DoubleDesktop v2.0 [204k] 9x/2k FREE If you have a ton of links and applications stored on your desktop, maybe it's time to double the size. But won't you have to get a bigger monitor? No, sir. No, madam. This application lets you toggle between the right and left side of your "larger" desktop with the click of a button.
DoubleKiller If you have a partitioned hard drive, you may be wasting precious disk space harboring the same files in different areas. DoubleKiller hunts across single or multiple partitions and folders for identical files. It skips over files with important extensions like .dll, but it scans other files for duplicates. It checks the files' names, sizes, dates, and CRC32-checksums to see if any of them mirror one another. Once DoubleKiller locates the duplicates, it shows you a list of all of them so you can decide which to keep and which to delete or move.

You can change the color, size and tranparency of the pen tool. This allows you to write comments one second and highlight information the next second.

DrawSWF v1.2.7 [633k] W9x/2k/XP FREE http://drawswf.sourceforge.net/

{Drawing program} After loading the program and writing my name, I clicked Play and it animated the sequence as I drew it. That's all it took to create my first animated drawing in DrawSWF. It's a simple interface with basic tools for drawing lines, entering text, selecting line thickness, drawing a shape, or selecting a pen for free drawing. Every move you make is the order in which the animation will be presented unless you rearrange it in the drawing objects dialog box. Click on the Play button to preview your work in progress. When you complete your work of art, export it as a Flash file and select the speed of the animation. The file is saved as a SWF file, which is a Flash file. You can try before you download, since the application is available online (using Java) by clicking on Web Start on the Web site. It's a simple tool for those who want to try animating drawings without paying the price for a more complex and overwhelming product. Whoo whee, look at my stick figure bike come to life!

DriveImage XML DriveImage XML - Image and Backup logical Drives and Partitions

DriveImage XML is an easy to use and reliable program for imaging and backing up partitions and logical drives.

The program allows you to:

  • Backup logical drives and partitions to image files 
  • Browse these images, view and extract files 
  • Restore these images to the same or a different drive 
  • Copy directly from drive to drive 
  • Schedule automatic backups with your Task Scheduler

Image creation uses Microsoft's Volume Shadow Services (VSS), allowing you to create safe "hot images" even from drives currently in use.

Images are stored in XML files, allowing you to process them with 3rd party tools. Never again be stuck with a useless backup!

Restore images to drives without having to reboot.

DriveImage XML runs under Windows XP Home, XP Professional and Windows Server 2003 only. The program will backup, image and restore drives formatted with FAT 12, 16, 32 and NTFS.

You can run DriveImage XML from a WinPE boot CD-Rom.

DVD Encrypter v3.1.4.0 [583k] W9x/2k/XP FREE http://www.dvddecrypter.com/

{DVD ripper} DVD Decrypter is a free tool that enables you to decrypt and copy a DVD to your PC's hard drive. Advanced functionality can be found in the context menus. (Get the context menu by right-clicking the mouse button.) Context menus are (currently) available in three places within DVD Decrypter. By default, the program will - where possible - automatically select the source (for example, the DVD drive) and the destination folder (by finding the drive with the most free disk space). The 'Main Movie' files will have already been selected for you. In about 10- 30 minutes (depending on the speed of your computer / DVD drive), it will finish, and you will have DeCSSed VOB files on your hard drive. You can choose to watch them with PowerDVD and WinDVD or you can re-encode them to MPEG1 (VCD) or DivX. DVD Decrypter keeps a log of everything it does.

FreeDOS v082pl1 [460k] Kernel v2.0.29 [153k] Windows FREE http://freedos.sourceforge.net/

{DOS-compatible OS} This page is home of the FreeDOS Project, where FreeDOS aims to be a complete, free, 100% MS-DOS compatible operating system. Anyone who needs to bundle a version of DOS without having to pay a royalty for the use of DOS can use FreeDOS to do so. It works on old hardware, in DOS emulators, and in embedded systems. Use FreeDOS to develop your own operating system. FreeCOM is a command line interface, user shell, and COMMAND.COM replacement for DOS. The purpose of FreeCOM is to prompt the user to enter commands, which are interpreted and processed directly by FreeCOM, or executed as executable files. (Note: No specific Windows compatibility information was indicated.)

File Commander v1.1 [984k] W98/2k/XP FREE http://www.cinnamonsoftware.com/file_commander.htm

{Organize files} File Commander can help with moving, copying, or deleting the files. Occasionally, I back up my e-mailbox stuff (e-mail addresses, saved e-mails, sent e-mails, etc.). Using File Commander's wizard, I created a command to copy these files into my backup directory. Whenever I need to run it, I just click on the command and it takes care of itself. Think about the file management tasks you do often, and consider creating an automated process for them and save time. This requires having Windows installer on your system, which can be downloaded for free.

Filehand Search v2.0 Filehand Search v2.0
It always struck me as quite ironic that I can search the Internet faster than my own hard drive, and that the results of a Google search are always so much easier to understand, as opposed to a huge list of filenames that I need to sort through.

I first came across Filehand quite some time ago, and have been using it myself more or less on a daily basis.

The good news is that there's a new version of Filehand. The really good news is that it's now completely free!

Filehand Search 2.0 is a great tool for bringing the power of Internet-style searching to your own computer.

Using Filehand Search you can find information stored in your computer system with the same ease and speed that you find information on the Internet using search engine sites such as Google and Yahoo!.

If you've tried other programs to find files on your computer, you were probably disappointed by the performance, lack of flexibility, and complicated interfaces. Worse still, many of them consume all of the processor and memory resources of your computer, and can slow it down to a crawl. Not good.

Not so with Filehand Search.

Aside from filenames, the software can also search the contents of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, WordPerfect, PDF, HTML, and simple text files.

The new version can also handle Outlook items, including e-mail, contacts, notes, and appointments.

And did I mention that fact that it's free?

This is one of those applications that I guarantee you want on your system. Further details are available from the Filehand Web site. 665KB Download Size

File Splitter File Splitter


Another File Splitter program. However, this one is different in the fact that it's free(!) and that it includes all the features that most others leave out. You can split files to any size you wish. Restoring is simply a matter of running the restore (BAT) file created when the file is split, or, for total control, you can restore using the File Splitter program. Integrated with Windows Explorer to allow even more flexibility. Full install/uninstall support. screenshot version history reviews and awards

FreeMem You know that each application you run uses up system memory. But you may not know that even when you close an application you don't always get all your memory back. This handy utility remedies that situation by not only monitoring your RAM but by freeing up memory that was previously in use. An icon resides on your taskbar with a green, yellow, and red indicator showing your current memory condition as well as your available memory. From that icon you can access a small menu that allows you to free up any amount of RAM you wish. You can also schedule "emergency free-ups" to make sure you always have enough RAM. download Now
FOLDOC Offline Browser v1.0 [2.0M] W9x/2k/XP FREE FOLDOC stands for the Free On-line Dictionary of Computing and this
application is just an offline browsible version of this on-line
dictionary. Just like a regular dictionary, FOLDOC covers a wide
variety of computer and telecom categories such as tools,
architecture, operating systems, networking, theory, conventions,
standards, mathematics, electronics, institutions, companies,
projects, products, history plus just about anything you can think of
that is related to computers. You don't have to just be a computer
geek to use FOLDOC, just think of it as your Rosetta Stone to
understanding computers and their technicians. With this program there
should be no excuse to be conned into an unnecessary computer repair
just because the technician spouted off some intelligent sounding

USDA Nutrient Database for Standard Reference. With Food Composition
you just pick a food and then check out any of the 33 different food
item components/nutrients. This application even has a pie chart that
shows you the percentage of carbohydrates, proteins and fats that make
up the Calories in a food. From the look of things, I guess I won't be

Fx Icon Maker v4.5.6 [3.6M] W98/2k/XP FREE http://www.jhepple.com/iconmkr.htm

{Create icons} Create 32x32 icons for use as an icon. I tried my hand at creating one like the famous Lockgernome icon, but my attempts were that of a B student in art. The menu is straightforward and the help file identifies what each menu item does. While you work on the icon, you can see a preview of how it looks without the grid. It took five minutes to create and save my first icon, but I'm not going to share this embarrassing piece of work. No Gnomies were harmed in the creation of this sloppy icon. If you can't get the help file by clicking F1, click Start | Programs | FX Icon32 | Help to get it.
