thoughts on edusweep
1. its fab
. word 2000 leaves temp files called ~*.doc
. it'd be good if could stretch the results window to accomodate longer folder paths if we need to.
. Im not sure why we need to see the list of folders being discovered, although maybe a counter would be useful.
.ability to scan inside rar/zip would be neat
Hi and thanks for your comments!

If I add signatures for those temporary documents, would you prefer them to come under the "Office Word Documents" signature, the "Temporary Files" signature or even a new one called "Temporary Word Documents"?
Stretchy windows are in 2.1 which is due out any day now. :)
I'm thinking about the list...maybe replacing it with some statistics instead. Any changes there will be in 2.2.
Scanning inside zip files should be an easy feature to add - EduSweep uses the DotNetZip library already. I don't know if it can open other archives too but I'll investigate. This would be another 2.2 feature.
Me, I'd prefer it under temporary files. I look forward to seeing the other features. thx :)
Sounds good bizzel. You know I think your programs are excellent. Just one minor thing whilst we're on the subject...

It absolutely did have that option and the good news is that it's back in 2.1. I should have that ready around the beginning of next week. :)
Thanks for the kind comments guys.
something else, it'd be handy to be able to create a task where i can just type in a single filetype without having to create a signature first. the signatures seem handier when I want to check for multiple files at once. like now I need to scan for just m4a files. whilst that exists in other signatures. i've just had to create a sep sig just for that. seems excessive.
oh dear I've apparently done something wrong as when i run my m4a task the program closes itself lol
on the sig creator i went to add extensions and put in *.m4a in one of the rows. (the text on that box talks about keywords by the way not extensions so I didnt know what to do)
to fix the problem, i went in the program folder and edited the xml file and removed "*." and now its fine.
