online in the cloud

I have also uploaded my data in Google Drive (see my experiments here http://www.donationcoder....34797.msg373077#msg373077 ). There, it also does index the content of the files with some limits : for instance :
- index only the first 100 pages of pdf files - But if you open a 1000 pages pdf files and do a keyword search in it, it will find the keyword !
- index only the first million characters of any file (
- may not be able to open very large xls files (note: I already created Google Drive Sheets close to the 2,000,000 cells limit but it consumed close to the 2Go RAM limit of Firefox 32Bits !). In reality I stay closer to less than 20 MB for xls files.
- doesn't display small extracts of the files (like we see when we do a keyword search in So you have to open each files to see if it is the document you were looking for !
- you have to wait a few seconds for the UI to preview or open the file.
- doesn't display correctly html files. In fact it displays the html code only !! This is strange as gmail can do so properly without images when you send a joined html file in an email !
If you have millions of small files (html plus their related gif etc files..) it may very difficult (it creates easily orphaned files without telling about it...!mydiscussions/drive/qM_Wdt6ElRQ) ! My next goal is to convert my html files in txt so I can do searches on it inside google drive. But I hit another problem : Google drive folders are not folders like in your pc but labels (see!mydiscussions/drive/qM_Wdt6ElRQ). It can take ages when you want to upload such many thousands files in Google Drive. It loads somewhere in a server memory all the google drive files, before adding new ones.  Plus you can't search yet easily in a folder.

2) For keyword search in filenames only
I also use Everything for file searching. I like their folder filters shortcut (search only in some pre-defined folders).
I also use Listary files searching when I have opened a folder with many files. It can search inside very fast (I use it also for selecting very fast folders that I have previously bookmarked).

Well, as someone wrote hereafter, I think I am closed to limits for indexing all my data ! But day after day, it becomes better ! Wink

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

In case this helps : I have found a way to do that with this freeware : 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
+ hit search then hit replace

2) cut anything before keyword1 :
with regex +multiline + dot as newline checked
+ hit search then hit replace

voila ! Wink

16 Software / Coding Snacks / [done] REQ: Removing anything before keywordA and after keywordB in .htm files on: March 15, 2014, 02:20:03 PM

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" "

17 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_LoopFileFullPath%\*.*"
But I am lost ! ;(

2) unzipping with 7zip

A problem for me is that it does not delete .7z files once they have been unzipped

Thanks in advance Wink

18  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Create an RSS feed for any webpage, monitor changes and send results by email? on: February 09, 2014, 04:56:13 AM

@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 (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.

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 for other rss feeds (outside yahoo pipes, because it can only check it once a day

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!)  ! 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.

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.

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

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.

[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 :

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 : )

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" and remove "accent" and "Symbols". Wink

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

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
(note: there are thousands of rows)

I would like to cut and paste those files into another folder.
I have tried the freeware Puresync ( but it is too buggy alas (not transferring every files...). ;(

Any other idea ?
Thanks in advance Wink
