Help Please

 

I am looking for a program that will sort and find all the word/pdf docs on my system.

Due to multiple users over time the docs are wide spread and I should like to be able to generate a central file while retaining the originals.

 

Thank you for any help.

Hey ramford,  I can help you with the the finding part:

 

I would use a program called: “Everything”.   It is a windows file search engine, far faster and far more accurate than “Win Explorer” search.

It will only do one search at a time, so if you search on “*.pdf”, it will find and list all the pdf docs on your disc(s)/partitions.

You will then have to repeat the search for each of the formats that your doc creating programs use.  Slow but effective.

 

As for sorting, in “Everything”, if you right-click on a listed file, you have a menu all the usual explorer type options including:

“copy file”, “move file” and “delete file”

 

“Everything” can be found at:  http://www.voidtools.com/

Hope this helps.  Cool
