SysExporter is a free software from one of my favorite software developers NirSoft. It enables you to grab information like Windows Explorer standard list-views, tree-views, list boxes, combo boxes, text-boxes, and HTML controls from nearly any application that is running on your system. It is probably best to give you an example to demonstrate what the program does. When you start SysExporter you get a list of all applications and folders that are currently running or open on your system.
If you take a look at a folder for instance and select the DirectUI type linked to it, you will find that all files and folders that reside in it are displayed here. You can export the data right away to end up with a snapshot of the data that is in that folder at the time of export. Another example is that you can use the program to export all Registry keys that are currently displayed in the right pane of the Windows Registry editor. The possibilities do not end here though, as it works fine with many popular applications including Microsoft Software such as Office and third party products such as Thunderbird, Firefox and many others.
You can export emails and contacts from Outlook, or data that is displayed in applications such as Autoruns or Process Monitor.The main uses here are to create data snapshots and to work with the data in other programs. It may be useful if the program that the data is taken from does not support the exporting of data. Instead of having to export the data manually by typing it out, you may be able to use SysExporter instead for that task. The file itself can be run from any location and has a size of only 32K.
If you got something to export try it, it could work out well for you and save you lots of time.
