Contrary to metiure's posting, FileControl is free (I should know, it's our software!)

It may be free. But I cannot get it to run. It keeps asking to re-install. There is a problem with the license.

The program looks good if it would run.

Sorry, Brian, but you are telling only a part of truth. It is a trialware, and the supplied ReadMe file is quite clear in that, the excerpt is below:

"Evaluating FileControl

When you first install and use FileControl, it will be running in Trial mode where it has the following limitations:

    FileControl will only process 5,000 items (folders + files)

    FileControl will not show the deleted items (i.e., only new and changed items will be shown)

    the Trial will expire 4 weeks after being installed

FileControl will remind you of these limitations, when applicable.

Purchasing FileControl

When you are satisfied that FileControl has value, you can purchase a license for FileControl via www.derman.com. We use the fine e-store services provided by Kagi. When you receive your License ID from Kagi (via the "Thanks for your purchase" email), you can license FileControl as indicated below."
