The Utility Factory has released FileBoss Version 2.5, a significant upgrade to its power toolbox and file manager for controlling large, modern file systems. This release adds more ways to copy to multiple folders, a synchronize version of its popular Backup if Newer routine, industry standard xml data and options files for greater portability and a long list of new tools, upgraded existing tools and general interface enhancements. As well as a proven technology that works with the upcoming release of Windows 7.
FileBoss provides a common interface to its powerful file manager and its comprehensive set of tools for finding, renaming, copying, merging, backing up and comparing files as well as hard to find tools such as flattening and cleaning folders.
FileBoss offers a rich set of search functions for locating files that need to be managed. In addition to a comprehensive find function FileBoss allows a user to quickly find recently modified files, old files, files containing specific text, by file size, by normal and NTFS advanced attributes and even files that have paths and names over a certain length. And all of FileBoss's find routines utilize relative times as well as the traditional time and date formats.
Whether from a normal Explore view or from search results - which FileBoss calls Virtual Folders - files and folders can be copied with extreme precision and robust error handling or renamed with simplicity such as by changing spaces to underscores, changing their extensions or adding sequential numbers, to renaming with detailed control using search and replace within the names. In addition file times and parent folder names can be added to thousands of file names at once.
FileBoss also provides numerous advanced file system management routines such as copying complex folder trees without copying any files; copying files into multiple folders at one time; spinning duplicates of files and folders; managing files with very long file names (up to 32,000 bytes) that frustrate other programs; setting advanced NTFS attributes such as Temporary, Offline, Encrypted, etc; touching files; creating shortcuts; comparing, merging and purging folders and paths, flattening or cleaning folders, concatenating (joining) files and more.
For ease of use FileBoss wraps up its powerful file management routines in a single, flexible interface that allows up to fifty open tabs at a time (in multiple horizontal or vertical panes if wanted), persistent dialog and program status even when FileBoss is closed, saved searches and Virtual Folders; dynamic bookmarks and a direct-entry Command Bar for quick navigation and command entry.
Keeping pace with Windows advancement FileBoss has a 64-bit build to take full advantage of the speed and memory of Windows 64-bit systems such as Windows 2003 / 2008, Vista and the upcoming Windows 7. FileBoss's default installer contains both 32- and 64-bit versions and will transparently decide which to install.
Using industry standard xml formatted data files Virtual Folders and setup files can be read by FileBoss on any supported Windows platform, both 32- and 64-bit builds.
FileBoss is specifically designed to intrude as little as possible on the host system. It has only two executables, no DLLs or ActiveX components and writes nothing to the Windows or other system folders.
