DiskFree

1.2

This program displays the amount of free space remaining on the disk it is run from, in the form of a convenient bar graph.

It is best used as a startup task, and will automatically close after 5 seconds. It will usually avoid the Windows taskbar.

If you prefer to see how much space has been used instead (in the same manner as Windows Explorer), then use the switch /U, or rename the program to diskused.exe.

PEDate

1.0

This command-line program reads the date and time embedded inside every portable executable (usually 32-bit Windows program files) when linked. You can optionally change the filesystem timestamp with this value.

Take all link dates with a pinch of salt. Some linkers use the memory for another purpose.

Options

/C Update the filesystem creation date to match the link date.
/U Updates all filesystem dates (created, modified and accessed) to match the link date.
/P Pad the view of filenames and dates with spaces.

Wildcards are not supported.

Compatibility

Microsoft Windows 95/NT or newer.

3DFind

0.23

Search for a value within one file that has changed to another value in a second file. Both files must be the same size.

You can use this on emulator savestates to cheat!

Options

/C Find hexadecimal byte1 within file1 and see if it matches byte2 within file2.
/D Same as /C, but with decimal values instead of hexadecimal.
/L Lists any bytes that have decreased in value.
/M Lists any bytes that have increased in value.
/V Verbose output.

Compatibility

Microsoft Windows 95/NT or newer.

Tally-O

0.04

Tally-O creates a new file based on the most common byte for every position within 3 or more source files.

This program was written to help me recover and restore individual floppy disk sectors. Each problematic sector was read multiple times, and Tally-O managed to work out what it was supposed to be.

Limitations

  • Every file must be the same size
  • Maximum of 255 input files
  • Destination file must not already exist
  • Stalemates are resolved using the earliest specified file

Compatibility

Microsoft Windows 95/NT or newer.
