Re: Oh, it does find/ search within doc and xls files

or, maybe some learned user can tell about some other easy effective free software which are able to search within doc docx xls xlsx files, so that I wouldn't need convertor option of fc.

Thanks.

Re: Oh, it does find/ search within doc and xls files

thanks. I could download and install it, but it didn't run because convertor option is just not appearing in my non-donor version. :-( I think this ability to search within the content of the files is very much required, even for non-donors. There is no other effective software also, which we can in...

Thanks.

Re: "Auto rename target file" ticking doesn't stick nor foll

my bad, but I couldn't figure out "Change to third tab"

which third tab? where? in main fc window or after opening settings? in some branch? where exactly?

Thanks.

Re: Oh, it does find/ search within doc and xls files

And I was under the impression that donor version and free user versions are exactly same and have all features, it is just that donors are given more versions early.

how naive of me.

Thanks.

Oh, it does find/ search within doc and xls files

After years of using fc, and simultaneously, years of searching for method to be able to search within content of MS Word and MS Excel files, (no effective software found), yesterday, I got the pleasant surprise (amazement) that fc itself is fully capable of searching some text withing .doc and .xls...

"Auto rename target file" ticking doesn't stick nor followed

To copy a file, when we use Shift F5 in a folder on selecting a file, a window opens that asks us the name of the new file we want. There is "Auto rename target file" option, but even if we tick it, it disappear when we copy next file there or anywhere. In the next window it is unticked again. At le...

Re: renaming to a name already existing name throws error

I don't think.

Previously I had teracopy, but that is not there any more. I think I am using only windows explorer with its defaults.

could you please mention suggest some names of such software so that I could find whether I have any of them on my box.

Thanks.

renaming to a name already existing name throws error

If we rename a file/ folder, and give a name which is already existing in that same folder, it is throwing error. 1 Interrupted Action Error 0x80070057: The parameter is incorrect. That is cryptic. Of course it can't rename to that, but it should tell in simpler words that "a file/ folder with this ...

Seeing this folder entry in ABOUT, I find dozens of folders named like FreeCommander2108 in my w7 folder C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Temp They are blank (have nothing in them) as many as I could see. What are they used for? And if their use is over after some particular run or task, why are th...
