New release – Copywhiz 4.0.6

Hi!

Today we released Copywhiz 4.0.6. If you are already a registered user of Copywhiz 4 then you can download & install the update for free.

What is Copywhiz?

Enhance your file-copy experience with Copywhiz as it lets you to have more flexibility & more control over the file-copying process. Here is how Copywhiz makes file copying a breeze:

  • Copy only new or modified files
  • Easily pick files by name, extension, folder etc from bunch of folders
  • Automatically organize files based on file attributes and metadata
  • Copy files to multiple folders/computers
  • Copy files from multiple folders and paste them at once
  • Sync files between source and destination
  • Pick files from multiple folders and compress in single .zip file
  • Schedule file backups
  • Several more hidden nuggets designed to make your file-copy task easier.

Here is what we have done:

Improved ‘Paste only new or modified files’
The new update can now auto-detect new & modified files. When you choose the option ‘Paste only new or modified files,’ you don’t have to specify the modified/created dates (as in the previous versions). Copywhiz will determine these automatically and copy just the changed files. Backing up files becomes very easy with this new feature. The process of selecting dates was pretty tedious. Though, the option to copy files based on a specific date also exists.

Paste only new or modified files (Automatically detected)

Date variables in destination folder
You can use date variables such as %year%, %month%, %day%, %hour% & %minute% as part of destination folder address to dynamically create new destination folder each time. Good for taking backups.

Destination folder auto-filled
When using the ‘Paste Advanced’ option, the destination folder is auto-filled. You don’t have to select the destination folder separately.

Multiple destination folders list grows automatically
When using ‘Paste to multiple folders‘ option, the destination folder is automatically added to existing list of destination folders. You don’t have to separately add each destination folder.

Run Copywhiz from Copywhiz menu in Windows Explorer
It is now possible to launch Copywhiz directly from the Copywhiz menu using the ‘Run Copywhiz’ menu. Use this to open & run a project faster.

Windows Libraries fix
Copywhiz did not work inside folders under Libraries (Windows Libraries). Now it works.

Thanks :)

Sending a sticky note from Notezilla to Evernote

Often, we find that a single tool does not meet all our needs. One software tool may seem to be a competitor to another. But we may need both of them at different times to serve different purposes.

Notezilla & Evernote fall in such category. For taking quick notes on 3M Post-It(r) like sticky notes, setting reminders, letting them stay on Windows desktop for quick reference, attaching sticky notes to websites, documents, folders, emails etc Notezilla is a better choice. For creating notes with heavier content (media etc), Evernote may be a preferred. Both tools may be compared at different levels. However, this is not the point of this post.

Notezilla - Sticky Notes for Windows & Phone

This article mainly focuses on how to send a sticky note to Evernote from within Notezilla.

It is simple. Notezilla allows you send a note to another contact using his/her email address. Evernote gives every user a unique email address. You have to add a contact in Notezilla having Evernote’s email address and send notes to this contact.

Thanks to Kevin, who shared this use case with us:

I really like Notezilla 8 and Notezilla.net! I use Evernote and collect massive amounts of information for my work, I use Zendone for my taks and project management. Zendone has the best evernote integration I have found and for me works really well. The one thing I have always had one challenge and that’s getting a quick piece on information, not or task into Evernote. The Notezilla 8 email feature was my answer, I just setup a contact for (“notebook”, Evernote, “evernote email address”) and it worked perfectly. This will allow me to uninstall at least 2 other programs of a much lesser functionality. Really great work. It would be nice though to select how what or how much of the graphics will be sent with the note. Since, I’m actually sending it to one of my own programs, I don’t need the fancy graphics. Notezilla 8 and Notezilla.net will be one of the best purchases I have made in a while. Thanks again,

I hope you now know how to make it work.

Thanks :)
