Duplicate Cleaner will deep scan for all types of files – photos, music, films/video, Word documents, PowerPoint presentations, text files – you name it, if it appears twice on your computer then Duplicate Cleaner will find it. Once these files are found you are provided with helper tools to enable you to select which copies to delete or move.These files can be deleted to the recycle bin, moved into an archive elsewhere, or replaced with hardlinks.

CheckDiskGUI, a Graphical User Interface for the Windows CHKDSK utility

CheckDiskGUI

Do you want to check local disk drives for basic file structure, bad file records and other common disk errors in Windows? Unfortunately, the native check disk utility to scan drives for errors and issues is not user friendly. You can launch disk check utility from Windows Start Search or Run window by typing chkdsk, which runs in Command Line environment.

CheckDiskGUI is a simple Graphical User Interface (GUI) for Windows chkdsk utility which allows you to easily select drives, scan them, and analyze disk issues report.

It is similar to the fsck command in Unix operating systems that displays the file system integrity status for hard disks and floppy disk and can fix logical file system errors.

Just like Disk Check utility for Windows XP and earlier versions, it presents simple Fix and Fix and Recover options to deal with disk related issues. You can alternatively choose to only scan the disk without recovering data and performing other data loss fixes.

On the main interface, you can see all the local disk drives. You can scan multiple disks in on go or choose to scan only one disk drive at a time. From right side, choose the scan type, Read Only, Fix, or Fix and Repair to run the scanning process. It displays current disk scanning process which is being performed in Message box.

chkdisk 2

Underneath the bottom window, you can see total files which are to be scanned. If you’ve selected to only scan the drives, analyze scanning results to decide whether to apply fixes and perform recovery operation by clicking the respective option. During testing, we didn’t notice any problems while performing the disk scan, fix and recovery operations. It works on all versions of Windows.

Quick way to rename files or folder in serial order

Quick way to rename files or folder in serial order

This is a very nice tip with the help of which you can solve an annoying problem. Those of you who have the habit of downloading seasons or episodes of different animated series might have faced a problem to keeping the episodes under a name of similar format. Sometimes it happens that when we download different episodes from different sites then the names of all the episodes vary as per the sites from which they were downloaded and then you would have spent so much of time for allotting them a uniform pattern of the names but today I will be telling you about the solution of this problem and let me remind you that I will not bet using any freeware for this purpose.

It might happen that most of you might be knowing about it already, but for those who do know about it can have a look at it as it is the easiest possible solution. I will assume that all you have a fixed folder in which all the episodes with a random name are kept, now you will have to make sure that they are already aligned in a pattern, in other words I would say that all the episodes would be aligned sequentially inside the folder (as per the sequence of the series). Just follow the steps mentioned below and will be able to do it easily. (I have shown the example with the folders which are supposed to be renamed).

  • Select all the folders.

  • Then press Function key F2 or right click on any of the folder and then click Rename option. As shown in the snapshot below.

  • You will get something similar to the snapshot shown below.

  • Now edit the name of that particular folder and after you do so, you will all the folders or files renamed as per the snapshot shown below.

I think it was a smart way of solving our problem. But still you have got any better solution or suggestion then please do write it in the comments section, we will be glad to share it on your behalf and even if you face any problem while performing this tutorial then again you can do the same by putting it in the comments section, we might help you as we have already performed this tutorial.
