File Workshop aspires to be(come) an ultra compact, portable windows application, consisting of special file tools. The application has been coded in C++ from scratch and is really small, fast and reliable. It is aimed to be more a state-of-the-art tool than a program with shining interface.
For bugs reporting, suggestions or else contact me at .

Current version highlights:

- Full enhanced criteria for advanced users
- High accuracy
- Highly optimized algorithms inside
- Works well with very big numbers of files
- Compacted interface in a resizable window
- No installation needed, just copy the program file where you want to be
- High portability (runs from USB stick/burned in a CD or DVD/WinPE/...)
- Designed for Windows™ XP/Vista/7/8 and provided as freeware

Latest news...
(Oct 19 2013) New version "approved". There are no visible changes (except the reduced binary size) but the source code has been partially rewritten and generally improved. The upcoming "Next" with feature changes will follow soon.
(Oct 16 2013) I was busy recently but I am still on the project in my spare time. I have almost complete the necessary internal code changes, so after a few more builds an official public version will come out.
(Aug 31 2013) After 3 years of inactivity, I am considering to unfreeze the project. In the first place I am planning to recode some parts of the code, to help future expanding. I added a link to the "Next" build (the latest internal build which I am working on). Just core updates for now, feature updates will follow later. Also, EULA is going to change (limited commercial usage will be allowed).

(Feb 2 2010) The lost source code parts have been recoded as well I did some minor additions.
(Jan 17 2010) The new site is up! Rather simplistic, but enough for my needs and hopefully nice.
(Jan 3 2010) Since today, the "File Workshop" moved on its own domain! In the near future I am planning a major site update and then I will continue the developement of the File Workshop...
(Dec 2 2009) Unfortunately, a hard disk failure caused me to lose lots of important personal files, including source code of the "File Workshop" and also an unreleased update. So, now, I have to recreate parts and continue the project from an older backup and there will be a delay till the next update.
