The BEST File Manager for Windows
Works with and greatly enhances:
Windows 11, 10
Windows 8, 7, Vista, XP
Servers 2003 and later
Starting at just $50 for home use and $69 for a business license (and a business two-pack for just $99!)
Major new tools, significant upgrades to current components and faster folder listings.
See the V4 preview here.
A May 2017 Microsft security update for Windows 10 conflicted with a major routine in FileBoss resulting in FileBoss not starting on some Windows 10 systems.
Versions V3.101 and later, fix the problem. You can read more about this at the page
Windows Creators Conflict.
This function allows loading a list of files and / or folders into a Virtual Folder where they can be managed just as if they were the results of a search, i.e. rename, delete and copy.
And you can specify options whether or not you want FileBoss to validate the existence of the files whether FileBoss should create a navigation structure (add folders) to the list.
Create a plain ASCII text file with one file to a line with its full path, e.g.
The entries can be in any order and folders need not be entered unless they are expressly needed.
Press Alt+F, D, I
Or select File > New Dynamic File Set > Import from Text File... from the main menu
Browse for the file you want to input using the 'Browse' button and then press the OK button. FileBoss will then read the text file and load each file into a Dynamic File Set.
If the Don't Validate Files box is checked FileBoss will check each entry for existence and if an entry in the text file can't be found FileBoss will display it in red. If there are many network entries that can't be found FileBoss will take quite sometime as checking for missing files on a network is very time consuming.
When the Create Navigation Structure box is checked FileBoss will attempt to create a file structure for the files. But if the imported files are pretty much at random, file structure wise, the structure FileBoss creates may be quite ugly..
Once the entries are loaded successfully you can manage them with all of FileBoss's tools just the same as in any other view.
