Preferred Solution: How to search bulk of user names in bulk of flat files easily?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi Everyone,

i have been looking for weeks for a way to do this and i have tried so many applications but i just cant seem to get it right, i was hoping that you guys my be able to help me out here with this one..

i have two folders, at the moment with identical file names in the ( they are images names are the same but one is a before and one an after ) and i need to move them into a third folder but create a file based on the image name and then a sub file for them image from folder one called ALT_1 and for the after shot subfolder but separate folder ALT_2

so the two inputs would be for each image

output folder would be
\Desktop\DNA-FINAL\a01052\ALT_1\a01052.jpg (raw shot)
\Desktop\DNA-FINAL\a01052\ALT_2\a01052.jpg (after shot)

ive never done any programing before and im really stuck on how to sort these two out .. any help anyone can give would be really appreciated, or even if you can point me in the direction of an application that i can use for this one that would be awesome

oh yeah BTW i am running win 7 64 bit..

thanks so much in advance

Answer:BULK creating of folders based on file names, and then moving files in

Hi JP and welcome to SevenForums!

I'm sure I or someone else here can create a batch file for you for this. Some questions:

We basically only need to loop through all files in the DNA-RAW folder, assuming that DNA-AFTER holds the same file names?
Is it all files or only jpg?
And the files should be moved, not copied.

I have a file of hundreds of image files. Many are named like this:



However, many are INCORRECTLY named like this:


You can see, the 'ABC' part has been lowercased.

Is there any way to BULK find/replace 'abc' with 'ABC' in the file name?

Answer:Bulk FIND & REPLACE with UPPERCASE of file names...

There are batch renamers, but I'm very unfamiliar with them. I use xnview, which is a freeware image browser, and it has the capability of changing only the case of files.
Say all the files are in a folder. You can right-click the folder and pick browse with xnview. Then click ctrl-A to select all the files in it. Then right-click and pick batch rename.Then make sure all the boxes are unchecked except "case". And in the drop-down menu pick "name uppercase" or "name and extension uppercase". If you need to set all names to uppercase and all extensions to lowercase (and it happens to be a mix of both), do it in two passes.

Hi, I have a large number of folders. I would like to search through them and replace some long names that appear in these folders as they cause the path to become too long.For instance, they all have, in part, the path Appdata\Local\Microsoft\Outlook. If I could search and replace that with, e.g., A\L\M\O that would save me 25 characters!Thanks for any thoughts on this.

Question: Bulk Search


I have Vista Ultimate.

I need to find about 60 files on my PC, the file names are listed on a word
document, and the actual files are stored in many different folders on my

I need to consolidate the files into one folder.

Is there some way I can do a bulk search using "search" where I load the
file names and Vista finds them and shows where they are located.

please advise



Answer:Bulk Search

I'm pretty sure that you would have to input each file name manually and then Cut/Paste to the destination folder. The search function doesn't support searching for multiple different files at the same time.

I've moved some files from my old PC to a new one, and find that the UAC entries need to be modified on the new PC.
Are there any software or utilities which can make the changes easier?
( I don't want to make the change file-by-file, as quite a nr of files are involved and each file's UAC change involve quite a number of keystokes)


Answer:Can User Access Control Entries be modified in bulk?

Create a backup HDD image, BEFORE modifying your permissions.

You can set the permissions on the highest directory level and force them to propagate down the directory structure.
(see example pictures below).
You could write a batch file or script which contains the "icacls" command.
I've never had much luck using it myself though.

Yes, but you'll have to use PowerShell to do it. Open PowerShell in the folder containing the files to be renamed (or open a command prompt then type powershell). The command to use in powershell is:

get-childitem *%*.* | foreach { rename-item $_ $_.Name.Replace("%", "_") }

For this little project, I have many folders with many files in each folder.

I have a individual lists of what the files names should be for each folder.

It's not as simple as adding, removing, or replacing characters as there is no pattern.

What I need is a script that will take all the names from file.txt and rename all the files in folder1, etc, according to the list.

The file names in the list each start with a number and so do the files in the folders, those numbers match and that's how they should reference each other.

I am open to batch, bash, etc, anything that works.

Hi all,

I have a 1TB external HDD attached to my laptop.
Whenever I attempt to copy multiple files to another HDD I am confronted with a BSOD.

Can anyone read the dumpfile and see what my issue is, please?



Answer:BSOD copying bulk files from ext. HDD

Not absolutely definitive, but it does blame the FNet Turbo HDD USB driver, which is very old (2008). Either this is a driver that came with the HDD, or it's a driver that came with your motherboard.

I checked your BIOS Vendor, and I take it Compal is Compaq for your area? If this is an OEM computer (most likely), you will want to go to their website and update all your drivers there, starting with your motherboard, chipset, and/or cpu drivers.

I used to see file editors back in the early days and never was able to handle them due to arcane
help files, TMI and other problems associated with pedantry in lingo.

Soon I will need to edit my HD of duplicates and no longer- needed items.

Please don't mention the "ability" to hold down the control key and make a box and delete what's inside.

No, what I need is something along the line of a wildcard delete such as delete myfile*.*

Is there anything like that in Win7 freeware? Something with a bit more control than
a screen full of highlighted things or the opposite: clicking each and every item, delete and confirm?

Answer:A file editing routine in Win7 or a program to deal with bulk files

Your title says "file editing". Your text refers to deleting.

Are you talking about identifying duplicate files and deleting the duplicates, so that you have only 1 version?

Are you referring only to files that have the same exact name, regardless of content? Or do you mean files with the same content, regardless of name?

Text files? Pictures? What file extensions generally?

You can do a lot from the command line using switches and wild cards.

There are good duplicate file finder applications. And the "Everything" search engine is great for finding files with identical names.

I recently had a hard drive failure that cost me fifteen years worth of files and data. I am recovering the files currently using Puran file recovery, which seems to be working. However, all the MS Word files (for instance) I recover are simply named "0000001.docx" and the associated file creation date (listed in Details View) is the time Puran recovered the file. I now have a pile of 10,000 .docx files and I need to find the most recent version of ONE document.
If I r-click each one, it tells me when the file was actually created by the user, e.g. 9/1/2015 instead of toady's date 30 minutes ago. Is there anyway to bulk rename all these files be extracting their actual "last saved on" dates in their "properties" information and using that as the file name?

Hey gang. at work, our logistics officer keeps receiving hundreds of emails daily from headlines.

these appear to be actual news headlines, but nothing that he has subscribed to. i have entered our hosting site for emails and requested that ANYTHING from is blocked. he also went to unsubscribe to these emails ont he msnbc website and they said that he wasn't part of their mailing list.

so how are these coming in and how do i stop them? are the emails getting routed through another email address? any info would be great. thanks in advance.

Answer:receiving bulk emails

Dear TyStone72,
If you are using an Internet Security Suite, like KIS2009,you may mark the unwanted mail in the e-mail site as "spam" . Before that, it would be informative if the msnbc mail is "spam"in your mail and what e-mail program is being used?

Hi everyone,

A friend of mine was asking how he can purchase over 30 copies of Windows 7. I'd love to point him to my local retailer but they don't offer discounts for bulk purchases.

I checked eBay out but those stories of sellers selling fake copies is not comforting at all.

Does anyone know where my friend can safely purchase legitimate copies?


Answer:Windows 7 Bulk Purchase

Hi there
A legal way to do this is with a VOLUME LICENSE (or VL) system. Contact Ms as they will STILL supply W7 via this route.

Large corporations do this and so they image a Windows system and deploy it on to their company computers without every one of them needing a separate key etc.

If you were buying 30 copies of Windows this would also be far cheaper than 30 RETAIL copies too.

(A trip to some outlets in the seedier parts of Shanghai might get you what you want - but I'd be a bit dubious as to the Source of the copies though).

Buying in volume by "non standard" outlets will only lead to grief in the end. You CAN use legitimate "Used copies" provided the originals are RETAIL (not OEM) and they have been wiped from the previous users machines - but I wouldn't go down that route for Bulk copies. For a single copy - nothing wrong with that if you can find a person who has upgraded to W8 and no longer needs their copy of W7.

Need to bring over a library size of favorites from ie. into FF.

I have / can import favorites from i.e. but FF dumps them into a 'from i.e. folder'.

How do I get them to appear as folders & individual links in the 'drop-down bookmarks' menu instead of that extra step where they are all gathered 'first' into a newly created folder called "from internet explorer"??

Answer:Importing bulk favorites from I.E. to F.F.

im not sure how to do the imports as i dont use IE, however there is a good workaround that will back up all your favs and import also.

install xmarks and set up an account free, and when you install xmarks in firefox and ie they will sync. so
first install xmarks for ie, then when the favs have synced then install xmarks for firefox ,when you sign into xmarks in ff the favs will sync to ff.

and you have the added security of knowing that they are backed up on the cloud. also you can log into the xmarks site from a different computer anywhere and still access your favs.

Download Xmarks for Internet Explorer

The USB spec calls for a bulk capacitor of no less than 120uF on each downstream port. I have a total of 7 ports on my USB Hub, 6 of them are connectors where you can attach USB devices, however there is one internal device: FTDI's FT232R VCOM IC. This device is always attached and I'm wondering if I still need the bulk capacitance.

Based on what I've read of USB design guidelines the bulk capacitance is there for when you attach a device you don't cause too much droop on other ports.

Any advice?

How do you change multiple groups of numbers across multiple files.

For ex; I imported 52 worksheets into excel and lets just say each sheet has about 1000 rows with 20 columns. Half of the sheets are full of index numbers and the other half are full of items that reference those numbers.

I need to change about 2000 numbers globally across each of the worksheets like this

5102 --> 25102
5103 --> 25103
5104 --> 25104

With ASAP utilities I can change the numbers globally across each sheet, but as far as I can tell I've only found the option to do it one number a time. If I create a dictionary of what all the number should be changed to, is there a way to batch change them all? With any kind of script or software it doesn't matter.

Answer:Bulk change numbers?

Just to name a few options...

- You can write a VBA macro in Excel.

- If you're more comfortable in another language and have a small amount of SQL knowledge, then you can execute SQL statements against an Excel file. The parsing logic would be written in whatever language you are comfortable with, and you'd just use an ODBC library to connect to the file.

- There are external connector libraries that can (more natively) work with the Excel file; POI and NPOI come to mind.

- The Office Interop libraries can be used. Though this does rely on the machine running the application to have the same version of Office installed for the interops to work.

BTW, I did search your site for info. before posting. What caught my attention was a similar query from someone in Canada. Last Wednesday I sent 7 emails, each to individual recipients in various countries. One, to Canada, was received with [Bulk] prefixed to the header -- which I only discovered when she responded.

I've checked with the other 6 correspondents: their emails did not have [Bulk] in the header.

Since then, paranoia has set in. I've repeatedly updated/run my current security programs (AVG, with Spybot as double-check). The firewall is ZoneAlarm. I've now installed rootkit checkers. I've also used on-line virus/malware checkers (Kaspersky, Panda and McAfee). Apparently, my system is clean. However, until I get to the root of this, I'm afraid to buy or bank on-line.

My Canadian correspondent has emailed to say that she sometimes receives emails with [Bulk] in the header, even though she knows that they were individual missives. Co-incidentally, there were 6 emails in the Spam box, albeit none from Canada, all dated yesterday, when I logged onto my AOL email today. (I rarely find anything in the Spam box.)

Something must be wrong somewhere! Is it at my end? Or is it at the Canadian end (their ISP/email account is rogers)? Help!!!

I just can't get it to send out the bulk email. Actually all I'm trying to do is get it to send a test message. I've gone over and over the settings until I can't stand to look at them any more.

The owners of the software tell me the the test message is going out and that my spam filters are not letting it through. But I've disabled my spam filters, and the message still does not come through.

I've done all the normal things, like disabled my firewall and antivirus, etc, etc. I doubled checked my security internet settings. I wish someone could call me and walk me through this. I really need to solve this and go to bed and get some sleep. I haven't sleep in about 3 days.

An unknown family member used my PC for several days while I was away and I returned home to do work online and got a browser redirect to a message from my ISP stating that bulk mailing/virus activity has been noticed coming from my machine. My internet access is suspended until the problem is resolved. I called the ISP to confirm just in case it was another trojan redirect/browser hi-jacker, etc. I was given a list of utilities to scan my PC with and I followed through with all and then some! I have scanned and cleaned the PC with F-stop, Panda, HouseCall, BitDefender, ZoneAlarm, Spybot, AdAware, Windows Defender, The Stinger, Various McAfee utilities and about a dozen other utilities. They all found various malware/spyware/viruses/bad files etc. and removed them. I monitored all connections in and out and noticed a bunch of sends on port 25. I killed nearly all my running processes and I then enabled ZoneAlarm firewall and right away, it gave alerts and began blocking something from sending out email messages every few seconds with no end in sight. It's also blocking all sorts of incoming connections every couple of seconds. I'm sure this is preventing the emails from being sent out and blocking out intruders but whatever is causing this emailing problem is still on the machine.

I am looking to purchase some bulk Cat6 Ethernet cable. I did a search in this forum and found some good links but I wanted to ask a few other questions. I guess I am wondering what to look for in some good cabling.

1. What wire size should I look for? 24AWG seems to be standard. Any reason for bigger or smaller?

2. There is no need for us home users to get plenum is there? PVC will be ok right?

3. I see some cable labled "stranded" and some cable labled "solid"? What is the difference? Just the composition of the accuall copper wire? Stranded is more flexible im guessing?

4. Is there a big differnece between the advertised speeds? i see 500Mhz, 550Mhz and 600Mhz? Any real differences?

5. Any good brands of cable I should look for? Is Coleman cable good? Mostly I just want a fast( for GigE ), flexible cable.

Thanks in advance.

Answer:Ethernet Bulk Cabling

I'm in for a couple answers. You shouldn't need plenum-rated cable for home use unless you will be running the cable through air passages. But I doubt you will be doing that so you don't need the plenum cable. Stranded cable is typically used for patch cables since they generally need to be flexible and will be moved around a lot. Runs in the walls, though, are generally solid since it's not going anywhere.

In recent months, they have noticed a higher percentage of bounced and/or simply not rec'd emails. I am one of those who has not been receiving the newsletter at neither my home or work address. I know ISPs have incorporated a lot of controls to limit spam over the past year. Is there something my friend needs to do differently now?

My question is simple - but I haven't found, so far, any answer I can understand on the web.

How do I download all my emails off yahoo (that's inbox drafts and folders) onto my own computer - is this possible?

The background to this is that I'm a heavy email user. I have 10 years of emails on my account. This is personal and business. There's an awful lot of emails, though it doesn't amount to much in space terms because it's virtually all text.

I keep everything on email. I'm worried primarily about my stuff being removed accidentally or maliciously, so I want to back up locally. After all yahoo could suddenly announce that they're going to remove all emails older than a certain date - this would be an utter disaster for me. In adition, because I have so many individual emails (I receive at least 30 a day, keep most of them, and send off about 10 - keep all of them) yahoo email search no longer works on my account.
