Here is what I got out of it:
 (see attachment in previous post)
  • Simple Drag and Drop interface to make life easier!
  • Click Sort and watch as your files are sorted into folder's according to their filenames!
  • After File's are sorted into folders, FileSorter cleans up after itself (deletes the now empty folders)!

Download Here: http://www.codebyter...orter/FileSorter.exe

I hope this helps... I pictured your filenames to look like something to below:

The result will be:

Please let me know if there is anything else you would like added :)

EDIT FOR IMAGE CLARIFICATION: The progress bar at the bottom is accurate but Vista's progressbar is kind of weird so I tried to capture the progress bar in motion for you.

So far looks good.
Two things that I can see;
1) Clear list button
2) Option for Move/Copy

Been busy so I have not been able to really put it through its paces but so far so good!  :)

this is quite a popular request, take a look at these threads and see if any of them suit your purpose.


All are close but no cigar!  ;D

this is quite a popular request, take a look at these threads and see if any of them suit your purpose.


Thanks! I will take a look.

I have an abundance of files that have the same prefix ie 123.xx1, 123.xx2, 456.xx1, 456.xx2 ect that need to be sorted and then placed into a directory with the name of the prefix ie c:\123, c:\456.

I only need to define the location of the resulting directory that the files will be placed.

A batch file or AHK program would be fine with me.

Thanks as always! :)

Post New Requests Here / IDEA: Download only new Podcasts from website
« on: December 19, 2008, 10:40 AM »
There are several podcasts that I listen to. I go to their website or archive page to get the latest offerings.
On the pages are several links to the podcasts available. I would like a program that will compare the files that I have
in a folder with the ones on the website and download only the ones that I have not downloaded.

I have tried numerous add on programs to Firefox but have not had any luck in being able to single out only the newest files.

An example of a podcast page I go to regularly is Buzz-Out-Loud tech podcast found at

They do daily shows so there is a new podcast every day.

Thanks as always!

Dropfolder by VideoInPicture/or skrommel simplify the whole process with just 2 clicks and without using 2 different program's.

Actually Teracopy does what the others do in 2 clicks or less also. Directfolders complements the program by allowing you to find or make a directory quickly if you are not sure where you want to put the files.

There are two programs from that I use everyday that do just about everything you are talking about.

Free utility designed to copy/move files faster and more secure. Can resume broken file transfers.

Direct Folders
Quick access to your favorite folders and files. Jump to any deeply nested folder in a single mouse click.

Both are available anytime, anywhere in your system when you are working on files, not just on the desktop. Great time savers.

Thanks for all the feedback. I will check out all the info and let you know what works out.

Thanks again!  :D

I am looking for a VERY simple wav player to play back my school lectures.

What I am unable to find in a simple player is one that will allow me to control the speed of the playback.
My instructor talks fast and it is hard to understand her sometimes. Slowing it down would be great.

It would also be nice to have ff and rev variable to go through areas and yet listen for important info.

I have found this in editing software but have accidentally edited the file by mistake.
Others are very convoluted to use.

I just want a very simple player that has what I have outlined above. Is this a lot to ask?  :tellme:

Thanks for keeping the thread alive. I will try it and let you know what I think.

PS I still enable/disable DriveGLEAM as needed.  :D

If you are just trying to access the files/shortcuts on your desktop, you can right click on on the task bar, choose toolbars and then check desktop. You will have desktop files/shortcuts access on the right of the task bar with one click while your active window(s) are still in place.

« on: September 08, 2008, 05:08 PM »
Not sure if this will do everything you want but is sure comes close.

It is a free program called allwaysync found at

It is a directory sync program but you can invoke filters to get just the output you want ie non-duplicates. You can then tell it what to do with the files and/or do nothing if you are just comparing. Very powerful. Can see  if time/date stamps match ect.

Allway Sync Features   
Free for personal use synchronization software. No spyware, adware or malware.
Easy-to-use graphical interface.
Performs true bi-directional and n-way file and folder synchronization, forget about backup and restore routines.
File modifications and deletions are tracked in a local database. So, Allway Sync knows the true history of your files - no unnecessary questions asked.
Our innovative, proprietary algorithms do not rely on the accuracy of the system clock or network connection quality. So, Allway Sync helps prevents data loss.
Generates a full report of differences between synchronization folders.
Synchronizes folders as well. Allway Sync detects when folders are removed from one device and removes them from any other corresponding synchronization targets.
Supports virtually any file system (FAT, NTFS, SAMBA, Netware, X-Drive, CDFS, UDF and more).
Can be installed on a desktop, laptop, USB stick, external HDD or a U3-enabled device (see details).
Capable of synchronizing more than two folders.
Synchronize data between your desktop PCs and laptops over a network.
A good way to backup and restore files if you run Allway Sync in one-way mode.
Specify independent synchronizarion parameters for any number of sets of folders (multiple jobs).
Transfer documents from one computer to another using an intermediate removable drive.
Or just synchronize with a removable device (USB key, flash drive, CDRW, Zip) so that you always have your data with you.
Flexible configuration and customization.
Supports files of any size.

Thanks for the link Larry, i may just try 1by1, it sounds like the kind of mp3 player i want:
1by1 is a small, fast and handy audio player which is not only small: it provides a smart and versatile environment to handle your file collection and listen to your tracks - with no need for playlists or databases.

I am glad someone else likes the idea. Let me know what you think after kicking the tires.

I wanted to let everyone know I finally found what I was looking for. Yes I have been searching ever since the post. I can finally shower and shave!  :o

I found this wonderful freeware, yes freeware program that is small, fast and simple.

It is called the Directory Player by 1by1 software

Thanks again for everyone who takes the time to help out on these sometime esoteric requests.


:) Try TheDIZs!

Extracts DIZ- and NFO-files from RAR-files.
Place UnRar.exe from in the same folder as TheDIZs.

You can run it to have it ask for a root folder, or add a folder to the command line.


; Extracts DIZ- and NFO-files from RAR-files.
; Place UnRar.exe from in the same folder as TheDIZs
;Skrommel @ 2008


If 0=0
  FileSelectFolder,start,,3,Select a folder to search for RAR files
  If start=
    MsgBox,0,TheDIZs,You didn't select a folder.

crlf:=Chr(13) . Chr(10)
FileAppend,Scan started %A_Now%%crlf%,TheDIZs.txt

  RunWait,unrar e -n*.nfo -p- %archive% %A_Temp%\%folder%\,,Hide

FileAppend,Scan stopped %A_Now%%crlf%,TheDIZs.txt

Well I finally had a chance to try this out (school has been a bitch!) but I am not getting the result I am sure you did.

This is all the text file shows when it is done
Scan started 20080212201023
Scan stopped 20080212201023

unrar.exe is in the same directory as the script.

Any idea?


Post New Requests Here / IDEA: Batch read nfo files in RAR archives
« on: February 03, 2008, 09:19 PM »
I am starting to clean out a bunch of software program files from years ago.
Some are in ZIP format but most are RAR. Inside these compressed files is an information text file with the extension of .nfo.

I would like to be able to copy the name of the archive and the text of the nfo file to a separate file so that I can determine if I want to keep or delete the archive. It is also helpful when I archive to a cd/dvd as a content file.

There are plenty of programs that will search out a ZIP file and do just what I want but not any that work with RAR that I have found. I am willing to use command line batch file if anyone is knowledgeable about the RAR archive program.

As always, many thanks in advance!

you can try this add-on: EZNav

Thanks lanux128. That is just what I was looking for. Works as advertised.

Thanks again!

I use Firefox as my primary browser.

What I would like to do is be able to increment the URL in the navigation bar on a user defined basis.

Example; "press predefined key and have a new URL as"

In the example above, 1.html was incremented to 2.html. The next one would be 3.html ect. ect.

Some sites have a mix of numbers and letters for the pages. I would need to be able to only increment the numbers of the URL.

There are a few sites that I visit that have poorly setup site navigation. In order to be able to page through the sites quicker, it would be nice to be able to press one key than having to hassle with site's navigation buttons and ads.

I think what psionics is looking for is Virtual Desktops.

A virtual desktop may also refer to setting up separate desktops for different groups of applications and being able to switch back and forth with a hotkey. For example, an architect might have one desktop for CAD and related design programs and another for spreadsheets, word processing and business applications. Grouping applications in this manner keeps the desktop from having an excessive amount of open programs on screen or on the Taskbar at one time.

Microsoft has one that is part of Microsoft PowerToys for Windows XP which can be found here;

A quick google found this opensource project VirtuaWin - The Virtual Desktop Manager

Much easier with XYplorer 6.50 (soon out): define a UDC (user-defined command) that moves selected files to your target folder, and assign a keyboard shortcut to it. If you know how to do it this one-time step takes you maybe 15 seconds. Then start your pre-listening session and hit your keyboard shortcut whenever you want to move a file. Tap, tap, tap, ... done. :)

Will give it a spin when it comes out.

just found this via Google: WinAmp File Copy. it hasn't been updated for some time but it's freeware (donations encouraged)..

lanux128  you are the MAN! :Thmbsup:

This is 95% what I am looking for. Works as advertised. A bit of clicking but no dragging and dropping.

Thanks again for looking around and finding this gem. It will save me a lot of time when I make mix cds.

when i'm creating a mix CD for my mp3 player, i use DC's own Random MixTape Maker. you can drag and drop the files from the playlist into another folder/drive..

Now we are on to something. If I could have a basic program that would take a group or folder of mp3 files, play them one at a time with a click of a button, (send them to windows media player would work) and then be able to click on another button to move the desired file to the desired folder, this would be what I am looking for.

I wonder if a AHK script could be used?

Here's how that could be done with XYplorer:
You open 2 tabs, one with the initial folder and one with the folder where you'd like to move the songs. Then, open the preview tab and when you select one, it starts playing. If you'd like to have that on the other directory, drag and drop it to the other tab.

I bet there should bet some program out there that'd do this in less steps.

I could do this with any mp3 player and windows explorer but as you say, there has to be a way to do it with less steps.

Thanks again for trying to think of ways to do this "off the shelf."  :)

Using Foobar2000 you can drag and drop songs to (another/several other) tabs - you can then select several/all songs under a tab and run a file operation like copy or move on them. Just to clarify, tabs are basically playlists and when you drag-drop a song it's replicated on the target playlist.

I was looking at foobar 2k but did not know if it would do what I wanted. This answers my question.

What I want to do is select a bunch of mp3 songs. Listen to them and then sort them by being able to click a button to copy the song being played to another predefined directory.
