Manage the contents of local and remote hard drives with PowerDesk Pro

Keeping a handle on your files and data can be a chore, especially if you’ve got data going to multiple places.  Its not as easy as it sounds. This is one of the biggest reasons why I like PowerDesk Pro. It’s a file management tool for Windows.

PowerDesk Professional is an easy, fast and smart way to organize and manage your files – digital photos, MP3s, web images, etc. on your PC. PowerDesk Pro gives you more features and functions than the standard Windows file manager with tools to search, edit, delete, copy, move, sort, zip, label, view, and convert your files and data.  In just a few clicks, you can use PowerDesk Pro to completely customize your PC.

PowerDesk 8 Professional completely replaces Windows Explorer with a wide array of File and File Management tools that let you perform many of the functions found on digital cameras or MP3 music players as well as your PC. You can use PowerDesk FTP to view and manage FTP sites as though they were ordinary folders on a local or networked drive. Once you’ve set up your favorite FTP sites, you can connect with them in a single click; and PowerDesk now supports Secure FTP.

Keeping files synchronized between shares is also easier with PowerDesk’s Sync Manager.  You can compare and synchronize the contents of any two folders. This is especially useful for work on files that are shared between two computers, it’s also useful for backing up and making archived versions of your files.

You can use its Size Manager to show you where and how the space on each of your drives is being used. PowerDesk also enhances the standard Windows Open and Save dialog boxes by adding a selection list for previously opened files and folders. It also provides a file viewer pane that supports over 150 file formats.  Its Archive Manager easily compresses and expands files from over 30 popular compression formats. You can use it to view archive contents and extract selected files with a simple drag and drop operation. Its File Finder quickly locates forgotten files. You can search by keyword, file type, size, or date range and see the results displayed in a single-line reference.

Keep key files and folders in sync with Beyond Compare

I’ve got data in multiple places, and want it that way. I need and want synchronized backups of important files and folders without the need to run any kind of TSR (terminate and stay resident) app. This is one of the reasons why I really like applications like Beyond Compare. It’s a file sync utility for Windows.

Beyond Compare allows you to quickly and easily compare files and folders in one folder tree to another. By using simple, powerful commands, you can focus on the differences you’re interested in and ignore those outside your concern. You can then merge the changes, synchronize your files, and generate reports for your records.
With Beyond Compare, you can compare entire drives and folders at high speed, checking just sizes and modified times; or you can thoroughly verify every file with byte-by-byte comparisons. FTP sites and zip files are seamlessly integrated into compare activities, so you can update your website with the touch of a button. Once you’ve found the specific files you’re interested in, Beyond Compare can intelligently pick the best way to compare and display them. Text files can be viewed and edited with syntax highlighting. Comparison rules can be tweaked specifically for documents, source code, and HTML. The text contents of a Microsoft Word and Adobe PDF files can also be compared; but not edited. Data files, executables, binary data, and images all have dedicated viewers as well, so you always have a clear understanding of the changes.

Automate the task of deleting files and folders which you do in a regular basis

As a software editor, part of my job involves working with several files every day. Starting with the programs that I’m downloading in order to review and ending with programs’ screen-shoots (and other images) plus various files and folders. There is a folder for downloaded programs, a folder for screen-shoots and images and quite a few more folders for other purposes. However, from time to time I have to do some cleaning in all this folders. This is not necessarily a hard task but there is always something more important to do then this. Not long ago, luckily, I’ve found a program which does this cleaning for me – Autodelete.

Basically, this program automates the task of deleting files and folders. You can select any folder or file and specify a particular time after which they are going to be deleted. To me this is very handy. I don’t want to spend the time deleting old files or folders every month manually – Autodelete does is for me.
