    Hello Michaeldale, First, thank you for your kind review. Second, thank you again for tweaking the source code and make CorruptedPDFinder better suitable to your needs and then willing to share it with the community! As I never expected my little tool would become so popular, I did not create a discussion forum. Now that has changed (see discussion). I would appreciate it if you would post the code there as a zip file but if you feel more comfortable using GitHub that is also fine. I would in that case appreciate a reference to this site. I am planning a new release of CorruptedPDFinder somewhere this year with updated features and I would like to include those that you described, if that is okay with you. I would provide you with the proper credits of course. Please let me know your thoughts on this in the forum. Thank you and kind regards, CG Silva.

    This is a great start. Thank you so much for uploading the source code. I am not a VB programmer but I needed to make some changes to it. - Changed Move to Copy - Skips files that already exist in destination folder - Logs files that are copied and/or skipped. Can I publish the changed code on github or something? Thanks
