Count all the files present in a specified folder, regardless of whether or not they are currently hidden, with this simple utility.
- License :Freeware
- OS:Windows All
FileCounter is a very simple application designed to perform a simple function, namely to help you determine how many files are stored in a particular folder on your hard drive.
The program is very easy to use and can detect hidden or even protected operating system files, but it cannot scan subfolders and does not support drag and drop.
Straightforward utility that can count hidden and protected files
Naturally, it is not at all difficult to figure out how many files are present in a particular folder even without this application, as the information is displayed by the File Explorer, and you can check a folder’s properties to view more detailed info.
However, FileCounter also takes hidden and protected operating system files into consideration, which can be very useful in certain scenarios.
Simple application that lacks advanced features
Unfortunately, the program does not count any files stored in subfolders or the directories themselves. Because of this, FileCounter is only useful if you need to analyze folders that have a simple structure.
Also, the application does not offer support for drag and drop, and it cannot accumulate multiple file counts.
As it stands, FileCounter has few actual uses, as it is only really helpful if you need to know exactly how many items are present in a particular folder without leaving out hidden or protected operating system files.
Lightweight program that can be deployed quite easily
The application’s installation procedure is relatively straightforward, as you only need to follow a few simple steps. However, it is worth noting that .NET Framework is required for the program to function correctly.
All in all, FileCounter is a no-nonsense application designed to help you determine how many items are present in a specific folder. Its main advantage is the fact that it can count hidden and protected operating system files, but, on the whole, it offers a very limited array of features.
