    "Does not do a true merge."

    June 16, 2013  |   By pcug

    Version: Free File Merge 1.06

    Pros

    Small, fast, append. Very fast for what it does, which is to append a list of files, sequentially.

    Cons

    Must place files in the same directory (folder).

    Does NOT perform a true merge. Only appends multiple files, not merge similar files.
    A true merge will reject identical lines from multiple files and only copy from the file that contains that line. This program does NOT do that.

    Should be renamed "Free File Append".

    Does not tell you where to find the output file. (Mine was in /Temp)

    No help file.

    Summary

    Only appends. Does not merge files.

    "Merges files!"

    April 24, 2012  |   By LilPeck

    Version: Free File Merge 1.06

    Pros

    Fast, free, simple.

    Cons

    No complaints.

    Summary

    NO bells and whistles. Extremely simple. Free. Just be sure to place the files you want merged into a folder by themselves.

    "Freezes half way though."

    June 29, 2011  |   By c_programmer

    Version: Free File Merge 1.06

    Pros

    Small, simple and easy to use.

    Cons

    I've never successfully merged files on this, it freezes at half way and will not advance past there. On the task manager is is using no processor and very little memory.

    Summary

    If it worked this would be a great program, but it doesn't so I give it one star.

    "Great Software"

    February 14, 2010  |   By d_wildemann

    Version: Free File Merge 1.06

    Pros

    Merges files very rapidly. Using to merge over 1000 txt file to one large file.

    Cons

    None that I found.

    Summary

    This is great freeware.

    "Works great, needs simple instructions, else 5 stars."

    December 2, 2009  |   By olzab

    Version: Free File Merge 1.06

    Pros

    Joins files perfectly, once you figure it out.

    Cons

    1: No instructions, even at the website. 2: Could use a built-in file renaming utility to help correctly order files.

    Summary

    Works great, no need to install, just run the .exe. But, do these things first, before you merge: 1: Put all the files you want to join together into one folder, all by themselves. 2: Name the files so that computer naming conventions put them in the desired order. A batch file-renaming utility is very useful for this. Remember, file number "aa-9" comes *after* file "aa-8999" in computer order, so it needs to be named 0009, and so on. 3: Direct Free File Merge to the right folder. 4: Name your output file. 5. When you can't find your output file after File Merge seems to be done, look for it either in the same directory where the filemerge.exe lives, or on the desktop. Enjoy the result.

    January 11, 2009  |   By nachshonp

    "Can't handle large files well"

    February 27, 2008  |   By sam88jeep

    Version: Free File Merge 1.06

    Pros

    Simple GUI and it works

    Cons

    It stores the entire text file its working with in memory as it works, rather than working a little at a time. This resutls in a very slow merge for files that are large.

    "Merge it does. Fast, flawlessly"

    October 6, 2007  |   By Arash

    Version: Free File Merge 1.06

    Pros

    I did multiple text file merges on hundreds of small text files. It did them without a fuss

    Cons

    Though you can write the destination path, an additional Browse and Find button would make it even easier

    "Simple but effective"

    June 16, 2007  |   By swordchucks

    Version: Free File Merge 1.06

    Pros

    This software is very basic, but very effective at what it does. I've joined dozens of html files together using this software and it's saved me a number of headaches. I highly recommend this if you need something that'll slap together files without any bells and whistles.

    Cons

    Well, the software is basic. It's somewhat tricky figuring out how to get files to join in a certain order (it goes by alpha-numeric order, I think). It also lacks documentation.

    "Works like a charm"

    February 10, 2007  |   By husakm

    Version: Free File Merge 1.06

    Pros

    I wanted to merge a few thousand .csv files into one. I tried Free File Merge. It did the job perfectly. Very simple to use.
