Copying only the folder tree structure without the files using Copywhiz

As you know, Copywhiz gives you more control over file copying operations in Windows. You can selectively copy only the files that you want, such as copying only new or modified/changed files, copying files from several folders except for certain files, copying files by type, date, size, etc.

Here is a new feature that we discovered today in Copywhiz.

Thanks to our customer Garrett Goyette :)

Here is a small video depicting this feature:

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 and backup 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 :)

An effective way to deal with low priority tasks

Today I am going to show you a self-invented technique that ensures that you take up & complete those ‘Do-it-later‘ low priority tasks. It has been working well for me.

At work or home, often, we have a list of tasks that we categorize under ‘Do-it-later.’ But, just like ‘Tomorrow never comes‘, even ‘Later never comes‘. Because you will always have some high-priority tasks precede the low-priority ones.

Unless you add some importance to the task & schedule it for a particular day, you will (almost) always find it getting dragged to the future.

Here is a technique:

STEP 1: List all your ‘Do-it-later‘ tasks in a task-management/note-taking tool. Make sure your tool supports reminders. I am using Notezilla sticky notes app for this purpose.

I added all the tasks to a checklist sticky note in Notezilla & set the note title to ‘Take one task today’. The title needs to be motivating. Don’t set the title to ‘Do it later’ :).
Take one task today - sticky note
STEP 2: Set a recurring reminder on that note so that you are reminded every day or every weekend. That’s it. When setting a reminder, choose that time of the day when you are most likely to pick a less-important task.

Now, when you are reminded, choose any task that you can start on that day. You don’t need to complete the job that day. You can just set the momentum by starting it. The important part is that you only have a focus on one task at this instance.
The advantage of listing all tasks in a single note is that you have a choice to pick any of the tasks based on the amount of free time you have on that particular day.

This method looks simple but it is very effective. One – All the tasks are listed in a single place, Two – You are forced to pick a task & Three – It gives you the liberty to pick any one task based on your convenience.

Of course, no tool or technology can conquer man’s laziness :). When you are reminded of these tasks everyday/weekend, your discipline & commitment will decide the success of this technique.

If you find this article interesting, do share it with others.

Thanks :)

Copywhiz 4.0 launched – Piky Basket’s new version

We are thrilled to launch the new version of Piky Basket called ‘Copywhiz‘. After receiving several feedback on the name ‘Piky Basket’, we have finally renamed Piky Basket to Copywhiz.

Piky Basket was part of a suite of products called PikySuite – a suite of 3 products: PikyBasket, PikyFolders & PikyTools. Out of all the three products, we have discontinued PikyFolders & PikyTools due to redundant features in Windows Vista & Windows 7. While PikyBasket has been retained as Copywhiz.

Copywhiz has many cool enhancements. Plus, it has been made simple & intuitive. The new version is very easy to understand and use.
