Advanced CATaloguer - easy-to-use cataloguing software for
searching out files stored on all kinds of digital media (from hard
drives through all kinds of modern removable media to floppy disks).
This utility keeps track of the contents of any CD, DVD, floppy disk,
local or network drive, enabling you to quickly find any file.
Advanced CATaloguer supports all kinds of media recognized
as drives by Windows and lets users include into the current database
individual folders or even files from any media. This feature enables
users to create individual catalogs for various kinds of files (e.g.
a catalog of music files, a document library, a database of all
files related to some project etc.) - even if all files are stored
in various directories on one drive. The program features powerful
search capabilities: it can perform the search using Boolean expressions,
find files by name, description, notes or keywords, using the size
and date limits - all this without physically accessing the disks.
When a file is located, you can view its properties, open it, or
launch Windows Explorer to its parent folder.
Although Advanced CATaloguer has been primarily designed
for organizing removable media, it has a number of other uses:
- The Find Duplicates feature lets users locate duplicate documents
on the hard drive: in addition to file name, size and modification
date/time comparison Advanced CATaloguer compares the files
by their CRC32 code, making it absolutely impossible to miss identical
or confuse different files.
- Advanced CATaloguer combines powerful search capabilities
with file management functions, enabling users to perform operations
(move, copy, delete) on groups of certain files (for example,
a user can find all documents, modified after a certain date -
no matter where they are stored - and copy them to one folder
for backup purposes).
- The program's synchronization features allow using it for monitoring
changes on a disks: when a user performs synchronization of data
on a disk (or in an individual folder), all new, modified and
deleted files are shown.
Other program's features include the ability to read other cataloguing
software database formats (currently - the databases created Advanced
Disk Catalog (www.elcomsoft.com)),
powerful reporting capabilities, password-protecting the catalogs,
checking for updates, multilingual interface (more 20 languages),
support for Windows XP themes and more.
