Editors' Review

+

A useful sidekick for some tedious tasks, FileMonkey offers a mostly strong feature set. This all-in-one file tool helps streamline monotonous operations, such as batch renaming, duplicate detection, and search and replace.

FileMonkey also offers a solid file splitter as well as a tool for merging files, even those that have been chopped up using a third-party program. The encryption tool locks down files using 128-bit security, and though the file shredder lets you overwrite data using one or three passes, it still won't let you choose from mulitple secure algorithms.

The interface is simple enough to understand and can be skinned using preset color schemes or one defined by the user. Advanced users are the most likely to find FileMonkey worth a download, though a wide range of folks will probably appreciate its versatility.

"Authorization code hasn't been provided despite payment"

July 27, 2011  |  By schaafgregg

 |  Version: FileMonkey 10.87

Pros

Unknown - the vendor hasn't provided the authorization necessary for me to use the product.

Cons

Product not provided in a timely manner.

Summary

The free trial version doesn't do batch file conversion but only converts two files at a time from one format to another, in my case from .wpd to .rtf . The software can be purchased for $29 or is supposedly free if the customer accepts the "TrialPay" offer, i.e. buys a product from an affiliated vendor which I did. However, I was not then provided with the authorization code necessary to activate the software. Instead I got communications like the ones reproduced below indicating that I would get the code sometime in the next day and/or that it might take a couple of days for someone to get back to me. Why can't a software vendor automate the process of providing the product to a customer that has paid for the product? CAVEAT EMPTOR

"Works OK, but not pretty, and a bit confusing."

January 10, 2008  |  By chris randall

 |  Version: FileMonkey 10.56

Pros

It seems to be able to perform as claimed

Cons

The interface looks like one of the old DOS file managers, not really like a current style of Windows program. It takes some effort to figure out how to make it do what you want it to. 30-day trial period... but I uninstalled it the same day.

"WHOA!!"

September 28, 2005  |  By maxfaction

 |  Version: FileMonkey 9.76

Pros

This is my little monster in a box. Smaller than a mouse, but Stronger than the Hulk. This thing is freaking awesome, it cut soooooo much time out of a tidious operation of renaming folders. & That's something that I've had trouble finding in any program. Then when you think you've found it, it simply doesn't work the way they said it would. 5 THUMBS UP!!! This program is good, it's better than great

Cons

It's not to prettiest, but who really cares, as long as if freak'n works!!! It work VERY WELL!!

"Lots of tools with clunky UI"

March 02, 2005  |  By ScottSF

 |  Version: FileMonkey 9.60

Pros

FileMonkey has lots of useful tools for working with files. Everything seemed to work as advertised.

Cons

The user interface was difficult to grasp in my opinion. I know that's subjective, but I found that it was hard to navigate through the program.

"Outstanding Product with Incredible Customer Service..."

April 09, 2004

 |  Version: FileMonkey 9.09

Summary

I purchased this product to manage some simple data projects at home. It has turned into the software equivalent of a my swiss army knife --- I use it for everyting from moving log files, to buidling indexes, to creating load files for the DB I use to track attendance and giving at our church. The customer service --- that is writing of scripts and even an extended functionality in response to my needs has really exceeded my expectations. I think this product and the folks that are standing behind it are outstanding. I highly recommend it.
