The old store free archive

At one time many moons ago the old DAZ store had a free archive that you could download items from. I know they are no longer available from DAZ but I am reinstalling my DAZ Studio content and I have a copy of these files. Unfortunately, they are mixed in with a lot of other files. Does anybody have (or can point me to) a list of the items that were in that freepository, so that I can figure out which files to pull out and run from my jumbled up folder?

Thanks for any help.

Edited to correct nomenclature (i.e. free archive instead of freepository)

    Thanks Vaskania.
    That's just what I needed and will help me separate the free archive files from a lot of other store purchases that DIM would have already installed more up-to-date versions of.

    It's really to bad that we no longer have access to them. Even though they are old, there was really good stuff there. And I'm glad I saved the installer files I downloaded.

    I went and downloaded them all before the announcement that they'd be gone when the store changed over. I only wish I'd have thought to save the image previews too.

    I started doing that with everything I purchased here and other 3D stores (as well as freebies) a long time ago, but still hadn't thought to do it when I first started purchasing items back in 2004, so I had to go back and get them. I think I only missed a few on the old Poser Pros site, but wished I had done it sooner. It felt like it was taking forever to get them all, but it's been a lifesaver at times when I can't remember the name of something, but can picture it perfectly.

    I thought nothing of it at a the time. Most of the things I was downloading were in zips so I was able to use the icons inside as a reference, and as far as store purchases I was able to reference the product pages themselves. Now that a lot of the content I own from here has been converted to zip, the old freebie archive are the only products I have that are still in the old format.

    I do however have promos for all of the zip files that came with Sparky's $10/all deal that he offered some time last year I believe it was.

    I have the single pages, but cannot access right now.

    Still you might want to know I posted screenshots of the freebie overview pages some time ago in this thread http://www.daz3d.com/forums/discussion/9846/ , that give a good overview about what an item is at least. Think about saving those with your items, I'd say.

    Oh, that's perfect! Thanks!

    Nice going bad4u. I remember those archives so well. I just never downloaded everything that was offered.

    ...what's sad is I have a lot of these backed up on a DVD but many of the files on the disk were corrupted for some reason.


    I think Daz should open this up for at least one more time

    I've been printing product pages to PDFs for everything I buy for years now, and glad for it, although it takes a chunk of life to maintain it.

    OT - It's quite interesting watching the price action game, as 'retail' prices go up, letting specials still net the same price at the end. Some of my original full retail prices are less than the 50% off sale prices these days. Not just here. I don't think our local Macy's chain ever sells anything at full retail anymore - their up-pricing and stacking discount schemes are at least as krazeee as DAZ!

    Back on topic, just yesterday I found that one of the 'big three' vendors has discontinued a bunch of their 'deep-freeze' items that I thought would be there forever (that category went from 52 pages to 17). Notably, the web-pages that went with those items are gone, including specs, dependencies, etc., although a small preview image is still available on the download page.

    maybe daz will provide a 'build your own catalog' option in the DIM that creates a complete PDF of your current item-list... hint hint...

    cheers,

    I eagerly await the day daz announces "the old archive available for a limited time!"

    Perhaps a summertime special like they had a couple years ago (or maybe it was just last year even) when they had a new free item or 2 every day for a couple weeks.
