Does the software let you do an export to a text format, so you could massage the exports together and merge back in?

After the first post, I thought the next one would be Reece Withoutherspoon.

I had forgotten how much crap proprietary software Toshiba includes.  Spent much of my time researching what I can discard

So... since you've done the research, which of the Toshiba "value added items" did you do away with?  I still need to do some decrapifying on mine...  ;D

I didn't get these steps at the end... did you use Paypal?  I just clicked the paypal button under the family option and paid by paypal and that was it...?

I did Paypal, and after it said it couldn't quite figure out what I bought, I filled in the name I used in the Winpatrol spot, and then it popped up the code page:

Did you not get a page like this?

I snagged a Family Pack as well, not just because it's good stuff but to encourage more of this sort of thing :-)

Interesting... just saw this thread after your post, and the nncron program looked very tempting.  When I visited the web site, I found that it hasn't been updated since around the time of your first post, in 2008 ;D

Yep, and it works great!  I posted kudos in the other thread (sorry I didn't find it before I started this new one :(...)

You have so much great stuff in here, I should spend a day figuring it all out...

I have seen most often the lowest-performing subsystem is graphics, however with pressure on hard drives due to the flood in Thailand most manufacturers are using fairly slow drives.  It's easier to get a faster hard drive on a laptop (i'm saving up for a hybrid for mine), somewhat harder to upgrade the video...

I love the new cursor options for region captures!  :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup:  Unmatched flexibility - just awesome work!!!

I'm of two minds (heh - two more than normal I think) about the traveling zoom magnification panel - that's a lot of screen redraws if there's a background image in its path.

But if I beg and plead can we set one of them to default on LeftClick? Pleeese?  ;)

If you had the option, would you want just the simple left-click configurable, or would you want to allow shift, ctrl & alt combinations too?  That would give you four methods with a click or key + click.

SJ - I'm so sorry.  That's never easy.  Been there many times.

awesome - can't wait to see what you have up your sleeve! :)

Certainly MSE, and I need actual MS Office rather than Libre.  Let's see what else - I'll look at my installers folder alphabetically...

7-zip (although i am also trying out haozip)
asap utilities
cisco vpn client
cmd-open-install (a better command-prompt-here alternative)
my "copy-into-winnt" folder - a bunch of no-install-needed single-exe-file utilities I use constantly
display fusion
dolphin text editor menu
elevation powertoys
mailstore (just started trying this)
noise ninja (for photoshop)
paragon hdm suite pro
screenshot captor
send to toys
spflite editor (awesome especially if you did any ibm mvs/jes work!)

plus odds & ends as needed :-)

LaunchBar Commander / Re: Drag files from menu / dock

I'm not sure I understand.  I can drag a file from my file manager onto my Photoshop icon, and it will open the file in Photoshop.  I have a stack of program icons on the right edge of my left-hand monitor for just that purpose.  I think that's the opposite direction from what you're asking (drag the file onto the program, instead of drag the program onto the file) but is that significant?

I especially like the warm, personal greeting that they chose for me...

for me the most important file management related tool is not a file manager but [url=http://www.listary

:up: :up: Agree on several counts!  Listary rocks (I even paid for the licensed version), and it works great in xplorer2 (like other add-ins - Supercopier, shell extensions, etc)!

I found elevate32 and elevate64 (from, maybe those will work for you.  They're in the Elevation Toolkit under Misc Tools.

But of course I must now re-test Xplorer2; I have forgotten why I didn't like it.

Yah, with what, 30 or 40 options, it's hard to keep them all straight...  :D

General Software Discussion / yet another file manager thread...
« on: April 08, 2012, 02:16 PM »
Anyone up for another alternate file manager thread?

I ended up buying a lifetime Xplorer2 Ultimate license recently, and it cost me only a wee bit more than my DOpus 2-pc license of a few years ago.  I couldn't stand Win 7 Explorer any longer (the reasons are legion) even though it has improved in some ways from the XP days, and even though I was hoping to find a satisfying free alternative, I couldn't do it.  I tried most of the other pay-fors as well, and almost chose XYplorer but ended up not going that route for several reasons.

I'm liking it more and more the more I use it and I'm very satisfied, but I'm curious about the main reasons folks choose one FM versus another.  Or even why people decide they don't want to use an alternative, even a free one!

OK, next question, what is the framework?  Do you want a batch utility to do this and return a result you can check, or documentation on what to look for to incorporate into a routine you are writing, or ??

Looks cool!  Welcome aboard!

rgdot - wish I could say it was original with me, I saw it many years ago and it resonated!  :)

Network drives - yes definitely.  Anything else will work, I think, if you can get it to map as a drive letter (e.g., with ftpdrive, netdrive, etc).
