Do you need to create a spreadsheet or list out of files that are on your computer? DDFileCatcher can help you do that with ease and aplomb. Instead of tediously selecting, copying, and pasting file names from Windows Explorer into an Excel document or other list, DDFileCatcher saves tons of time and effort by making it easy to create file lists simply by dragging your files from Windows Explorer into its interface.
This program's interface is clean and simple. The design is uncluttered and easy to read, which is a definite benefit in a program designed to manage long lists of data. DDFileCatcher is fairly self-explanatory, but there's an extensive Help file for those who need a little assistance. The Help file includes helpful screen shots that show you how to navigate the program. When creating lists of files, DDFileCatcher gives you the option to select which parts of data to include, such as file extensions, paths, and creation or modification dates. There's an option that lists the entire contents of specific drives on your computer, which is an especially handy feature. Also of note is the program's ability to save file lists as CSV files and export them into a spreadsheet or database. DDFileCatcher will also display lists in plain text and XML, which could be helpful for Web developers.
This is a 30-day trial version of the software. DDFileCatcher is a useful, time-saving application for listing a computer's files, and we recommend it.
DDFileCatcher makes lists of files with file properties in different formats. Copy Windows file names and over 700 file properties to the Microsoft Excel and Word. DDFileCatcher recognizes existing file lists in Excel and Word, to add more files to the lists. You can also save file lists to OpenOffice Calc and Write, XML, HTML, CSV or tab-delimited formats, and to the Clipboard, for pasting into documents. Automate collection of files using search instructions, for listing all the files in a folder or in a folder tree, or just pick individually files from one or more folders. With DDFileCatcher, you can take an existing file list document and make it into a template which DDFileCatcher will fill the list with files and the chosen file properties. DDFileCatcher uses several ways of finding files and folders to list, including drag and drop and context menus from Windows Explorer, file and folder dialogs and repeatable saved search instructions. To help you choose from over 700 file properties to display, DDFileCatcher shows you example outputs for each property. All settings can be saved in DDFileCatcher's built-in database for later reuse to repeat file listing tasks.
