atmfiler, detailed descripton

Atmfiler helps you to keep files updated in two or more location with the sync mode activated.

You may have a folder you always wanna have backup on with the option to overwrite older files, or make a copy on older files. A copy will be placed in the same folder with filename(0).txt filename(1).txt and so on.
This config is based upon one or more "master" folders, the slave folders will backup from this master folder. You can have one slave folder that overwrites old files so it resembles the master folder, and you can have another slave folder to save a version of all changes from the master folder.
This sync is one way based.

You can also have a two way based sync, in this case you just add a new master folder which is the previous slave folder like this picture show. And you will have a two way sync.



  • Atmfiler can handle folders that does not exist for the moment, like a USB-stick. When the USB becomes available the sync will start
  • There are no limitations if the folders are local or on the network.
  • You can ignore subfolders if you like.
  • You can let the application wait x days before it syncs.
  • Logging all the events done.
  • Filters and wildcard for just syncing *.jpg files, or for example files that starts with PHOTO. Unlimited filter rules per folder.
  • Three way to handle file collisions, overwrite, create a new file and skip.
  • You can create subfolders to easy manage photos for example, theese are available: MMMM yyyy, yyyyMMdd with both date of the copied file and file creation date. (january 2014 or 20140101)
  • Possible to add a new file prefix, like COPIED_, that will then be COPIED_file.txt (only available in move)
  • Move files to a folder, as soon as any file arrives (which contains all the above possible parameters) the file is transfered to one or up to unlimited amount of destination folders.
  • Unlimited numbers of master-folders aswell.
  • No limitations on the amout of sync data.
  • Handle folders "in motion", new files can arrive without issues.




atmfiler 3.2


First of all, what does atmfiler do?
It's a file batch mover OR copier if you like. Setup how many from-and-to folders you like.
Quite customable, make subfolders with the date and so on to sort you home pictures.
You can move the files after say, 30 days, good for moving away loggfiles.
Select files that contains some characters in the filename, select files with certain file extentions.
Move the top directory, or copy the whole directory including subdirectorys.


atmfiler 3.2 is ahead, this is whats new!

  • Added an option to enable timestamp in GUI.
  • The settings for On Top, Timestamp in GUI, Logglevel and halt on error doesn't need the save button to kick in anymore.
  • Made the GUI more clean and some small fixes
  • You can now also type manually the folder you want to add, not just browse.
  • Fixed the Current-job progress bar.



Installer and a zip, take your pick!

ServiceControl 0.1

The result is:

ServiceControl, I wrote this because I have problems with a service that stops from now and then. (known problem for Vista and above with print spooler if the printer driver is too old)

It's a very initial release with not so many features. The main thing this program do is monitor a choosen windows service, and restarts it if it's stopped.
As mentioned earlier, can be good for unstable services or a very important service you dont want to risk kept stopped.

Some ideas for future releases:

  • Possible to install as a Windows Service.
  • Add more than one service to monitor.
  • More actions upon halt.
  • Number of tries before the program dont start it anymore.
  • Timeout max for startup.
  • Configuration file.

Download here: ServiceControl-0.1b-bin

Running on Windows 2000 and above, .NET framework 2.0+ is required.


New Application

Coming soon..


If you have a Windows Service that isn't stable, you can't figure it out what's wrong. This tool will be great for you.

You pick a service that you want to supervise, and an action if it stops, for instance start it again. This can help you save time while you can figure out what's wrong.
Or if you have a service that is to important to not risk it to stay stopped.
