    This thread is for really small downloads (Utilities mainly).
    Only condition is that they MUST BE less than a 1 Megabyte download.
    Even those unforunates still on dialup, :cry or those on download plans MAY FIND THEM USEFUL. :(

    Your contributions are most welcome.
    Let us know if you have used them, and a small review might be nice. :-D

    Here's some to start of with.

    Looking forward to your input. :major

    I'm all for small downloads even though I have tons of free space.

    Regarding the Windows Firewall Control. We're advised to have only one firewall and I have WF and WF with Advanced Security. I don't know which one to keep but -- will the WFC program affect either of them?

    [... I apologize in advance if this post is not approriate ...]

    Are you referring to small size programs listed at MG only? There is a site TinyApps that lists these kinds of programs as well. I don't know how well they keep things up-to-date, though.

    I'm not an advocate or rep for TinyApps. It's been quite a while since I've visited that site, just happened to remember it when seeing this thread.

    At a glance I do see some programs that are "download-able" here at MG.

    No, I am not only referring to MG. :major
    I guess I am "an advocate" for MG. :-D
    I prefer to download from MG, if possible, as I have been a member for over 7 years and find most of what I use from MG, in the first instance.

    All contributions appreciated.
    Thanks for the link to TinyApps.org I will check that out.

    I haven't used Windows Firewall Control (WFC) but it appears to be only a quick link
    .
    Anyone with experience in using WFC, please step in. :)

    Thanks Solaris, I know about the W7 design. :)
    Tclockex does it all in the one line. That is the difference, and saves a bit of taskbar horizontal screen space.

    Or two in one line. I just read that Tclockex doesn't want to install on Win7 64 bit, but I haven't been able to verify if that is correct or not.

    Still works up to Windows 7 Ultimate 32 Bit OS :cool

    It works well, it is cheap, uses 2 megs of RAM and solves the problem of missing LED's in any cordless keyboard beautifully, IMO.
    Try it, free download to try. USD$5.95 to buy.
    Lots of options in Alerts, Sounds, etc.

    DriveUse v1.00
    http://tinyapps.org/file.html
    Scroll down to find it. ;)
    [7kB] in Size
    DriveUse reports detailed disk space usage on all drives and presents the results in a clear, sorted, tree-like structure.

    My note: It works quickly. Select the Drive, e.g., "C"
    and it reports on space usage. Not the most aesthetic program, but only 7kB
    Don't worry if it says "Not responding". It will.:-D

    See thumbnail for example.

    This looked very interesting, so I gave it a quick tryout.
    Used barely 6MB when running.
    The interface for search options is fairly simple and everything is clearly labeled.
    You do have to set a target in the Base Folders field since it is blank on the first run, and therefore does not know Where to search.

    I tried a search for all files Created in the last 10 minutes on C:, which currently has 19.4GB of used space.
    That search took 12 seconds.

    You can configure which Columns are shown in the Results display and even set the width of each column in pixels.
    All columns are shown by default.
    You can quickly adjust all of the column widths to best fit by pressing Ctrl+(numeric-key-pad-Plus).

    For finding files by Filename, with or without wildcards, it is not as fast as Everything Search, but it is much more flexible and specific with search options.

    Since it is so small and does not require any installation, I think this is a good tool to have.
