OnClick Utilities Updates
Five of the eight programs that go to make OnClick
Utilities have been updated with new features and fixes. The updated versions
are free to all licensees of FindOnClick, UndeleteOnClick, and OnClick Utilities.
FindOnClick now excludes empty files in searches and a search summary is shown
if the program is run from the shortcut.
In UndeleteOnClick you
can now preview images (,jpg .gif) and text files before undeleting
the user of the number of matching hash values found in the clipboard, and
will search the clipboard again for matching hash values if
the clipboard contents changes.

all windows" command.

Recovering Lost Photos
Many of us enjoy
the convenience of digital photography. Digital photos are easily
shared with family and friends via email or the web, are easily
stored, occupy minimal space, and are also more cost effective
as only the best photos can be selected for developing.
Digital cameras also offer quick deletion of photos which is
not always a good thing. Imagine you are on holiday and you have
just spent a great day out taking photos at the zoo. Before you
could upload your photos from the camera's memory card to your
laptop, you accidentally deleted all the photos with one swift
move while chatting away on the phone with a friend. A huge sense
of disappointment sends a shiver down your spine, you panic but
what can you do? Unfortunately, having a good backup plan in
place is not enough in this case since there was nothing to backup
from your laptop in the first place!
What you need in this situation is a program to undelete the
photos. We offer our very own UndeleteOnClick, which is part
of the OnClick Utilities package that does just as its name says.
All you have to do is connect your digital camera or the camera's
memory card to your laptop immediately (do not use the camera
to take any more photos as you significantly lesson your chances
of undeleting your treasured images), open UndeleteOnClick, select
the drive to scan, then select the filters to let UndeleteOnClick
do its magic. Within seconds, UndeleteOnClick will provide you
with a list of files that have been deleted. You can then select
the specific files to undelete. It also provides the condition
that the files are in, which ranges from "Good" that
means undeleting the file is not a problem, to "Lost" that means the file is not recoverable. The only thing left to do now is to
select the files to be undeleted and click on the "Undelete Selected" button. How simple is that? It truly is!
The latest version of UndeleteOnClick just released has a valuable
new feature that's perfect for photographers. The program will
now let the user preview images (and text files) before undeleting
them! Many image formats like .jpg and .gif are supported.
A must-have piece of software for every photographer's computer.

Why do I need HashOnClick?
Ever wondered if a file of
yours had been tampered with or you simply need to know if two files
are identical? Well, HashOnClick will be your new found friend.
HashOnClick offers ten different algorithms that allow you to calculate
the hash values of any Windows files. The
different algorithms calculate hash values with different levels of
security. In simpler terms, a hash value can be seen as a file's "fingerprint",
therefore all hash values are unique.
An example of when you might want to use HashOnClick is if you often
send files via email to colleagues at work and need a way to ensure
that the file sent is identical to the file received, you can use HashOnClick
to generate the hash value and send it along with the file. The person
receiving the file will then calculate the hash value with the same
algorithm and if the hash values do not match, you will know that the
two files are not identical. This is the perfect way of detecting any
errors that may have occurred during transmission.
HashOnClick is one of eight programs that make up our OnClick
