You should be able to do this using MultiScript.  (UserDefinedCommand of MultiScript type)

From the script you can get all selected, and then loop all the items and execute a command for each items..

Support and Feedback / run batchfile in selected folders in a panel
« Last post by klaashobo on Yesterday at 21:00:48 »
I would like to run a batchfile in many selected folders from a search. For this I have put the command for the batchfile under a button.

So first I do a search and get a lot of folders in the right hand panel. Then I would like to select a folder in the panel (not click on it to go into the folder but just selection) and I want to click on my button to execute the batchfile in that folder without leaving the list of folders.

If I move to the path of a folder and run the batchfile with the button that's working fine. But I have a lot of folders that need to be done without knowing yet witch one...

Support and Feedback / Re: Make content search way faster?
« Last post by bofh on February 14, 2020, 10:56:35 »
I did not keep the files. But did content search for "foobar" and it searched them all.

so one strange thing is why your search took 4s and mine 85s. My PC is not that slow.

Are you sure you had the same search parameters for both programs? I don't know what why there is a difference..

Both did a full text search over all file types (text and binary).

However it works, Even if it is a lite slower I can't spend massive amount of time right now on doing tweaking to just speed up something that works.

I agree, 4s -> 3s is no reason to even think about it.

But my results were 1/20 of this speed. Maybe I can find the reason some day.

How often to you really search the content of 1.7GB+ files.
I put it on the list for future task "investigate performance of content search"  But sorry, it is not on top of my list.

attached a screenshot of my settings for the search.

The PC is running a Core i5-8265U.

The search findes 42 files.

did you search for the string "foobar" in the file contents? It should yield roughly 42 hits.

If you also did a content search and it was so much faster than on my PC, I'd like to investigate the reasons for the *20 difference.

Speed depends on so much, if it is doing text search in binary files or not and so on. How large the files are and so on.
I can search over 100.000 files in a few seconds on my test machine, so not sure what takes time on your

I found a FreeCAD-0.18.4.980bf90-WIN-x64-portable.7z that was 1.7GB unpacked on github..unpacked it..  took me 4s to search it all on a normal spinning drive .
 (but I suspect everything was in memory cache in windows, since the unpack)

Hi,

thanks for providing Multi Commander for free. The feature list is overwhelming.

But is there any chance to make content search much faster?

As a benchmark, I started a full text search for "foobar" in a set of 8711 files, 1.65GiB (FreeCAD-0.18.4.980bf90-WIN-x64-portable.7z unpacked to NVME SSD, but everything is cached im RAM after the first access).

Multi Commander 9.6.1 took 85s for subsequential searches, 100% load on one CPU core from MultiCommander.exe

Speed Commander 12-51 (old) finished in 3s for subsequent searches.

In the first run, MsMpEng.exe added 63s to both. But in subsequent runs, everything runs from RAM and without Defender intervention.

What do you think?

Sound very strange. like somethings is ignoring commands from MC.
Copy and Move are same.. move are copy with delete after (unless it is a move on same disk)
(If it is connected as a filesystem.. if it is connected as a portable devies  WPD: then anythings can happens, it is up to the device.)

In the filesytem log you can see that it does  Ctrl+L

Thanks Mathais,
now it is even more strange. I tried the same thing today and it works as expected. No idea why it only copied a single file yesterday, but now is copies them all.
i am using Commander style and the correct number of selected files is displayed.
i am copying photo files from my camera which is connected via USB.
I selected F6 to move, but it only copied. i was able to delete the files on the camera afterwards using Multiple Commander. maybe some security built in the camera card. not a major issue

Thanks for the response.
