Hello everyone,

I've been searching for a file organizer that would help me sort my files out in the way Picasa2 does with photos. I found this software on softpedia. Its description matches what I've been looking for especially the copy/ paste and swap functions. However, I am reluctant to download it for the simple reason that I've never heard about its developer neither found information about him on the net. Does anyone have information about this? Or can anyone recommend a more reliable file manager/ organiser?

Thanks in advance.

P.S. Name of the software I found on softpedia is File Organiser 1.14; http://www.softpedia.com/get/File-managers...Organiser.shtml
Name of developer: Thomas Wosley (!!!!).

Lots of great software is developed by individuals as opposed to multi million dollar corporations. Softpedia is a well known software distributor.

Well, don't you think that it's more likely for someone to encounter a badware in a software developed by individuals than in material developed by famous companies?

I always check the reputation of the developer before downloading a new software, that's why I asked my question in post #1. Thanks anyway for your answer :thumbsup:.

As well you should. In this case, one can note that the application is available from several more or less reputable sources, despite it being written by a dead English cardinal. I suppose it is safe to download, but I myself would try to find a different application at Download.com where each file is checked before being allowed.
You could, of course, download the file, check it with your AV and AS applications, and then install it.

Actually my two AS don't support the "customize research" option, since they are freewares unlike my AV. In other words, they are good for scanning and cleaning the computer for spyware/ adware once it's infected not before. So I'd rather pass this download because I don't feel comfortable about it.

Thanks for your advice,

Take care.
