About the Evaluation Period

File-Ex is Trialware. This means that you are free to try it out for 30 days. It will be fully functional during that time, so you can try all of its functions.

After using it for 30 days (not necessarily calendar days, but when it's been used on 30 different days), some of the functions will be unavailable. You will still be able to use the basic functions like Copy and Delete, but the advanced functions (Find and MakeDir, and the file history) will not be available unless you purchase the program.

Suggestions, Comments, and Technical Support

We will gladly answer any questions and help you with File-Ex problems during the 30-day free evaluation period. (After the free trial, we will still answer 'simple' questions, but may, at our discretion, require you to order before providing technical support.)

Any suggestions, comments, support questions and bug reports are welcome and encouraged! All questions will be answered promptly. This is offered to both trial version users and paying customers because we appreciate the assistance in making the program better!
