Backup copy of Brian Friesen's "Freezerware" site
Cal Poly is no longer hosting Brian's "Freezerware" tools for Windows, so, with his
permission, I put a temporary copy of his tool collection on my server, here:
Some of the files can also be found at the WayBack Machine:
He's also written a few new tools:
- ZoneRemove (ZoneRmv.exe)
scans your hard drive for files that are flagged as having been
downloaded from the Internet. You can select one or more of these
files and clear this flag. You know if you download a program from
the Internet, when you run that program it says something like "this
program was downloaded and may not be safe, would you like to continue?"
Removing the zone info prevents these annoying warnings.
- SysBackup is a utility that performs
a simple backup. You can specify the source drive and/or folders, as well
as any folders to be excluded. Then input the target folder and click
Backup. It will scan the folders and backup all files and folders it
finds. This backup is more than just a copy. Copying a file is not a
true backup. A true backup does more such as preserving file timestamps
and correctly processing registry hives. I use this program to backup
my main system onto external hard drives.
- HardLink is used to link duplicate
files together. It scans the drive looking for identical files. It then "links"
the two together thus saving hard drive space. I use this in conjunction with
the SysBackup. I should warn you, if you don't know what you're doing,
hard linking files can be dangerous.
