New version of Fast Empty Folder Finder out now!

A major update to the original Fast Empty Folder Finder, the new version 2 offers massive speed improvements and new ‘exclusion and ignore’ features. You can now also import and export your empty folder scan results as a project to resume later.

Fast Empty Folder Finder 2.0 can be downloaded at http://listeningpc.com/fast-empty-folder-finder.

Fast Empty Folder Finder (NEW Version 2.6.0.3)

Fast Empty Folder Finder will quickly find empty folders, show you a preview of its contents (for safety), and give you the option to delete those folders. A simple-to-use program that can save a load of time. The latest version includes a built in updater and now comes in a installer allowing you to create shortcuts in your start menu.

My Checklist

My Checklist (My.Checklist) allows you to maintain a list of items with completion status. Its simply a checklist of items that is saved automatically as you add items or change their completion status. The checklist file is created wherever you run the program (in the same folder).

Text File Joiner

Quickly join multiple text files with this small portable app. Optionally, you can now choose to separate each file with a space, or even append the name of the file the data is from.

Screenshot Backdrop

 

Quickly create a background for your screenshots out of a color or image. This little 30kb freeware app runs quickly, and requires no installation. I personally use this so screenshots of my apps dont require me changing my wallpaper.

Right click on the background, and you can quickly choose a image and its display mode, or a basic color.

Cluster Size Calculator

 

Calculate optimal disk cluster size with Cluster Size Calculator! Cluster Size Calc allows you to scan files and folders and compare their efficiency in a variety of [[data cluster]] sizes. This works great if you have a folder (and subfolders) of files that will be moved to a new drive. It will help you determine what cluster size to use on that HDD in order to use the least amount of clusters (indexes), and waste the least amount of space.

For many of us with collections of pictures, audio, and video, the commonly chosen cluster size (or even default) is not the prime cluster size. This utility helps you figure out what is right for you.

Calculates clusters sized from 512 bytes to 32 MB – the cluster sizes in FAT, NTFS, and exFAT.

This program is considered ‘portable’.  Just download it and run it, no installation is required. However the systems that run it will require at least 2.0 of the .NET Framework (if you have XP or Vista or 7 you likely have this).
