New FileHamster Product Format

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009

Mogware is announcing a new FileHamster product lineup that should greatly simplify the user’s purchasing/install experiences and consolidate things for better organization.

  • FileHamster Basic – Perfect for the average home user who just wants to backup files as they work.  This version contains a new setup wizard that greatly improves the user’s first-run experience making it easier than ever for less technical users to setup and run FileHamster.  Comprised of the old FileHamster +Plus features along with a few of the basic plugins all nicely packed into a single installer.
  • FileHamster Advanced – Expanding the Basic version into the perfect workflow tool which includes an impressive collection of powerful features such as advanced reporting, automatic ftp uploading, revision diffing, script triggering, revision zipping, revision replication, etc…  Comprised of the old FileHamster +plus features and nearly all of the plugins.
  • FileHamster Enterprise – Further expanding the Advanced version into an excellent small business solution for teams who share common network files including the yet-to-be released ability to run silently in the background as a Windows service .  Comprised of the old FileHamster +plus features, all of the optional plugins including the team plugin.

The new free trial version allows users to have full access to all of the Basic features for 30 days before reverting to a free version with limited features.

Team Plugin Released

Wednesday, January 14th, 2009

After a long wait Mogware has released the Team Plugin.

The FileHamster Team plugin was created with small to medium sized teams in mind. Many companies and groups have files on a network that are accessed by many different users throughout any given day. The Team Plugin allows FileHamster to keep revisions of the files on the network and display them for the entire team to see the progress. Important information is stored about who made a certain change to a file, when they made it and who is currently working on a certain file.

When using the FileHamster Team Plugin users access the shared files through the FileHamster interface. A user can lock a file and begin editing it. When they have the file locked other users are able to see in FileHamster that the file is locked, thus preventing users from accessing the file at the same time. When a user makes a revision their computer user name is recorded with that particular revision.

New FileHamster Videos

Thursday, January 8th, 2009

We now have demonstration videos for all of our FileHamster products.

The new videos give examples of the basic use of FileHamster itself and all of the available plugins that Mogware provides. These videos give users a much closer look at what exactly they can expect out of FileHamster.

“Although the videos do not come close to showing everything that can be done, they do a great job of laying the groundwork and hopefully opening the possibilities to our users.” – John Renstrom, President Mogware.

Script Plugin Released

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2008

Mogware has released the FileHamster Script Plugin which is the most powerful FileHamster plugin to date.

For many of us, saving and revisioning a file only marks the beginning of what can be a long and tedious process for a file. The use of scripts can drasticaly reduce the amount of time spent on these secondary tasks. With FileHamster’s Script Plugin you can set a script to be triggered anytime a revision of a file is made. This Plugin is only limited by what you know or can learn about scripts. Even without knowledge of scripting you can find scripts to perform certain actions. The Script Plugin will expedite and simplify many tasks, such as:

  • Copying files to an alternate location
  • Converting file formats
  • Renaming or deleting
  • Sending files via FTP
  • Opening files for previewing
  • Sending Email notifications
  • Running reminder prompts to yourself
  • Keeping track of your work time and progress
  • Anything else you can dream up

Script Console

With FileHamster you can use many scripting languages including:

  • Javascript
  • PHP
  • Batch files
  • VBscript
  • PERL
  • Windows scripts
  • And more…

Truly another powerful addition to an already powerful tool.
