I've released a minor update to Folder Axe, version 4.1. In this version two small features have been added. The first is a button that copies the whole log to the clipboard, the second is the ability to change where Folder Axe outputs the new folders to. I hope you enjoy Folder Axe 4.1! Here's a link to the changelog.
Alright, time for the next major version of Folder Axe! In version 4.0, two big new features are introduced.
The first new feature is the ability to combine the By Amount and By Size split types. I've been thinking about adding this for a while, but when a user emailed and asked for it, I went ahead and did it. In the future I may look into the ability to combine with other split types, but some just wouldn't be good for doing so.
The second new feature is the introduction of a new split type, By Date. When splitting by date, you choose either the creation date, last modified date, or last accessed date. Then you choose the unit of time to split by. The four options are hour, day, month, and year. (As a disclaimer, some operating systems and programs are horrible about updating file timestamps, so unexpected results aren't due to my programming)
There's one last little feature I added, which is that Folder Axe will remember the folder you chose last, and will start the folder browser dialog from that position during a session.
There was also a bug with the File Type and File Group split types which would process extensions in uppercase differently from lowercase. This has been fixed. Thanks to Eruz from PCWorld.com for pointing this out in your review of Folder Axe!
All of these features were submitted by users, if you have an idea, submit it using the contact form!
Enjoy Folder Axe version 4.0! Here's a link to the Folder Axe Changelog, which can also be found in the Readme file.
The title says it all, what do you think of the new logo? Also, it seems to me that the problem with the like button on the toolbar has been fixed, so if you like any of the pages on this site, hit that button!
Well everyone, I'm not sure why my last blog post wasn't saved properly. But I'm back! I was on a missions tip set up by Reach Workcamps. You should definitely check them out at the Reach Workcamps website!
This is your new blog post. Click here and start typing, or drag in elements from the top bar.
I've added more common disc sizes, fixed a bug with them as well, and now you also have the option of compressing your resulting folders into zip files after you split them! I'm pretty excited about this release! Head over to the Folder Axe page to check it out!
Are you a user of Folder Axe? Is there a way you think Folder Axe should be able to split folders that I haven't implemented? Well I want to hear from you! Go to the contact page and send me your idea!
I know what you guys are thinking, "Didn't he just release version 3.0 yesterday??". Well yes, I did, and I encourage you guys to go and look at the blog post for that as well, but a user emailed me with a great idea that I wish I'd thought of. (I'll withhold his name in respect for his privacy) He suggested that I have buttons on the "By Size" tab for common disc sizes such as 650 MB for a CD. It was such a simple but useful idea that I decided what the hey, I'll just do it now. So for those of you who use Folder Axe to split things for burning onto CD's and DVD's, this feature is for you! Thanks again to the user who suggested this, I always love hearing about ideas for new features. Enjoy the new features in Folder Axe 3.x!
Alright, time for the next major update to Folder Axe, Folder Axe version 3.0! I've added two new ways to split files. The first is called "By File Type", and it's pretty simple, Folder Axe splits files into folders based on their file extensions. (".jpg", ".mp3", or ".wmv" for example) The second new split type is "By File Group". Now don't get confused, this is different. Splitting files by file group places them into one of seven different groups, like Audio files, Video file, and so forth. I have a better explanation available for you on the File Groups page. As per usual, I always love hearing from my users, feel free to comment in the blog or send me a message using the Contact Me form. I hope you all enjoy this release!
If anyone has tried to use the "Like" button and had a "Confirm" button pop up, I need you to go ahead and click that too. It might tell you an error occurred, but do it anyways. The error is due to the "Confirm" part of the button. Facebook's "brilliant" coders have developed an algorithm that causes the confirm button to appear until enough users have hit the Like button for the algorithm to consider my site as "clean". I have no idea how it works, I just know that the more users click on the Like button, the closer ti gets to removing the confirm thing and thus fixing the problem. I think this is a silly algorithm personally, but it's out of my hands.
