Dump v. 0.02 29-Nov-2002 (6k) 26/32bit neutral
  Dump is a command line utility similiar to the *Dump command built into RISC OS, this version is more flexible and has none of the bugs present in the OS version. Also supports output of the hex dump to a text file for easy reference.
FakeScrap 0.01 22-Dec-1997 (2k) 26/32bit neutral

FakeScrap is a small utility which creates a pretend, but very real, equivalent of a !Scrap directory in memory. Memory is allocated only when required and then freed afterwards. FakeScrap uses PipeFS which is built into RISC OS 3 and above.

FakeScrap is designed to be used on low memory floppy based machines where; it is not always possible, or convenient to have a copy of !Scrap on every disc or to swap discs at regular intervals when applications need to use the !Scrap directory. Indeed it is not always possible to spare the disc space that a !Scrap directory would require.

FCompact v. 0.04 15-Jan-2002 (3k) 26/32bit neutral
  FCompact is a small command line utility which will fully compact any disk; the Compact command, built into RISC OS, cannot be guaranteed to fully compact a disk.
FilesFirst v. 0.02 06-Jan-2000 (4k) 26/32bit neutral
  FilesFirst is a command line utility which will scan through a directory, and any sub-directories, and build a list of files followed by the file size and directory containing the file. FilesFirst is useful when examining a collection of files of the same type, such as a collection of archived applications, music or clip art files; the output of the program can be loaded into a text editor, such as !StrongEd, and sorted, this gives a list of file names and associated information which is very useful when looking for duplicated files.
Garble v. 0.01 06-Dec-2002 (6k) 26/32bit neutral

Garble is a small command line utility which provides a fast and simple method of protecting files from prying eyes, the encryption method is effective and should keep your files secure from the majority of users. There is also a Windows version of Garble available on this site which is 100% compatible should you need to move encrypted files between platforms.

A Windows/DOS version is also available.

LMTree v. 0.01 25-Feb-2003 (11k) 26/32bit neutral *** ESSENTIAL ***
  If you've used !Director, you have probably noticed the tree menus you can
access by clicking Adjust on a filing system iconbar icon. These provide a very
useful way of accessing your files and applications.

If you have used !LanMan98 or !LanManFS whilst !Director is loaded, you've
probably noticed that clicking Adjust on the 'drive' icon of one of your open
shares gives you a tree menu of the available shares, and like me you may have
thought that it would be much more useful if a tree menu of the share itself
popped up instead.

LMTree is a freeware utility which modifies the default functionality of LanMan
and allows you to benefit from Director's tree-view menus on LanMan shares.

ShutraFS v. 0.00 01-Feb-2002 (2k)
  The ShutraFS module automatically dismounts all raFS discs on shutdown. raFS does not do this itself and requires you to manually dismount discs. raFS discs are dismounted after the shutdown sequence is completed, after any applications which are using raFS should have been closed. A *Shutdown command is then issued to ensure hard discs have been dismounted.
ShutScrap v. 0.00 09-Jan-2002 (2k)

The ShutScrap module automagically deletes the contents of the scrap directory (WIMP$ScrapDir) when the machine is shut down. ShutScrap comes in two flavours which work slightly differently.

ShutScrap: Clears the Scrap directory automagically.
ShutScrapA: Asks for confirmation first.
