File control

Manage, copy, and arrange files with this application.

Take control of your files with FileBoss. If you need a more robust tool for managing files than the one that came with your operating system, FileBoss has you covered. You can easily search, copy, rename, explore, back up, and organize your files with this multifeatured application. It lets you search for files by name, extension, type, size, and more. You can rename individual or multiple files. You can also use FileBoss to change or delete spaces in file names. FileBoss can display your computer's overall contents, delete duplicate files, and organize your folders. It also copies files from CDs and DVDs, which can help if you're migrating data from one PC to another.

At first glance, FileBoss' interface is similar to Windows Explorer. If you're not accustomed to using a program like this, it may not be clear what FileBoss does when you open it for the first time. The comprehensive Help file explains FileBoss' capabilities, though, as well as how to use its many features. We had to make a thorough study of the Help file, but eventually we were able to use FileBoss with no problems. The program's most useful features may be the ability to back up and copy data and its robust Find tool.

This is a 30-day trial version of the software. It installs and uninstalls with no problems. If you're searching for a better way to manage large amounts of files and want more control over file structure and arrangement, FileBoss is a worthwhile solution.
