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.
Those who will not reason are bigots, those who cannot are fools and those who dare not are slaves.
