Keep track of your files with DigiCat

Create catalogs of files with this easy-to-use program.

Between external hard drives, USB drives, laptops, desktops, CDs, DVDs, and other storage locales, it can be hard to keep track of which files are stored where. DigiCat is a simple program that allows you to quickly and easily create catalogs of disk contents, making it easy to determine where files are stored when you need them.

The program's interface is fairly intuitive, though it took us a few minutes of poking around to figure out exactly how things worked. We tried to access the Help file, but, despite the presence of a Help tab, the program had no documentation. Getting started was easy enough, though; we simply chose the drive we wanted to index from a drop-down menu and then clicked Scan. The program quickly created an index of files listing each file's volume, directory, name, size, and date and time of creation, which we were then able to save for later access. We especially liked the fact that the program can index inside ZIP and RAR files. The Find feature lets you search for items using keywords. We tried DigiCat to index a folder on our hard drive as well as the entire contents a USB drive, and it worked as expected both times. If you frequently find yourself thinking, "I know I have that file, I'm just not sure where," DigiCat can create a comprehensive record of all your files and save you time and frustration.

DigiCat comes as a ZIP file. It installs politely but leaves a folder behind upon removal.
