These are fantastic!

How about a Registry Search and Replace tool? This would be awesome.

I've asked MS for 3 years to fix Regedit so you can Find and Replace and they won't entertain the idea.

PowerQuest Partition Magic used to come with something similar so when you shrunk a partition to add another and move your data/programs you could change the drive letter in the Registry.

Would that be hard to do?

I just tried out eXPander and I have to say, I really like it. It definitely improves on Compression Bin (no offense jcarle).

I have a question and request though.

1. Is modifyPE included in the app (I'm not clear weather it is or not)

2. Would you consider adding an option to make a .cab archive of a folders contents e.g CabTool.

Although I like CabTool I hate the way it renames the archive to upper case!


Edit: Sorry, one more thing to consider.

3. If you select to process multiple files via the shell extension explorer can/will crash.

This isn't a problem with the app, it's just that explorer can't cope sending more than one file this way (or so I've found).

My only workaround would be a shortcut in SendTo but it's purly up to you.

Keep up the good work.
