Easily copy files - even if they're locked

ShadowCopy is a simple tool which can copy files from a source folder to your chosen destination - even if they're locked by Windows.

You could use a regular backup tool to do this, of course, as most support copying locked files already. But that could be a little inconvenient. ShadowCopy aims to be a quicker, more straightforward solution: just specify your source (C:\Users\[YourName]\Documents, say), the destination (maybe D:\Backup), and the files to be copied (*.DOCX, *.* or whatever it might be), click Copy and that's it.

If you do need more control, though, there are a few options available. You can choose whether or not to copy subdirectories, for instance, or overwrite existing files, just by checking a box or two.

And if you want to do this regularly, the program's support for command line switches means you can run it from a script. Something like "shadowcopy c:\*.* d:\ /s" will copy everything on your C:\ drive - even if it's locked - to D:\, including all subfolders.

Verdict:

It's a shame ShadowCopy isn't portable, but otherwise this is a quick and easy way to copy locked files

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
