Copywhiz 6 is here!

Hi everybody! 

Happy to announce that we have launched a new version of Copywhiz-Version 6.0! 

Let’s take a look at What’s New in Copywhiz 6.

Features Added

The new Copywhiz has made organization of your files simpler and easier than ever before! How?

  1. Organize files based on their attributes:

The biggest addition to Copywhiz is the file Organizer. You can organize files in the destination folder, based on attributes such as name, type, date, size, etc.

You can also easily reorder or delete the order of criteria. There is also a preview option to display the structure before pasting.

The option is available in the ‘Destination’ Tab of the Copywhiz Advanced Settings Window.

2. Organize audio/media files based on their metadata

Another useful feature is for those of you who use .mp3 files on a daily basis. Generally, we keep a lot of mp3 files on our system if we’re fond of music or if our job demands it. But organizing these files is a time-consuming task, particularly if the count is hundreds. 

You can use Copywhiz to organize these mp3 files based on their metadata like song, artist, album, track, etc.

This option is an extension of the Organizer.

3. Sync your source and destination folders

Sync, here means to keep the same set of files in the source and destination folder. Automatically remove a file from the destination folder when it is removed from the source folder.

This feature is used along with the ‘Automatically identify and paste only new and modified files’ feature. The option is available in the ‘General’ Tab of the Advanced Settings Window.

4. Verify data integrity of copied files

To check if all files have been copied successfully without any corruption, we have introduced the option to verify files after they have been copied or transferred from one location to another.

The verification will be visible in the file copy progress box.

5. Copy files to every sub-folder inside the destination folder

We have also added an option to paste a copy of your files to each sub-folder in the destination folder. You may choose to paste them under all sub-folders or all first level sub-folders or all folders having a particular name.


6. Copy files to specific sub-folders in the destination folder

If you don’t want to create a copy of the files in all folders or sub-folders, then you can choose to create a copy in only specific sub-folders.

7. Copy only files created/modified/accessed in the last ‘X’ days

This feature is a step forward in selective file copy. Now you can choose to paste only those files that have been created, modified or accessed in the last ‘X’ days. You can specify any number of days.

8. Paste files to up to 10 destinations at once

Lot of our users had asked for this feature and we have answered the request. You can now paste files simultaneously to up to 5-10 destinations at a time.

This will make copying files to multiple destinations much faster.

9. Disable the Copywhiz menu in the Windows File Explorer menu

Many users did not want Copywhiz menu to appear in the Windows File Explorer menu. They prefer to use keyboard shortcuts to copy and paste files using Copywhiz.

So we have offered the option to disable the Copywhiz menu in the Windows File Explorer menu. You can enable it again anytime later from the General Tab of Preferences menu.

10. Better organization of Copywhiz features

We have changed the view of the Advanced Settings Tab and the various features are split into three different tabs based on their functionality.

This will make it easier to find a particular option instead of searching for it.

Hope this new Copywhiz proves useful and help you work conveniently.

Do let us know what you feel about these new features. We are constantly listening and improving.

Download Copywhiz from here, if you still haven’t. We have 7 day fully functional free trial. Upgrade to Copywhiz 6 if you already have Copywhiz. Contact us for more details.

Do follow our YouTube Channel where we upload interesting videos of Copywhiz.

Have a good day!

Thank you.

Automatically organize files in separate folders based on file attributes

Here is an exciting feature of Copywhiz. It can now automatically copy files in a folder structure based on file properties such as file name, file extension, file type, file size, date modified/created/access and also mp3 metadata like artist, album, genre, title etc.

If you have your project documents, pictures, music files, video files scattered all over your hard drive, this tool will set it all right in few minutes.

Manually copying these files and then pasting them to folders is very time consuming, especially if they are large in number.  For this reason, we just dump these files in a few limited folders and end up in a clutter. This reduces our productivity.

We have a quick workaround for this, which is explained in the post.

General Settings available in Copywhiz for smooth file copy

We feel powerful and confident when we are in control of the work we do. This lets us do things the way we want. The same goes for even routine work, like your copy-paste tasks.

This post will tell you about the general settings available in Copywhiz that you can configure in the “General Tab” under the Advanced Settings.

What is Copywhiz?

  • 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.

General Tab

To access this tab, you have to open the Advanced settings of Copywhiz. If you have the Copywhiz main window already open, then you can directly click on ‘Advanced Settings.’ If you are not in the main window, you can select the items you want to copy, and in the destination folder, right-click and select Copwhiz -> Paste Advanced.

The General Tab is located on the top, next to the ‘Filter Tab.’

  • File Replace settings:
  • Copywhiz lets you decide in advance what to do when there is a duplicate file found, i.e., when a file with the same name already exists in the destination folder. This is to ensure that you are not interrupted with ‘File Replace’ message boxes again and again.

    When a file with the same name already exists, you can choose one of the options:

    Ask me what to do: You can configure what to do with that file depending on the nature of the file or the purpose of file copy etc.

    Replace/skip file: You can replace the file in the destination folder or always skip copying the file itself.

    Rename source/destination file: Here, you get the ability to auto-rename duplicate files so that both versions (source and destination) of the files are kept instead of replacing the destination file with the source file. So you can automatically rename one of the files.

  • File skip settings:
  • If you do not always want to skip all files on this error, you can choose to skip only in certain cases. You can instruct Copywhiz to skip identical files or skip files only if destination files are newer.

  • Run silently:
  • We don’t like interruption when our files are being copied. You can, therefore, configure Copywhiz to run silently, which makes sure that no message boxes appear while copying files.

    Note: By default, when you run silently, all duplicate files are replaced. But you can also change to ‘Skip’ or ‘Rename’ from the ‘File Replace’ drop down box.

  • Show logs always or on error:
  • Copywhiz will generate log files on error or always according to your selection. This log lists all your errors so that you can track down the cause and rectify it. This is very helpful in your future file copy too.

    This short video will guide you:

  • Log contents:
  • Option to log even names of files copied, skipped, and renamed.

    Conclusion

    Copywhiz thus is helpful to copy large set of files within a few moments. You don’t have to give special attention to answering any messages that may appear while the files are being copied. And what more? You can also schedule automatic file backups and take incremental backups using Copywhiz.
