Multiple Search and Replace
Search and replace text across multiple files

Multiple Search and Replace is a powerful tool which can search multiple files - plain text, PDF, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, archives and more - for the text you specify, then optionally replace it.

The process starts by building up your search query. This may contain multiple search terms across several lines, and there's support for logical operators (AND, OR, NOT, XOR, NEAR), wild cards and regular expressions.

There's even more flexibility in defining where you'd like to search. You're able to look for files by location, type, size and attributes, as well as their modified, created or "last accessed" times.

You can also run searches based on the number of matches in a file, their line or page number, the character position in a line, and more.

Click "Find" when you're finished and Multiple Search and Replace will go to work, locating your files. When it's finished you can browse a basic file list showing any hits, or view the results in context (this shows a few lines before and after your search term).

The program can then copy, move, delete or compress your found files, or just print/ save a list of them.

If you need to run some manual investigation then you're able to edit individual files from within Multiple Search and Replace, or via an external editor.

Alternatively, you can replace the search text across every file in a single operation. You're able to replace your search terms, delete them, delete the whole line, insert text before or after them, and more.

And if you're looking for even more automation, good news: Multiple Search and Replace has a command line interface, too.

What's New in Version 2.3 :
     Improved user interface accessibility.
What's New in Version 2.2 :
     Fixed bugs with Powerpoint find and replace.


Multiple Search and Replace is a hugely powerful search tool with an enormous list of features, and the array of settings can seem a little intimidating at first. It's really not difficult to use, though, and after running a couple of test searches you'll have a good understanding of the program basics.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
