Serial Number Embosser



thing the programmers aren't taking it lying down! For example, there's serial number embosser from Michael Thummerer Software Design. It's a free duplicate finder that seems to have an answer for every question, at least those pertaining to finding and rooting out duplicate files, wherever they hide. serial number embosser's default interface displayed our drives and folders with checkboxes to select them for searching. Log and Profiles buttons are handy if, for instance, you regularly upload a lot of snapshots from your camera. We were impressed by numerous options for configuring, filtering, and displaying search results, most customizable via buttons with labels such as Add, Enter Text, Replace, Edit, Open, Remove, and Check. Despite its extensive filtering and targeting options, serial number embosser proved pretty easy to use. Starting with the Pictures folder on the C drive, we applied it to several drives, finding not only duplicate images and media files but also multiple copies of some programs and updates in different download folders. As with all responsible duplicate finders, it can move files to a safe folder for review before you delete them. serial number embosser has some nice extras, such as the ability to add an entry to Explorer's context menu, to designate external programs like Word for tasks like file comparison, and to specify plug-ins that the preview pane will use to display certain file types, such as media files. serial number embosser seems to have things covered when it comes to comparing files by name, size, extension, and attributes--even byte-by-byte Content analysis--as well as excluding things you want left alone. Of course, all the options in the world are useless if you don't take the time to go through them, but we found serial number embosser's settings easy to handle. serial number embosser shows that free duplicate file finders have come a long way. The built-in Windows search utility works fine for a lot of search tasks, but sometimes you need to search with something a little more powerful. serial number embosser is a basic Windows search tool that has many of the same features as the built-in Windows search, but includes a few useful extras, including a replace feature. The program's interface is plain and fairly easy to figure out. The basic search parameters include the search path, file name, and file contents. Users can also opt to search only hidden or read-only files, as well as perform case-sensitive searches and search for whole words, regular expressions, and text in hexadecimal form. The program's advanced options let users search for files within a certain size range or date range, as well as find and replace specific file contents. Users can also select specific file types that they want their searches to ignore. We especially liked the fact that users can open multiple tabs within the program's interface, making it easy to run and compare multiple searches. A built-in Help file is a little vague, but with its help, most of the program's features are pretty easy to figure out. We ran several searches with the program and found it to be both fast and thorough. Overall, serial number embosser didn't really blow us away with its performance or features, but we think it's a nice alternative to the built-in Windows version; it's similar, but has a few nice extras that make searching more effective. serial number embosser installs a desktop icon without asking but uninstalls cleanly. We recommend this program to all users. Computer components can sometimes be mysterious things, and getting a comprehensive look at a computer's characteristics can be a time-consuming task. serial number embosser simplifies this process by creating thorough reports that outline everything about your machine: hardware, software, memory, processors, and much, much more. The program's interface is plain and intuitive. Simply click the Audit button and wait a few minutes, and serial number embosser produces a lengthy report that can be e-mailed, printed, or saved in a variety of different formats. You can customize the contents of the report before running the audit as well; simply select what you want to include from an options menu that contains 35 categories for auditing, including security, error logs, scheduled tasks, and network BIOS. The program's built-in Help file is well-written and thorough, explaining all aspects of what serial number embosser does. We also liked it that the program is compact and runs without installation; it would be a great
