WhereIsIt is an application written for 32-bit Windows operating systems, designed to help you maintain and organize a catalog of your computer media collection, including CD-ROMs, audio CDs, diskettes, removable drives, hard drives, network drives, DVDs, or any other media that Windows can access as a drive.

SecureCRT 4.0.4

SecureCRT gives you an encrypted SSH session with both SSH1 and SSH2 servers. SSH security goes far beyond the basic secure logon, rerouting data or local applications using TCP/IP ports through an encrypted channel. The VCP utility secures file transfers using SFTP. What's new:

Transferring files using bulletin board ZModem implementations caused CRC errors with implementations that did not understand DEL encoding. Added session option "ZModem Encodes DEL".
VCP looks for a newline or carriage return character in order to determine if the ENTER key was pressed when authenticating.
Sometimes selecting menu items, selecting text, or right-clicking to bring up a context menu did not do anything.
SecureCRT could crash when the Raw Log Session option was enabled and there was heavy network traffic.
SSH2: On Windows NT 4.0, sometimes certain keys did not work after authenticating.
