  • Cataloguing any disk and any file.

Catalog all your disks (CDs, DVDs, BDs, CD-Audio, USB...) and then find down any file at once. This program stores all the information of the folders and files of your PC disks in order to be able to consult it without having the disk inside the PC. Besides, it allows the user to catalog music CD-Audio discs (manually or automatically with Internet).

The information stored from your files and folders is all the information useful to store in this kind of programs. Name, size, last modification date, creation date, attributes and the list of nested files that it may have... In addition, the most important data from many multimedia files will be extracted.

Naturally, the cataloguing is automatic: insert the disk in the reader, indicate it to the program together with the desired name for the new disk and press the button. The disk will be catalogued in a few seconds. If you wish to see the aspect of the cataloguing screen, press here.

You can also create catalogs from a particular folder, and from all its sub-folders. Finally, and regarding the creation of catalogs, we must point up the "Re-catalogue" option, intended for RW discs, which allows us to actualise the modifications needed in the catalog without missing the descriptions we may have made.


  • Compressed file support. Up to 16 formats! De-compression.

Besides the files and folders that you find in your disk, the program can scan the files compressed inside others (ZIP, RAR, CAB, ACE, JAR, ISO, 7Z, ARJ, LZH, LHA, ARC, ZOO, PAK, TAR, GZIP, SQX) up to a total of sixteen different formats (practically all of common use). Including the self-extracted of many of them!.

The files with nested files inside will appear in bold and their content can be seen with a simple double click. They are even marked with a special attribute. If you wish to see the aspect of the list nested files screen, press here.

It allows also to decompress all these formats. Finding out compressed files from wich we havenīt got a decompressor will never again be a problem!.


  • Multimedia file support: six types, more than 33 formats.

Another great option of the program is that it can catalogue some inner data of the most important multimedia formats. To be precise, six types of file formats are supported: Documents (PDF, DOC, DOT), Bitmap Image (BMP, DIB, RLE, PCX, GIF, JPEG, JPEG2000, TIF, TGA, PNG), Audio (WAV, AC3), Music (MP3, WMA, OGG) and Video files (AVI, WMV, ASF, MPG, HAV, FLI/FLC), Executables (EXE, DLL, OCX, DRV). Besides, the program provides its own routines to process these files, depending not on other software.

  The stored data is: 

Document files: Number of pages, Subject, Title and Author.
BitMap image Files: Resolution (height x width) in pixels and Colour depth.
Audio Files: Length, Sampling frequency, Sample size, Number of audio channels and type of format.
Music Files: Length, Frequency, Quality, Number of audio channels, Year, Track, Genre, Author, Work and Title.
Video Files: Length, Resolution, Number of audio channels, Codec and Quality.
Executables: FileVersion, CompanyName+LegalCopyRight, ProductName+ProductVersion and Description+Comments.

Note: not every variant of every format are supported by the program.

  • Powerful searching functions.

Use the five types of textual searching to find programs or files. From the classical searching of ordinary text (exact), to the approximate (with mistakes) sophisticated searchings, including, of course, three types of searchings with wildcards (similar to the operator LIKE of SQL): wildcards, superwilcards and Perl5 RegExp.

The program will search even among the names of collections and catalogs, and any other textual data. And also, of course, it will search into the descriptions of file/folder. Likewise it has functions to search every catalogued multimedia data.

There are three modes for the search screen: easy mode, advanced or multimedia mode.

If you wish to see the screen for easy search press here. Finally, if you wish to view the screen with all the available searching options, click here.

In addition to textual searching, the files can be looked for:

- By any combination of attributes.
- By the date of the last modification (initial, final or both).
- By the date of the creation (initial, final or both).
- By the size of the file (minimum, maximum or both). 
- By file extension.

Other important options of the searching are:

- It may look for in names of files or folders or only files.
- It may limit the searching to a type of file (extension).
- It may exclude the nested files from the searching.
- It may limit the searching to a single catalog.
- It may limit the searching to a single collection.


  • Intuitive and versatile.

It uses all the graphic resources of Windows to be handy (grids, buttons, tabs...) and other standard actions of the keyboard and the mouse: F2 to modify, Del to remove, Enter to accept, double click to open... Very intuitive. The navigation screen among catalogues is very similar to the Windows Explorer in the detail view.

You also have a complete help file, in 32 bits CHM format, it will help you to become familiar with the most advanced options. Every screen available have a button to take you to the corresponding chapter of the Help file.


  • Other functions: Descriptions, collections, open...

The program enables the user to add a small description (sentence) to each catalogued file (or folder), to be able to describe its content if its name wasnīt explicit enough. Obviously, every textual searching options will also be applied to the description.

Collections are tools to arrange the catalogs as you please. Actually, they are folders from the hard disk where you can store the catalogs. It has functions like cut and paste to move catalogs or collections, you can also create new collections or erase them. The amount or levelīs space of the collections is not limited in any way.

In the program grids where files are shown (the catalog and the searching ones) there are buttons to open files. In particular there are five options:

- Opening from the NotePad.
- Opening with the standard program in the system.
- Enqueue in WinAmp playlist.
- "Open with..." dialogue, for seleccting the program to execute the file.
- Open Windows Explorer in the file folder.

The best aspect of this option is the fact that if the file is available, in any of the letters of the computerīs unit, it will be opened directly, no matter if it is or not the unit from which it has catalogued. If the file is not inside the computer, as it was in a removable disk, you will be asked to insert the disk in any unit, after this you will be able to repeat the process in a successful way. 

 The program includes other useful functions or characteristics, as for example:

- It is not allowed to catalog one same disk twice.
- Small. It consumes a bit more than 8 MB of hard disk.
- Hardly needs installation. It copies only  few files in their own folder.
- Uninstallation full and automatic.
- Safe. It doesnīt modify any aspect of your Windows system.
- Versatile. Catalog files are compact and independent for each disk.
- Reliable. Exceptions treatment: the program recovers from many errors.
- Compatible with all Windows of 32 bits: 95, 98, ME, NT4, 2000 and XP.
- The program has built-in multimedia & compressed files routines, depending not on any other software.
