Description: FSD is a Windows file search/delete utility.
Author: Clyde W. Grotophorst
Registration: None, FSD is a freeware utility
To install: If you have the ZIP file with VBRUN300.DLL
included, move that file to your windows system directory
(typically C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM) and then put FSD.EXE
wherever you like. If you already have a copy of
VBRUN300.DLL on your machine, just put FSD someplace
and you're ready.
FSD is a simple utility program that collects all the
files (up to a maximum of 2700) on a drive that match a
user-supplied file spec. Files appear in the top window
as a match is found (you can interrupt the search at any
time by pressing the Interrupt button--names of files found
thus far are displayed in the top window).
If you're just looking for a file, that's the end of it.
Just press the EXIT button when you're ready to shut the
But, if you want to delete a few of the files, double click on any
name in the top window and moves it down to the bottom (if
you change your mind, double click on the filename in the bottom
window and it moves back up). Click on the 'Delete files' button to
delete all the files shown in the 'to be deleted' window.
You can move ALL files from the Match List to the Delete list
by pressing the 'move all files to delete list' button.
If you want to be asked "Are you sure" on the delete command,
just check the Verify delete checkbox...
To view file info (name, size, last modified date), just highlight
a file in either box (a single click of your left mouse button).
Use with caution...FSD will delete files without concern for
their intrinsic value to you. We've tried to make it a bit more
difficult to accidentally delete a lot of files--you have to double
click on the one's you want to move into the 'to be deleted' holding bin
and you have the ability to empty it out anytime before you press the
Delete Files button.
FSD will warn you before deleting a hidden, system, and/or read-only
