TextMorph is a free text editor supporting Unicode / UTF-8 (similar to Notepad), but offering additional features ("tools") to quickly change and "format" text either on the open file or across many files at once. Quickly clean up text/emails, convert text to/from HTML, search and replace by words or multiple paragraphs, change upper/lower case, etc. all with the click of a mouse. You can create your own custom tools that utilize the pre-set tools (or your own programs that interface with TextMorph) and you can apply tools to a large group of files at once. This makes TextMorph an ideal program for people who work with large numbers of text files or archives of HTML or text content, as it can quickly and easily apply changes to all files. Easy to use, but powerful including command-line processing of files.

NTFS Hidden Data Finder is a free sysadmin/advanced user tool that can search an NTFS-formatted drive or folder for alternate data streams (ADS), extended attributes (EA), and/or reparse points and log the found data to a report text file you can view. While there are other tools out there, they are typically more limited and only work on a specific type of data such as alternate data streams. All 3 types of data that this program can find are data that can be attached to files/folders in NTFS but that may not be visible to most programs or users. Windows itself uses all 3 types for legitimate purposes and you should not be surprised that this program will find such on your system and nor should the presence of such necessarily concern you. This GUI & command-line tool is straightforward but is intended only for use by system administrators and those knowledgeable about what they are looking at/for.
