Utilities for Windows NT
Last Updated December 14th, 2022

You can find some tools on this page, which I wrote for different purpose. All of them are related to Windows NT/2K/XP/2K3.

  Hardlink ShellExtension Have you ever wanted to create hardlinks as it was possible with Unix, but not from the commandline but from the Explorer simply by right clicking an item? Take a look a the HardlinkShellExtension for WinNT/2K

  ln command line hardlinks Hardlinks can be created by ln.exe from resource kit, but this tool can do more. It does hardlinks recursivley and resolves UNC names. See ln - command line hardlinks

  dupemerge command line utility Most harddisks contain quite a lot of completely identical files, which consume a lot of disk space. This waste of space can be drastically reduced by using the NTFS filesystem hardlinks functionality, if identical files aka dupes are hardlinked together.. See dupemerge - command line

  xdel command line utility Deleting subdirectories recursivley can be done by a various of tools, but only xdel is aware of junctions, and instead of crawling recursivley down a junction, xdel simply unlinks the junction, and so does no harm to contents chained into a hierarchy via junctions. See xdel- command line

  Winfile Winfile is github-reborn and I spent quite some time to refurbish it.

  Bunter Jahreskalender This is a Excel Sheet, which creates a nice calender for the whole year. It calculates the holidays, allows to specify vacation, and with respect colors the days in the calender. See Bunter Jahreskalender
