For those users who have multiple disks with hundreds of files, organizing them may be a challenge. DiskCatalogMaker for Mac works well to organize these files, but most users will not find the limited features useful.
DiskCatalogMaker is available as a free trial version; the full purchase price is $29.99. Download and installation completed quickly, despite the lack of a native installer. Unfortunately, there were no obvious instructions to DiskCatalogMaker, but there are updates available. The program started quickly, but the interface was poorly designed. Instructions would have been helpful for all but the most sophisticated users. There are buttons allowing for searching disks to make cataloging easier. The program performed these functions well, but they would not be very useful unless a user had many separate disks. For that subgroup of users trying to organize hundreds, or even thousands of files, the program may be useful. Loading folders and disks is accomplished quickly and the same goes for making searches. The ability to work with batches of disks at once was also a welcome feature in this type of program.
While functional, DiskCatalogMaker for Mac's limited functions will only likely appeal to a few users who need to organize multiple disks.
Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of DiskCatalogMaker for Mac 6.4.
Fixed a problem that the file name extension '.csv' cannot apply to the name field of the save panel on macOS 10.15 Catalina. (The macOS no longer allow apps to modify the user defined file name.)
