File Commander helps you save time when organizing the files on your disk.

  • If you find that you're moving, copying, or deleting the same files over and over, you can use File Commander to make a simple command that does it for you.  When you run the command, your files will be moved, copied, or deleted just as if you'd done it yourself.
  • File Commander includes a Wizard for creating new commands, with easy step-by-step instructions.  There are no scripts to write and no technical jargon to understand.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's the command line to run a File Command?

The command line for running a File Command is as follows:

"C:\Program Files\File Commander\FCmd"/run "<the command file name>"

For example, to run a command named "Weekly Backup":

"C:\Program Files\File Commander\FCmd"/run "Weekly Backup"

The quotation marks are optional and are required only if the file name contains spaces.  You can actually specify more than one file name, and each of the command files will be run in sequence.

If you run the "C:\Program Files\File Commander\FCmd" program with no parameters, it will show a window that explains it's command line parameters.

How to I run a command with the Windows® Task Scheduler?

Just add a new task in the Task Scheduler and use the command line format shown above.  If you want the command to run silently, you can change the command slightly as follows:

"C:\Program Files\File Commander\FCmd" /run /s "<the command file name>"

How does File Commander work with a CD or DVD drive?

When copying files from a CD or DVD drive, File Commander treats the drive just like any other drive.  You cannot move a file from a CD or DVD drive because it's read-only.

File Commander 2.0 allows you to copy or move files to a CD or DVD drive.  It does this just like Windows Explorer - it copies or moves the files to a temporary CD burning area on your main hard drive, then it's up to you to actually start the burn.

File Commander 1.5 cannot update a CD or DVD drive.
