FlashPlus and FAFileMover 1.4.2
The FlashPlus includes two applications - FAUtil and FAFileMover.
FAUtil - This is the "check it out" app that you run anytime you insert a new or strange CF Card into your MatchBookDrive. If it doesn't pass muster in this app for whatever reason, don't even try using the other apps. I've tried five CF Cards ranging in size from 4 megs to 64 megs without incident. Note in the screen shot that the CFCardInfo application has recognized my 16 meg card as a SanDisk SDCFB-16. It also shows details like how many "heads" and "cylinders" this card has. Remember, that a CF Card looks like a hard drive, and doesn't really have physical heads and cylinders - it has "logical" heads and cylinders.
FAFileMover - Its list of features is very complete, and it does a great job as an all around file management utility for Palm Databases.
FAFileMover has been improved a lot lately, and the most significant change has
been the addition of support for an arbitrary depth of Directories. This
has been a most welcome addition. File copying includes the obligatory progress bar, and it provides
sufficient status, although an "overall progress" bar would be a great addition
when copying a large number of files. Perhaps two progress bars on the
same dialog would be nice, one showing the current file and one showing overall
progress. FAFileMover shows the progress for the current file only, and the
competing MemPlugCF shows the progress overall for the entire operation, but
having two would be ideal.
