Smartphotosort

Wildcard Delete ScrenshootWildcard Delete is a very simple program which copied files from several Source Folders to a target folder. In this Target folder it creates new directories: one for every day form which a source file exists.

I wrote it because my second digital Cam had not the feature of the first one which created Filenames with Date and Time in them, so it was easy if you knew where you there at the 1. of July which pictures you made. But since i discovered that people found other uses for one program from me (randomcopy) you might find a second use for it.

The Program has so less features, that this Download page is also the whole help page for the program.

How the Program works

You select in the left part of the Window a source Directory where files are located which you want to copy. You add a selected folder with the Append Button. So you can add more than one folder to the list. An item you can delete from the list by first marking the entry, then by clicking on delete.

All Files will be created in one Target folder. You select them in the last Edit field on the right side.

At last you select which files were copied by setting a mask. You can add multiple masks with a semicolon (like: *.jpg;*.avi).

What happens when you click on Execute is that:

The program scans all source folders and folders which are included in them up to the file level for files which fit to one of the masks. These will be copied to the target folder, but not ordinary copied. The Creation Date of every File is read out and in the target folder Subfolders will be created. The Subfoldername are (without any change by you) in the Form YYYY_MM_DD where YYYY stands for the Year in 4 Digit Length, MM for the month in two Digit Length (leading 0) and DD for the Day in two Digit length (with leading 0). In every Folder you find all files which were made at this day.

The intention for me was to find images form a specific day (Birthday, special event) without searching through a lot of filenames. Only for the days where files were found folders will be created. All folders are flat, meaning that the contain files independent from the source folder structure (subfolders are not copied).

Adjust of the Format

You can Select the order of Day, month and year and how many digits are used by selecting one of the formats in the Radiogroup "Date Format). Also the delimiter between the Fields (Day, Month and Year can be selected in the Delimiter Listbox. If you use a Certain Nomenclature you can add a String at the Start (Prefix) and after the Date (Suffix). How it would like you see in the Demo field. If the filed does not change one of the settings is not legal you get the Message "Invalid Filename!"

Other functions

The Messages button allows you see the messages of the last copy (copied files or failures. Failures could be: the target file exists (only new files will created, so existing files will not overwritten) or other problems.

The Add to desktop button creates an Shortcut on the Desktop, an Icon which allows you to start Smartphotosort with an simple Click.

The info Button shows an Dialog where you can visit the homepage, (this page), write an Email (your Email client will open), get information's about the program or check if there is a new version.

For the last point a remark. Since Smartphotosort is like all my program only a single executable file the download will just download an Zip Archive. When the archive is open by the default program for that (or windows) you must close Smartphotosort and extract it to the folder where you have installed it.

Advert for my book (in German Language)

Zum Thema Computer ist auch von mir ein Buch erschienen. "Computergeschichte(n)" beinhaltet, das was der Titel aussagt: einzelne Episoden aus der Frühzeit des PC. Es sind Episoden aus den Lebensläufen von Ed Roberts, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Stephen Wozniak, Gary Kildall, Adam Osborne, Jack Tramiel und Chuck Peddle und wie sie den PC schufen.

Das Buch wird abgerundet durch eine kurze Erklärung der Computertechnik vor dem PC, sowie einer Zusammenfassung was danach geschah, als die Claims abgesteckt waren. Ich habe versucht ein Buch zu schreiben, dass sie dahingehend von anderen Büchern abhebt, dass es nicht nur Geschichte erzählt sondern auch erklärt warum bestimmte Produkte erfolgreich waren, also auf die Technik eingeht.

Die 2014 erschienene zweite Auflage wurde aktualisiert und leicht erweitert. Die umfangreichste Änderung ist ein 60 Seiten starkes Kapitel über Seymour Cray und die von ihm entworfenen Supercomputer. Bedingt durch Preissenkungen bei Neuauflagen ist es mit 19,90 Euro trotz gestiegenem Umfang um 5 Euro billiger als die erste Auflage. Es ist auch als e-Book für 10,99 Euro erschienen.

Mehr über das Buch auf dieser eigenen Seite.

Hier geht's zur Gesamtübersicht meiner Bücher mit direkten Links zum BOD-Buchshop. Die Bücher sind aber auch direkt im Buchhandel bestellbar (da ich über sehr spezielle Themen schreibe, wird man sie wohl kaum in der Auslage finden) und sie sind natürlich in den gängigen Online-Plattformen wie Amazon, Libri, Buecher.de erhältlich.
