Free Alternative to CopyWhiz (Piky Basket)?
« on: September 24, 2014, 05:26:01 AM »
Is there any free alternative to CopyWhiz 4 which was free in 2008 as Piky Basket 2.0. This is a great tool, it allows you to pick and put files/folders in a basket and drop them where you want. It makes its a lot intuitive and easier to manage files.

Is there any free alternative? I searched all the internet but could not find Piky Basket 2.0 (even torrents and other download sites). They all link to original website which is not offering the old free version any more.

Yes, here at Wayback: http://web.archive.o...rld.com/download.asp
It downloads as file: PkySetup.exe, Size: 459Kb
- which seems to install just fine on Win8.1 ...
EDIT: But actually it doesn't - it should integrate into the Explorer Shell menu, but it doesn't.

Looks like could be quite a nifty proggy - darn it! (I would have liked to try it out.)

EDIT: Couldn't find it at Last Freeware version

I am the author of Copywhiz (Piky Basket) - http://www.conceptworld.com/Copywhiz

Piky Basket (older versions) may install correctly on 32 bit Windows (Not tested). But not on 64 bit Windows.

For the feature you are looking for, I am not aware of any free alternative.

To DonationCoder members, we do offer 25% off on $19.95, which is $14.95

Maybe DropIt is what you are looking for? It's open source.

Actually all those software are pretty useless, i h' been there done that.
I don't see any reason to replace the default Windows copy/paste feature.
Works well without third party software.

Piky Basket is a great idea.

1. Unlike simple copy paste tools, you get an always on top basket or the context menu basket.

2. You drop all the items, that you want to manage. e.g. Select all books and folders of books and drop in the basket, which makes a collection of books in basket. You put all songs and softwares in the basket too. put more books, songs etc.

3. You go to the books directory and drop all books from basket in it. Which starts move/paste operation.

Is there any free tool like that?

---------------

DropIt moves the files on defined rules, which is not like Piky Basket.
