Editors' reviewAlthough this application is supposed to make transferring, copying, and archiving files a hands-off process, its inflexibility and lack of guidance will frustrate most users. Universal File Utility's busy interface shows a list of four preset actions for moving and copying files and controls to navigate and modify records, but it doesn't include a help file to explain these actions or guide users in creating their own. Despite that flaw, the process is fairly simple to begin. On the downside, the program isn't flexible enough with its limited options. If you choose any of the three options to move files, the original files are automatically deleted, even when moved them to a daily archive. Another issue is the Time of Scan feature, which only allows you to schedule scan frequency in seconds, making it overly complicated to schedule a once-daily scan. Novices won't like this application's do-it-yourself approach, and more advanced users won't be impressed with its limited capabilities, especially with the easy availability of more flexible programs for managing files.
