We have covered a lot of applications that allow you to perform different tasks on files. For example, if you look through the database of AddictiveTips, you will find a lot of Search utilities, software to rename files in a batch operation, tools to compare two or more files and folders, delete empty folders from your hard drive etc. Having a separate tool for each different function creates a lot of clutter in your system. Having so many programs can even slow down your PC. Today, we have an application for Windows that allows you to perform multiple operations on files, all from a unified interface. FileProcessor is an application that searches for files based on user-defined preferences, and lets you perform a variety of tasks on them. It lets you perform actions such as delete, compare, rename, copy, run, print etc, on the search results. You can perform batch actions, save search lists, load them and print search results from within the application. The application lets you search your hard disk with Size, Time and Period filters, and provides a number of predefined file type filters such as BMP, EXE, PDF, TXT, HTML, RES, DLL, SQL etc.
To start searching, first select a Starting Directory. Choose the Size, Time and Period Filters from the top left, and File Type Filters from the top right of the interface. Click Search & Add button to start searching for your desired results. The Search & Remove option lets you remove particular types of items from the search results; just select the filters and click Search & Remove to delete items.
Click the Actions tab on the left to perform different actions on your search results. You can Delete, Compare, Rename, Copy, Run, Find Unused, Print, Set Properties and view Statistics of the files in your search results. You can also Search & Replace text in all the files simultaneously.
Click Prefs button on the left to access the preferences panel of FileProcessor. You can set Functional Preferences such as Overwrite read-only Files, Keep original file date and Create Backup before Saving Changes, User Interface options such as Minimize on Action Startup, Maximize on Action Finished and Color settings like Lists Color, Application Color, Menu bars Color etc.
FileProcessor works on both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8.
