    Is There A Good Free File Manager?


    I need help organising some files.

    I have a directory of some 6000 pdf files. I need them organised by author, which is in the filename.

    I'm currently going down the list, finding an author with 50 or more to his name, creating a folder by that name and then selecting all his files and moving them there.

    Very, very slow and tedious.

    I've been at it for the last hour or more and I'm still hardly anywhere.

    There's such a lot of file managing stuff found when I google but when I get them and install them they don't seem to do what I want.

    Can anyone help by directing me to something that will do this thing perhaps? Or there's nothing known?

    :)

    There are no more files and ASUS Data Security Manager


    I've been having the same issues trying to save files.

    I followed all of the steps but ASUS Data Security Manager keeps reappearing. How do I really get it to delete? I've done the uninstall four times and it just pops back in the list.

    It keeps popping up for me too, but after I disabled it the first time all was fixed and the problem hasn't popped up again even with ADSM running. Good luck!

    Is There A Good Free File Manager?

    Did our Epson printer get hacked?

    Another question, is this on a home network or a work network? The steps @eidairaman1 listed are always a good first step. If this is on a work network you manage, I'd be much more concerned than the home one. It is possible someone is screwing with you, but malware could also be the culprit.
