Update May 2017

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.


Exporting Folders &
Search Results

What is Exporting Search Results

Export Search Results DialogExports all the information in the contents window (the right-window), i.e. filenames, sizes, dates etc. The data is exported in the same order and in the same format as the columns on screen and in the same order.


The the entries are written to an ASCII text file either tab or comma delimited.

The contents of any tab can be exported no matter if it is the result of a search or a normal explore view.

Exporting a Directory Tree

To export a tree (more than one folder) first create a Virtual Folder by searching, e.g. use the Find > Files... command from the main menu. Then export the results of the search as described below.

Exporting the file information

Exporting is a simple process of selecting the entries to be exported, specify a few simple options and then let FileBoss do the work.

  • Select the files and folders you want to export in the List window (right-hand window)
  • Use the File > Export... command from the main menu.
  • Enter an output filename, select the appropriate options and click OK

Export Options

  • Automatically Overwrite Existing Output
    when checked FileBoss will not prompt you for a new name if the it already exists.
  • Only Include Selected Entries
    when checked only the selected entries will be written to the file. Otherwise all files in the contents view will be exported.
  • Include Path and Extension with File Names
    when checked the Name field in the report will include the full path and the extension. This overrides the setting for the Name column in the Contents field. If it is not checked just the name of each file, without the path, will be written to the report
  • Enclose each Field in Double Quotation Marks
    when checked each field (column) will be enclosed in quotation marks.
  • Tab Delimited or Comma Delimited
    determines whether tabs or commas will be separate each of the fields in the report.
