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.
FileBoss can create up to a thousand copies of each selected item. If a selected item is a folder FileBoss will create up to one thousand copies of that folder and all its contents.
Making multiple copies of a file or folder is exactly the same as making one duplicate except that the Number of Copies field is set to the number of copies you want to make.
There will now be 250 folders each containing 4,000 files. One million total.
When FileBoss spins out more than one copy of a file or folder it will add a sequential number to each file according to a pattern you specify.
If you want specific, individual names for each one simply:
Select the newly created files
Use the Actions > Quick Rename... command from the main menu (or press Ctrl+Shift+R) to start renaming the files one by one (each filename will be displayed in a special small dialog).
When you duplicate files and folders a dialog will appear allowing you to specify how the duplicate files will be named. The choices you make here - just like almost all dialogs in FileBoss - will be saved even when FileBoss is closed.
Most significant for creating multiple copies is the Number of Copies field at the bottom of the dialog:
Specifies how many copies of the file / folder will be made. The maximum number of copies is 1,000. So if 1,000 items are selected and this is set to 1,000 then 1,000,000 items will be created! If one or more of the selected items are a folder many more than 1,000,000 items can be created.
When creating a large number of files (in excess of 500,000) always be aware that Windows might have problems creating such a large number of files and even handling so many files or folders in one directory after they have been created.
