I've got a copy. It captures a lot more "stuff" than "My Recent Documents" does and is quite light on resources. I don't know how indispensible it is - it depends on your usage, I guess. I go for ages without using it and then little flurries where it comes in REALLY handy.

YMMV

I don't have it, but: I have NoteZilla which they make and like a lot AND I have looked at this app, thought it looked nice, and considered buying. I thought the app would be useful, but have not bought it because of privacy concerns given my occupation. Generally I find their software to be well thought out. Hope this helps any fence sitters.

Ken - like you I have a copy of Notezilla (won it here! Thank you Carl and ConceptWorld!) and love it. RecentX clears itself whenever you clear the MRU menus via windows cleanup (or whatever app - CrapCleaner for example - that you use) so privacy is an issue in the sense that people can access your documents but it isn't really any more insecure than a standard windows installation. In a way, it's almost a security feature because you can SEE what links are being retained in your registry, all in one place. "My recent documents" is a bit hit and miss in this regard in that it reliably displays recent Office docs but is not so reliable in linking to recent non-office files (strangely it's good about zip and exe files - go figure) even if they are contained in MRU entries in your registry. You can also use RecentX to clear them all... I dunno, as I said, I go for ages without even running it (for now have autostart disabled) but will then run into a situation where it is just the ticket. I like it because, as noted above, it places EVERYTHING in one location and organises them as well (tabs for Files, Folders, Webpages, etc.).

I've checked it out for a little while now. Very nice, but I won't be buying it. There doesn't seem to be anything in there that I really need and that my other apps don't already cover. With FARR2 and FileBoxExtender I've got a better solution for my needs.

But again, does what it says just fine, from what I could see in the short time I ran it.

Hmm... I feel I should amend my comments above about RecentX. Despite what the help file states, clearing your browser's cache DOES NOT remove the browsing history from within RecentX. To do this, you need to shut RecentX down and go to Drive:\Documents and Settings\UsersName\Application Data\Conceptworld\RecentX and delete* the file Websites.rxml. When you restart RecentX the webpages visited tag will be blank and the Websites.rxml file will not be recreated until you open up your browser.

If you're up to the task, you can open the rxml file in a text editor and remove any links that you don't want to be visible.

Just a heads up for the security conscious!

*Note I backed up my copy of Websites.rxml before trying the above and had no trouble restoring it.

Thanks Marjorie,

We are the developers of RecentX & NoteZilla.

>> You can use the
>> same key on NoteZilla Portable.

This is not correct. It has been misunderstood. Although the same key will work on NoteZilla Portable, you will still need to purchase separate license for NoteZilla Portable.

Gautam Jain

By the way, RecentX is available today on BDJ, only with NoteZilla. You cannot purchase it separately. When you try to buy NoteZilla from BDJ, you will get a chance to add RecentX too, to your shopping cart.
