Michael Rusakov Hello Patrick,

1. Yes, the WinCatalog 2009 license includes a free upgrade to the upcoming WinCatalog 2010 when it will be released (we plan to release it this autumn).

2. You will be able to activate WinCatalog 2009 on any number of computers where you will work with the program. The activation process does not limit you in a number of computers where you can activate WinCatalog.

Furthermore, we plan to get rid of the activations at all since version 2010.

Best regards,
Michael from WinCatalog.com

Wm Shore The (un-answered) question about whether tags/keywords can be used on photos os very important to me.. so I'm hoping for an answer. Currently I use the xcellent 'SuperCat' program for cataloging CDs/DVDs but it's only for that purpose. This might be useful for from-scratch catalogs..

S B Will WinCatalog allow me to have multiple catalogs on one system, perhaps generating *separate catalogs* to be used for the kids, a professional source art catalog, a web-design screenshots, etc.? Each completely self contained?

Michael Rusakov To Daniel and Wm Shore:

Each item inside a catalog can be assigned with any number of keywords. Some keywords may be created automatically when you scan a disk (for example, WinCatalog creates keywords with Artist name on adding mp3 files).

Keywords has individual branch in the main tree view called My Keywords. If you select a keyword, you will see all linked items.

You can also search using keywords. Click Search meny item, then Search using Keywords (or simply press ctrl+F3 shortcut).

To Nicolai:

> Will this software permit me to attach graphics to individual records?

The reason why we're developing WinCatalog 2010 is an ability to store picture thumnails inside a catalog and an ability to attach thumbnails to any items (files, folders, disk records, etc).

So the answer is 'no' for the current version, but I will since version 2010.

To S B:
>Will WinCatalog allow me to have multiple catalogs on one system...

Yes, each collection is a single file with .wcat extension. So you can create as many collection files as you want.

Michael Rusakov Hello Jean, thank you for your question!

The main advantage of WinCatalog 2012 against most competitors is that it uses real database in the core so it can QUICKLY open collections of any size. In other words, it starts independently fast. No matter how big is your collection file several megabytes or tens of gigabytes.

Plus WinCatalog can keep picture thumbnails inside the catalog and give you an ability to preview them even if the original disc with the pictures is unavailable. This feature makes finding pictures much easier.

Tortuga Hello M.Rusakov
I've been reading info & reviews as I wd be very interested in organizing all the media we have scattered all over the place

1) Most reviews mention only CDs& DVDs. Want to make sure it can be used on external HDDs, HP WHServer, NAS, etc

2) What wd be the support/interface necessary to catalog physical media (books, CDs), the vast majority of which are not in English. Where can I learn more abt how to do this, as I don't know «anything» at all

Many thanks!

Michael Rusakov Hello Tortuga, yes, WinCatalog can scan any drive you can access from Windows environment, including network drive, hard drives and removable media. In other words, if you can see the drive in Windows Explorer, most probably you can catalog the drive with WinCatalog. "Most probably" because Windows Explorer shows some devices as drives (for example if you connect your digital camera) but these are not actually the drives.

To catalog physical media you may use Custom records. WinCatalog is not a book catalog, in general it is file catalog but it gives you an ability to catalog various staff like books, etc.

Using WinCatalog you can catalog your media in any language. WinCatalog 2012 fully supports Unicode, so it will show Japanese, Greek, Arabic, Hebrew, Chinese, Thai, Russian and every other language.

Ric Hi,
1. If one catalogs a local hard drive and an external drive, can this program identify if there are duplicates?
2. Can it tell if certain files exist on the hard drive but not on the external drive?
2. Does it take thumbnails of video files, too?
3. Does it extract any metadata?
4. I don't see any help files on your website. Is anything planned?
5. Is there a comparison of the light vs the standard version?
6. When one makes many changes to a drive (adding or deleting files) that has already been cataloged with your program, does one just "refresh" it or does the program have to re-catalog the entire drive from scratch?
7. Have any of the speed and crash issues mentioned by users on CNET been addressed?

Please let me know before I decide to buy.

Michael Rusakov Hello B.O. $9.99 is just a 20% of $49.95, so the discount is 80% as advertised. Probably you were confused by order page which also offer you to buy SecureSafe Pro with 50% discount. The SecureSafe Pro isn't included into your order by default (it is just advertised). You can see the order total - it is $9.99.

Michael Rusakov Hello Ric Mr., thank you for your questions.

1. You can find files from both drives by some search criteria then combine them by name, by size, etc to see the duplicated entries.
2. No, WinCatalog cannot tell you which files exist on drive A but not on drive B.
3. No, the current version does not grab thumbnails from videos.
4. WinCatalog grabs archive and ISO files contents, EXIF tags from pictures, ID3 tags from music files and comments from html pages and text files.
5. The WinCatalog 2012 and Light comparison table: http://www.wincatalog.com...son-table/
6. When you update (or "refresh) a drive, WinCatalog performs the whole re-scan to see what files were modified/added/deleted. After the refresh it adds new and remove deleted files. If the filename for a file has not been changed, WinCatalog will update other info (for example size or modification date) but will keep comments, tags and other info which you have entered manually for the file.
7. If you are talking about the critical user comment (3rd on the page) please note that it is dated by 2009 and it was about WinCatalog 2009 (version 2.8) not WinCatalog 2012 which is 3.x.

I've just took advantage of this nice offer and I want to say Thank you!

P.S. any chance we can see a portable version to carry the database and settings with the application on a thumb drive? Or maybe there already is a trick to make WinCatalog 2012 portable?

Ric I got a few more questions:

1. I download and installed the 30-day trial version. When I tried to run a report (so as to print or export it), there was no print or export button. Is this a restriction of the trial version?

2. I noticed that once you run a search there seems to be no way to stop/cancel it. That's inconvenient, especially if it ends up being a long search. Am I mistaken?

3. How do we perform and advanced search?

4. If WinCatalog is running and we are connected to a cataloged hard drive or disc, can we launch the file from within WinCatalog? If not, might this be possible in future versions?

Software Babe I also just purchased this software because I have tried it and the software is very good! Loved the price, too!

It does everything it says it will. I have a massive collection of e-books with more than 5 years worth. It cataloged them all in record time. IT WAS AMAZING to watch!!!!

The software also displays any photos, graphics, etc. that go with each item (folder), which my books were already cataloged by folder: Computer Technical, Electronics, Educational, etc.

I did not have to do anything else. Amazing! I was using Calibre, but now I am thinking that maybe this is better. However, I don't think it converts PDF to other formats like Calibre does, I am not sure.

IS THERE A CONVERSION TOOL IN THIS SOFTWARE?

Michael Rusakov @software software, thank you for kind words!

The main purpose of WinCatalog is indexing all files, knowing where they are locating and giving the ability to access these files instantly or almost instantly.

That is why WinCatalog tries to grab as many info as it can, gives an ability to launch files from inside the program (and displays the popup with the disc info if the particular disc isn't inserted) but WinCatalog does not provide any conversion (or any other processing) tools for your files because such kind of functionality is the neighbouring and very specific for every user area.

Michael Rusakov @Tortuga, unfortunately yes. Just because the main goal of WinCatalog is to automatically create an index of all files and folders. Other features are like a bonus today but I'm considering for version 4 to add an ability to catalog, say, books and dvd movies by scaning and entering barcodes and downloading all info from the Internet (Amazon or other provider). Will you be interested in such functionality? If you (and anyone else) do, please submit your comments and suggestions here or via the support form: http://www.wincatalog.com/feedback.html

Thank you in advance for opinion!

Michael Rusakov @Ric Mr., answering your quesitons:

1. The printing functionality is implemented via Reports. First, you generate a report (HTML or CSV), then you open it in your Browswer or MS Excel or other app for viewing, modifying and printing.

2. When you click Search, the button changes it's caption to Stop. If you click Stop it will stop the search. Furthermore if WinCatalog is finding 1000 results it warns you and asks what to to next: stop the search and provide more exact query or continue the search.

3. To perform the advanced search you should first perform the regular search to get ALL results, then filter these results by clicking Filter results.

4. Yes, if you click Execute command on a file, WinCatalog will run the file from the disc. If the disc isn't connected to the computer, WinCatalog will show popup where it will say that the disc isn't accessible and ask you to insert it.

misho Is there a tagging feature?

I saw that in the feature list you mention that "...Each item is associated with a set of keywords to increase the search relevancy". Where are these key words coming from?

Does it search in the text of the files (e.g. MS Word document, pdf) or just the names?
Sep 27 2012 at 6:48pm Copy Link
0
Michael Rusakov @Mihail Garchev, yes, WinCatalog has tags (in WinCatalog 2009 this feature was called Keywords, and now it was renamed to Tags). There are 2 ways to create tags. First, tags can be created automatically when WinCatalog scans the disc. For example it can create tags with Artists names grabbed from mp3 files. Secondly, you can create tags manually.

No, WinCatalog cannont index text in MS Word documents. The curent version of WinCatalog supports only text files and HTML pages.

Tortuga @Mr.Rusakov
Thanks for the info :)
I am going to buy a license anyway, my contribution for a dedicated developer !!

About the scanning &/or barcode:
Yes, if it is easy & possible to implement that kind of feature, it wd be tremendous. Our problem is, always has been, our books, CDs, etc are in 2-3 other languages (non-English), one can gather very little info via Amazon & such. So, maybe its way too much work for you, adding those features, for little results
So very nice of you to offer!

Louis Nemecek Will this app work with Blu Ray disks?
Feb 19 2013 at 8:49am Copy Link

Michael Rusakov Hello Louis, thank you for you question. WinCatalog can work with any disk which can be accessed from Windows Environment. In other words, if you can see the disk and the contents of the disk using Windows Explorer, that means that WinCatalog will catalog this disk without a problem.

So, answering your question, WinCatalog will catalog the entire Blu-Ray disk contents, but it may not detect the disk type correctly (for some drives it may show it as DVD). But this is not a problem because (a) you can always switch the disk type in the disk properties and (b) the disk type does not affect on cataloging, organizing and searching - WinCatalog just displays different icons for different disk types. Nothing else.

Jim B Regarding version and upgrade terms: "Upgrades to future versions of the software will be free up to the next major version and minor versions thereafter." This statement is ambiguous. Free "up to" the next major version could mean that upgrades are only free until the next major version is released. I presume this is still not V4? I had read that V4 was planned to allow portable usage, which would be valuable to me. If this is 3.x, will 4.0 be a free upgrade?

Michael Rusakov Hello Jim, the upgrade policy includes all all minor upgrades, one major upgrade and all minor upgrades within the new version plus a discount to all future major upgrades.

So, if you buy WinCatalog 3.x now, you will get the 4.0 upgrade and all the 4.x upgrades until version 5.

Michael Rusakov @Colin, thank you for your question! Yes you can keep your catalog up to date but WinCatalog does not monitor changes on your disks automatically. Every time you should force WinCatalog to re-scan a disk or a folder.

That is because a usual database (a catalog) contains from several hundreds to a few thousands of disks and most of them are read-only (like DVD-Rs).

You should not worry about re-scanning time. WinCatalog takes time to scan a disk for the first time. Every time when you click Update WinCatalog skips unmodified files (however this behavior can be switched off) and grabs info only from new and modified files, which is much more faster than an initial scanning.

@Paul, WinCatalog 2013 can export data into CSV and HTML formats. The export functionality is called Reports. Please click the Collection Management button (left from the Main tab of the Ribbon Toolbar) and then click Reports to access this functionality. Please note that on the Reports page you can configure all the columns you want to see in the report.

peter schleifer I very warmly recommend this fine program, and if you ever read what is = what I've written about it in outlinersoftware.com, read again, or better, start reading there from the last post, since I was deeply mistaken (but then corrected it there).

In fact, I have external hdd's, sticks, etc., and whilst the sticks can be connected anytime, there is a certain amount of WEAR, of wearing out hdd's, every time, if you just connect them in order to see what they contain.

Now I'm into "collecting things" (YT and such), and I'm much more into collecting than I'm into then looking at those clips again, which is a little bit weird for now, but do we know if some day, these things will not be available anymore on YT?

In the meanwhile, I often download (first to my internal hdd), and I rarely connect the external hdd.

So for such a "workflow" - the correct term would probably be "hobbyflow", but I have got another external hdd with lots of other stuff, and now that I know how good this fine program is... -, WinCatalog is absolutely brilliant, since I can easily look up previous downloads in its LIVE tree structure replicating the tree structure of the external hdd; the "live tree" aspect is what distinguishes this fine product from the whole bunch of "competitors" which all just download the current folder structure into a flat one on screen or on paper, with indentations or not, and that's neither beautiful nor functional when you've got thousands of files to submerge those you need to check for.

Now, you absolutely must go by the previous post, which is Michaels', i.e. the very last one in "previous comments", and where Michael makes an allusion for "Managing - File Items - Update".

I didn't find this command easily, but its' the one that will speed up updates of your folder structure (i.e. whenever you will have some new files added to it, from your inbox, or will have renamed or moved some files there), from 20 minutes or more (which is perfectly acceptable for FIRST reading of the structure into your WC db), down to a mere 20 sec or not even that.

So Michael is perfectly right by saying, "You should not worry about re-scanning time.", and which is one of the most important aspects of such a program.

And this is a brilliant, functional AND visually appealing program that I'll be happy to buy here very soon.

Michael Rusakov @Harold Morris, I have replied to your uninstall report by email to follow up on this issue.

@peter schleifer, thank you for your comment. Just wanted to add that the update (i.e. re-scan) time depends on a number of files that have been changed or added since last update. WinCatalog skips all unmodified files, it parses and grabs the info only from new or changed files. That is why WinCatalog it is fast on update, but if you have a lot of new or modified files it may do the job more than 20 sec.

peter schleifer What's going on? My second commentary disappeared?! So I send it again, without the last part, in which I had recommended particular freeware in order to have WC loaded whenever Windows starts (and which might have the problem here?!):

"Michael's right again, I just wanted to express that for just a few new files, it's real, real fast. My original half an hour (always on a very old pc) was for more than 10,000 videos (and then less than 20 sec. for updating some 30 or so new ones); to give another real-life example, for reading FIRST time, yesterday I had it read (again on that old pc and with usb 2.0) 200,000 non-video files, .exe and such (backup of several sticks, etc.), but which also comprised about 70,000 pics (= thumbs to be created!), in less than 2 hours. For a FIRST read of that much, external stuff, that was a very satisfying time for me (all the more so since I would have acccepted if it had taken all night long, so it was a very pleasant surprise non-video files are read much, much faster than videos even).

Just to be sure, I opened both catalogs today, in order to check, and yes, everything was smooth, all those pic thumbs were there, no crash or other problem (in spite of a file size of about half a giga), and yes, you can select the columnns you want to have displayed.

An then, I described here just one of several possible scenarios to use this fine application. I seriously consider to have it loaded automatically on startup, everyday, it's that useful for me."

(And yes, of course, I bought.)

Answering your question: for each drive WinCatalog keeps two dates: when it has been initially added to the catalog and date of the latest update of the drive. If you open properties of any file or folder from the drive (or a drive root record itself) and then open the "Volume Info" tab, you will see the "Added and Updated" field near the bottom.

Ela S. How could this program be used to catalogize ebooks (all different file formats) and hard books (eg with ISBNs) as well?

Thanks for any idea.
Dec 27 2014 at 5:22am Copy Link

Michael Rusakov @Ela S., unfortunately WinCatalog cannot parse and grab meta data from ebook files like .fb2, .epub or others, so if your main goal is to categorize your virtual (electronic) and real (printed) library, it is better to find another software which was specially designed for such needs.

WinCatalog mostly is a file cataloguer, it may grab a lot of information about your files (archives, pictures, audio, video). It may scan the entire folder with your electronic books and add all files from the folder, but you will be needed to rename all files manually to give them meaningful names. There is a request in the wishes list to implement an ability to parse and grab meta data from ebooks, but at the moment I cannot promise when this feature will be released.

We advertise that WinCatalog can catalog non-file items as well, but this functionality is very simple - you add a record (Custom Item - purple pyramid icon) and manually populate it with any information you want. This functionality is a good addition to the file cataloguing functionality but cannot be considered as a main functionality. Using WinCatalog you can catalog printed books, but if you have ISBN numbers, there are a lot of software on market which can grab all info from Amazon for a given ISBN.

Faisal Humayun Sounded like a great concept. Downloaded the trial to index photos/videos on a 2 Tb backup drive. But the program would crash partially through the scanning process and lose all its progress.

Not sure if it'd be better to stagger backup folders instead of entire disk as a workaround. More work, and less than what's advertised if that's the way to go.

german user is there a limit of amount of files, size, ...? i take my camera everywhere i go and therefor have about 30000 photos from places all over the world. and the files are relative large (raw or 20mp).
Dec 29 2014 at 8:30am Copy Link

Michael Rusakov @german user, there are no actual limits for WinCatalog 2015. WinCatalog uses SQLite database to store the data and keeps all the collection inside a single file. The theoretical limit is 18 terabytes per a collection file (per a database) however practically this limit cannot be reached. The maximum number of records (files and folders) is limited to 264 (2 to the power of 64) which is 18446744073709551616, but this limit is also unreachable because in that case the collection file should be greater than 18 terabytes.

So you can see that 30000 files is a relatively small amount. If your RAW photos are in one of the supported formats, WinCatalog will extract thumbnails for these files and basic Exif tags. This operation may take some time because the files are large, but WinCatalog should handle this job.

Charlotte Sinclaire I am intrigued by your software and have downloaded a trial (actually purchased it in 2009 but never used it). I have created a collection and scanned a drive and a folder, which is great. But now I'm trying to figure out the advantage of having done so. How is this different from using Windows Explorer? What can I get from this software that is better than turning on Details in a window? I'm not being sarcastic! I truly want to understand. So far, I can look at the folders and see what's inside, but I can do that in Windows Explorer. I guess I just am not seeing the advantage, yet, so perhaps don't understand the full purpose of the program? I hope you can explain, as I might be interested if I can see the advantage. Thanks.

Tortuga @Charlotte Sinclaire, Hi
Yes, Explorer shows the details of what you hv on the PC at the moment.
But, as I understand it, the point is to hv a catalog of 'stuff' you possess, but are *not* plugged in.
So for example, you hv different HDDs or DVDs w photos, movies, music, data, bkups,etc Instead of plugging every HDD & DVD to search for what you are looking for, you'll know where it is. Hence, catalog
Sometimes you loan a DVD or left a HDD at work or a bkup in a safe at your parents. But you'll know what data is where :)
Special nowadays w the huge size of HDDs & the amount of gigs we hoard, this little app is very helpful
Softpedia has several in-depth reviews that explains it better than I can
Hope this helps

Michael Rusakov @Charlotte Sinclaire, Tortuga explained the main purpose of WinCatalog well (@Tortuga, thank you!), WinCatalog gives an ability to find files even if the drive is not connected to the computer.

First, you should process all your drives (Internal and external HDDs, DVDs, etc) with WinCatalog and it will remember each file, its attributes and some additional info about the file (thumbnail, EXIF/ID3 tags, and so on).

After that as an optional step you may want to reorganize drives, folders or files for better visual representation, tag or comment some of them.

And, finally, when you need a file which is stored anywhere, you just run WinCatalog, type a search query and find the file. WinCatalog tells you where the file is stored and where, for example on what shelf or in which box the DVD is physically located (in case if you typed this info before). All you need is just grab the disc and access the file.

As a bonus feature you may find duplicates by some criteria and know how many copies of a certain file you have.

To find something in WinCatalog you should use Search feature. Just type something in a search box to find, or use wildcards and search operators for better results. In addition to Softpedia articles I can suggest two more topics from our site:
http://www.wincatalog.com...works.html

Tortuga @Charlotte, Hi
Glad I could help a little. Softpedia is where I always go to understand what is what.
I find their reviews not biased & not "sponsored". Plus they make a point to hv *clean* dwlds or warnings if they can't!
Otherwise, there are so many w PUP, PUA, PUM, I can't keep up :(
I didn't go crazy cataloguing my many many HDDs. Instead, each time I plug a new un-catalogued (is this a word?) one, I scan it then. Little by little they all will be done [soon... I hope *sigh* Never hv time to do everything... I bought it in 2013]
Also, this Dev is quite responsive & listens to users needs (see above).
The price here today is very good, and you can't beat the upgrade policy, which -officially- is 1year, but ... as you can see above even those who bought it in 2012 rcvd a free upgrade, very neat & generous! :)
Gee, I'm sounding like an agent here, I don't even know these people!
I buy apps mainly by small independent developers, just like to encourage them.

I've been on a deadline recently, and am not quite finished with it yet, so won't have time for a few days to mess around with this software, but hope when I do, it will "make sense" to me -- I'm not clear yet on how you use the catalog function for things that are physical (like in a a box) vs. being files on the computer. But no doubt it will come together. If not ... and if they don't close the comments on this page .... perhaps you'll hear from me again, whining and asking for more advice! :)

Do you currently have plans to add previews for font files such as OTF and TTF, PSD files, AI and EPS files, ALL Adobe type graphic files?

Also, is it possible for WinCatalog to show thumbnails of files in an archive?

Thanks!

Michael Rusakov Hello Louis, thank you for your questions. Unfortunately, the short answer is "no" for both questions (at least for the near future).

The current version of WinCatalog gets lists of files from archives, but it does not unpack archives in order to process the contents of the files from inside (extract thumbnails, grab Exit, ID3, etc). Processing files inside the archives is the next level of scanning.

Both suggestions already exist in our internal wishes list, so I'll add +1 to both entries. But no promises on when the features will be released. Thank you!

Michael Rusakov @Mario, WinCatalog does not require any installation routine, so you can simply copy the entire WinCatalog folder from Program Files to usb and start WinCatalog.exe.

There is only one disadvantage: WinCatalog keeps all settings, including your registration info in the Windows registry, so you will be needed to enter a reg.key on every new computer where you start WinCatalog (just once, on first launch).

Additionally, storing a collection file on an usb may slow down a bit because of slow read/write speed of the drive.

Michael Rusakov Amit, this kind of software may be useful if you store your movies, for example, on an external hdd. In that case you will be able to know what movies you have without a need to connect the drive. Furthermore, if you have more than one drive, you will be able to know which one you should connect to access the particular movie.

The same is true for other drive types: DVD, Bluray, etc, and even WinCatalog may be helpful for internal hard drives.

Amit Ok thanks. Then, I wonder what are the advantages of the other types of files it catalogs, like images (.png) and some other files (.txt, .rar) present on the internal hdd ? Because I really want to make use of such a software, if it has too much for files present on internal hdd.

Larry Lambert A couple of questions if I may:

1. You say "Collectors take note: WinCatalog 2015 Professional can be easily adapted for non-digital items. Catalog your books, videos, or even postage stamps and coins!" I've looked at your website and can't find this feature described. Can you give me a link please?

2. In the Fine Print you say "Upgrades to future versions of the software will be free up to the next major version and minor versions thereafter.
Support is provided up to when the next major version is released, and minor versions thereafter." Does this mean that the software can be upgraded to include the next major release but not the one after that although minor upgrades to that later point will be included? Likewise for support?

Thanks in advance.

Louis H @Larry Lambert....

All I have been able to discover, regarding the "non-digital items" feature, working with this program is there is a menu item labeled "Custom Item."

Clicking on this brings up a box to label the item. Then you have to right click on the item name and it brings up a properties box where you can enter the information such as Location, Comments, Tags, and the ability to add a thumbnail to associate with the item.

I can not find any info on this procedure in the included help file, and to use this feature one has to enter all info by hand. I cannot find a way to automate any part of this.

For instance, I have a lot of physical books. I would have to enter the information for each one manually. There is no current feature where I could enter something like the ISBN number (or scan a barcode) and automatically download the information for the book. This would be a VERY helpful feature.

As it is, I would not recommend this program for folks looking for an "easily adapted" way to catalog non-digital items. Digital items? Yes. Non-digital collections? Not so much.

I am currently 3 and a half stars - out of five - satisfied with my purchase for use in cataloging my digital items. (4 Stars would need to have thumbnails for all types of Adobe or other graphic file types. 5 Stars would have to include some level of automation for cataloging non-digital items.) As it exists right now it will definitely help me catalog my digital items and is well worth the $20.

Larry Lambert @Louis H...

Many thanks Louis for taking the time to answer my question about non-digital items. I'm inclined to agree that there are better ways of cataloging. Your assessment is very comprehensive and most helpful.

Like you, i think that to get the digital cataloging for $20 is a bit of a non-brainer.

Thanks again.

Michael Rusakov Hello J, thank you for the kind words! Everyone who purchased WinCatalog 2015 or upgraded to 2015 from any previous version (for free, or paid) will get a free upgrade to 2016 version!

The new 2016 version will contain a lot of improvements, some of them will be internal (i.e. not visible but will make WinCatalog work faster), some of them will improve existing features or add new. For example, in addition to HTML and CSV report types, the new version will have an ability to export data into XML; or have images (thumbnails) in the HTML reports. The other interesting feature may be an ability to assign custom/user defined fields to any item in the catalog or copy the rows of search results as text/HTML to the Clipboard. The list of improvements will not be limited by the features posted here - we have a long list to do in the future updates.

Merry Christmas!

John User I'd also like to say what a fine program this is and thank you so much for the free upgrade coming in 2016.

Of the many programs I have purchased on this and other shareware sites, I think I get the most usage out of this one. I have cataloged and organized my files on my computer and it is very easy to use and maintain.

This is one program that is worth the cost as offered here.

bvssunnydale Hi, (1) I was wondering if thumbnails can be assigned to specific files (rather than randomly and automatically selected) - this would be especially useful for video files? (2) And, are separate (superset) catalogs maintained of subsets of files, DVD's, hard drives (e.g. so that the search can be limited to "Home" or "Office" or "Club" files - each of which might include thousands of separate DVD's and a several hard-drives)?

Ela S. Thanks for offering this program again, following the development for some time now - very interesting eg for all CD/DVD backups. I am interested in some special features:

1. Can own columns be created in the explorer view - eg location of the item (shelf, office, home, borrowed etc)

2. Would it allow to tag ALL file types (doc, txt, mht, mp3 etc)?

3. Is a comment column available for ALL type files?

Thanks - this would be great indeed.

Michael Rusakov @bvssunnydale, the short answer to all your questions is "Yes". You can tag any file or folder and these tags will be searchable. For music files that contain ID3 tags and for ebsoks, WinCatalog creates tags automatically (you can change this behaviour in the program options). For other types of files, you can create and assign tags manually. Open properties of any file and follow to the Tags tab or user drag and drop: drag items (files, folders) and drop them on a tag in the tag tree to link. To manage tags, please click Manage Tags on the Managing tab of the Ribbon toolbar.

To separate subsets of your catalog, you can use virtual (blue) folders and move catalogued DVD disks, folders or individual files to these DVDs. In the future, when you're searching for something, you will be able to limit search results by any collection branch. Just mark the Look In option in advanced search options (below the search box).

You can assign ANY picture to ANY item (file, folder, disk, custom item) in WinCatalog. Please open Properties of the item, follow to the Thumbnail and Load the picture.

Michael Rusakov @Ela S., thank you for your questions!

1. The main idea of the custom fields is to show them in the explorer view. However, for the initial release, it might be not shown in the explorer view (the custom fields will be searchable and will be shown in the right sidebar). But in one of the nearest releases we're going to add them into the main grid (explorer view) as well.

2. Yes, custom fields will be available for all items in your catalog.

3. Yes, you can store any text in the comments field of any item in WinCatalog. By "items" I mean catalog entries: files, folders, disks, custom items, and virtual folders.

4. Thank you for the suggestion, that's a great idea! I have added it to the wishes list for the future updates.

Tortuga Hello Mr Rusakov :)
I have a few questions
1) Long time ago, ~mid-2012, you wrote here abt portability: "Version 4 will have an ability to store all settings (including registration info) inside a local file to make WC portable". Was wondering ... has this been implemented yet (and my old brain missed it), or not?! If not, when?
2) Was wondering, can one have more then one 'My Collection', if so how can it be created? I have been reading all the help, the guide, just can't see how to do it. I want to separate some media that belongs to my husband
Thank you in advance & a very Merry Christmas

Michael Rusakov Hello, Tortuga, glad to hear from you!

Unfortunately, full portability of WinCatalog wasn't implemented (yet), I'm sorry for that. A sort of good news: 2016 version is going to store some settings inside a catalog file, so, some options (for example, scanning options) will be catalog dependent. Can't promise about full portability, but we're keeping this ability in mind.

The current version of WinCatalog can open only one catalog file at the time. If you wish to open more than one catalog, you should run another instance of WinCatalog. At the moment, we did not plan to implement multiple catalog opening for 2016 (however, I should admit that we already have this feature as a suggestion in our wishes list).

For your convenience, I can suggest you create two virtual (blue) folders under My Collection: one for your media and another for your husband's media and move media to these folders. You can move any item in WinCatalog by using drag&drop.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to both of you!

Tortuga Hello Mr Rusakov :)
Thank you very much for your answers!
1) A pity full portability isn't yet implemented. In 'Options' I set the file location to my main external, and bkup to another internal, not 'C'. Are there other files on 'C' that I can/should move/copy?
2) I am guessing you changed WC file extension from .wcat to .w3cat, right?, since I can't find anything under .wcat
3) I didn't know one could launch more than 1 instance. Though, after I did, I was not offered to create a new 'My Collection' ...
4) Most of my fldrs are iconized as it is easier to remember. In 'Options' I set it to add hidden & system files. But it still only shows the same old yel fldrs, none is iconized. Are there settings I can change to make this happen?
5) Are there any videos on how-to use WC? Can't find anything on YT. Though I read the guides/features/etc on the site, videos wd be easier, old brain & all that ... ;)
And happy New Year to you & family

Michael Rusakov Hello Tortuga,

1) All the files to run WinCatalog are located in the "Program Files (x86)\WinCatalog" folder. You may copy the entire folder anywhere and execute WinCatalog.exe to start the program. And, certainly, please do not forget your catalog file(s). No other files are required.

2) We changed the file extension in 2011 after upgrading from WinCatalog 2009 because the file format was changed (since 2011 WinCatalog uses SQLite database engine). So if you're searching for your recent catalog files, please use the "*.w3cat" wildcard.

3) When you launch another instance of WinCatalog it re-opens most recently opened collection file. To switch to another one, please click the Collection Management button (left from the Main tab of the Ribbon toolbar) and click Open Existing, or select another one from the Recent list.

4) Unfortunately, WinCatalog does not import custom icons for the folders. That is why all of them are shown using the standard yellow icon. We did not plan to implement such a feature for 2016, but I will add this to the wishes list.

5) Unfortunately, we do not have tutorial videos at the moment. Please check the user manual (here: https://www.wincatalog.com/help/w3/ or PDF version here: http://www.wincatalog.com...manual.pdf) and please do not hesitate to contact me (via the feedback form: http://www.wincatalog.com/feedback.html) if you have any questions or any ideas (or maybe you can suggest some topics to explain in the manual).

All the best and thanks for your support!

Michael Rusakov Hello Jonny User, thank you for the questions.

WinCatalog can catalog local drives connected to the computer, and drives accessed via a local network.

So, if you can see your USB HDD via a home network from another computer (by expanding the Network branch in the File Explorer), WinCatalog will catalog that drive as well. But you should use Add Folder command instead of Add Disk (because Add Disk command lists only the local or mapped network drives, whereas Add Folder lists the whole file system tree, including the Network).

WinCatalog license does not limit you in a number of computers where you will work with the program. You can install WinCatalog on any computer using your registration key (you will receive your key upon purchase). However, if someone else will use WinCatalog, additional licenses should be purchased.

John User I bought this program several months ago through BDJ and I could not be more pleased with it. I really suggest you download the trial version and check it out as there are to the best of my knowledge no other programs out there that can do what WinCatalog does. It helps you organize all the clutter and then find what you need without spending a lot of time searching.

My favorite feature of the program is the various reports you can generate as well as the synchronization. Also, I should mention WinCatalog has an outstanding technical support staff. They not only respond promptly to questions, problems, etc., but are very open to suggestions to improve the program.

In sum, I think this is one of the best programs I have purchased through BDJ and worth every penny and more.

Lito Quick Quesiton, I am still on the 2015 version and will have to go update it soon since I didn't even notice the new version came out, but does the 2016 version allow me to keep a record of deleted items? That was my main issue with WinCatalog 2015, I could keep track of all I wanted, but if I deleted something or moved it to a drive/directory that I don't let WinCatalog scan when I tell it to update it's records, it deletes it from the database. I do want to be able to search for something and know I did have it and it was deleted.

Michael Rusakov Hello Lito, using WinCatalog 2016 you can see all the deleted items in the synchronization report and save them into HTML or XML. However, after the report closes, all the deleted files will be deleted from the catalog. In other words, the current version does not allow keep track of deleted files. Good news, we already have a similar suggestion in our wishes list and we plan to implement it in one of the future updates (it will be possible to tag deleted files and keep them in the catalog). I will add +1 to that suggestion for you.

Michael Rusakov Hello Norm,

WinCatalog does not monitor changes of the files automatically. Every time you update files on your disks, network locations, or anywhere else you should "tell" WinCatalog to re-scan the location(s). To do this please select your disk or network record inside WinCatalog and click the Update button from the Management tab of the Ribbon toolbar, or from the context menu (right mouse click on the disk record).

Please do not worry about the scanning time: WinCatalog will do the update MUCH faster than an initial indexing operation because it will skip unmodified files and will process only files that are missing in the catalog or were modified since last update/indexing.

Please also note that you can update a certain folder from the disk instead of the whole disk, but since WinCatalog will grab only new and modified files, it is not a big difference in the matter of time.

WinCatalog does not monitor changes automatically because it may have a lot of disks added to the catalog (literally several thousand), and monitoring all of them (despite the most of them are off the PC) might be not a trivial task.

The Mac version. Unfortunately, WinCatalog does not support Mac OS, but we have clients who successfully uses WinCatalog in Mac via Parallels.

By the way, we also tested WinCatalog in Linux (Ubuntu) and it works well with a help of WineHQ.

Michael Rusakov @Jonny User, the current version of WinCatalog cannot track moved or renamed files. WinCatalog uses a full path to the file to identify the file in the file system, so if you move or rename a file, WinCatalog will consider that the 'old' file was deleted (and will show it as deleted in the synchronization report), and the moved/renamed file was added. Unfortunately, all the comments and other metadata *manually* associated with the file will be lost.

Anyway, the ability to track moved/renamed files is planned to be added in one of the next updates (however, can't promise exactly when; maybe in WinCatalog 2017). Most probably, this feature will work only with NTFS drives.

@Sean Brannon, the same for the automatic updates. Since more and more people asking for this feature, we're going to consider implementing it.

Craig S. Hi, I'm confused by the wording about updates/upgrades on "the Fine Print" tab. It reads: "Upgrades to future versions of the software will be free up to the next major version and minor versions thereafter." Does this mean: 1) You get one major version upgrade (for instance 2016 to 2017 free), and then all minor versions for 2017 free), or 2) Only minor versions for 2016 are free?

Whichever way it is, I would recommend re-wording. If it DOES include one major free upgrade, it should read ..."up to the next major version...."

Michael Rusakov @guy t974, for PDF, DOC and DOCX files, WinCatalog creates a thumbnail preview image of the first page. Unfortunately, WinCatalog does not index the contents of these documents, just a thumbnail image.

At the moment, WinCataog does not support libre office files and index them as regular files (it grabs just basic file info for these files).

For other file types, WinCatalog extracts ID3 tags and album covers from music files, Exif tags and thumbnails from pictures and RAW files, media info and thumbnails from video files. It grabs lists of compressed files from archives and ISO images and text data from TXT and HTML files.

Adam P I figured for $5 difference between the personal upgrade and the professional sale here I'd just pay $5 more, since here you get free upgrades to 2018 but buying the personal upgrade was only good for 2017.x.

Tortuga @Michael Rusakov Hello :)
I too have a similar question to Doug Lietz, as I don't quite understand the offer.
If I add the 'Lifetime Upgrade' offer, it comes to almost $100. in CAD !!
It comprises [cad $73.-60%] cad $29.19, PLUS [cad $77.49-20%] cad $62.
Total cad $91.18
I'm confused because it seems we have to buy TWO (2) licenses for the same product: the Regular ~AND~ the Regular with Lifetime Upgrades, which offers only the 20% discount.
Shouldn't the offer be either one ~OR~ the other? With both having today's promo of 60% off?
I tried to buy the Regular w Lifetime Upgrades only, but it still only offers the 20% discount.

If this is correct, I can't afford to upgrade to the newer version!
I do try to encourage small developers even when I don't really need/use the soft, but this is just waaay too expensive !!!

Peace
N.B.: Have you had time to implement full portability, as we discussed ~many~ moons ago?! ;) Hummm, when was it ... 2012 ??!! ;) ;)

Michael Rusakov @Tortuga Hello :) Since the lifetime major upgrades option is our obligation to never charge you for any upgrade in the future, we cannot afford the discount more than 20% off for this option. I hope, you understand and I'm sorry if this looks overpriced in comparison to the main deal. And this option should be purchased *in addition* to the main product.

Concerning to the full portability. As you noticed, this feature was postponed, but we will implement it when the GUI of WinCatalog will be redesigned. Most probably, in 2018 version (but please don't get it as a promise ;-). Thank you! :)

PortablesFan I'd like to second the vote for a fully portable version, please!

Also, the above description mentions "Collectors take note: WinCatalog 2017 Professional can be easily adapted for non-digital items. Catalog your books, videos, or even postage stamps and coins!"
Is there someplace this/these features are described more fully? For example, I don't suppose it can take bar codes, ISBNs, etc. and import info from online? ;-) (Already got it today, not expecting that it can do this--but would be a fantastic surprise if it could!)

Mappi75 I think its one of the best programs of its categorie.

There are not much options one of the well known programs is
"Advanced Disk Catalog" but its development stoped in 2001.

Another is "Where Is It?" but its from 2014.

I'am not sure if i (really) need this software...but i want it ^^
Lifetime Upgrade is a great option too.

The question i ask me:

i have a lots of external drives which much files and on every drive there are
often same files (duplicates).
Will the software help me to organize all these files?

For example if i want to create a new external drive can i organise
the files to this new drive with new good titled folders ?

Thanks for an answer!

Michael Rusakov @StitchTech, any purchase from us includes one major upgrade and all minor upgrades for these versions. When you buy WinCatalog 2017, you're getting an upgrade to 2018 and all minor upgrades within 2018 version, until the 2019 version comes out.

In addition, you can purchase a lifetime major upgrades option that grants you a right to receive all future major and minor upgrades for free forever.

Answering your other questions. WinCatalog uses GhostScript to produce picture thumbnails for PDF files. Unfortunately, there is no option to skip GhostScript in WinCatalog, but any external module can be simply deleted and WinCatalog will correctly handle that. If GhostScript is prohibited on your network, please delete the "gs" folder from WinCatalog program folder.

Concerning the links - WinCatalog follows the symlinks and hard links and scans files and folders there.

Michael Rusakov @Mappi75, thank you for your question! The current version of WinCatalog cannot manipulate files. Currently, it can help you to organize your files, but inside the catalog and you cannot translate this reorganized structure back to a hard drive.

Previously our vision of WinCatalog was focused on the fact that it is a disk catalog software, and it stores information about files. The expected behavior is like a one-way road where the program can get all the changes from the original (physical) files but cannot change or modify anything there.

?However, in the recent time, we started to receive questions like your's and we have already added such a feature to the wishes list for the future updates (?the internal ref# WCAT-351), I will add +1 to this feature for you.

Michael Rusakov @David McCartney, WinCatalog uses GhostScript to produce thumbnails of the first page of each PDF file, and then it reduces the image according to the program settings. If the thumbnail size in the options is set to, say, 256x256, images will be reduced.

GhostScript generates images of the PDF pages in the original resolution, i.e., in a 100% scale.

WinCatalog do not expand thumbnails because this does not make sense. If the thumbnails size option is set to 1920x1920, but GhostScript generated an image, say, 500x500, it will not be enlarged and stored as is.

I purchased a version many years ago, and I was able to determine that they automatically upgraded me to Version 2016 Professional and get a copy of that version!

So I am purchasing today just to support such a good, honest developer. Also the software was quite useful, so I am excited to try the new version.

I didn't even try any external HDs or a different PC. I d/l the current version and have used it (in trial mode, still have a couple of runs I could use of the 10 allowed) and it hasn't had any trouble. It was also faster than the older version was (before it crashed) on the same (large) folder.

Pavi Johnson Yes, I agree with Sid. This is actually terrible! I've never seen VAT added inside the US from a different state - that clearly should never be collected, and I highly doubt the sales tax is being delivered to the proper state(s) by the payment processor.

It's probably Digital River's fault, so maybe you should think of switching to another payment processor. This also caused me to delay a purchase.

Pim Joosten Is it possible to buy the lifetime upgrade option at a later moment? I am going to buy the program, but I think the price for the lifetime upgrade option is rather high, especially when I have not used the program very actively yet (only the trial version for 2 weeks). At this moment I am uncertain whether the lifetime upgrade option will be worth it for me, but it might change when I have used the program for some time.
If buying the lifetime upgrade option at a later moment is possible, do I assume correctly there will be no 20% discount then?

I just downloaded WinCatalog 2017 (naturally it would not accept my 2015 version name and serial number) and I am not seeing that much in the way of improvements, differences, etc. I went to your website and tried to identify what those improvements, etc. might be and I was unable to locate any.

I can find nothing in the help section, nor in the online help, about "Contacts". I would like to keep full details of my contacts offline and a bare minimum online, but I would need fields such as "Home Mobile" "Office Mobile" etc.I had hoped WinCatalog would enable me to do this.

Also, I have imported many music and image files, but none of the files has the "Physical Location" section filled in (under "Properties"). I assumed that field shouuld show the path to the item on whichever disk (hard disk or removable) the item resides. I don't really want to have to fill in the location field for every single file I import! Thanks.

Gary Smith 1) WinCatalog seems suited just fine for knowing where files are located once its initial scan is complete, but what happens if things need to change. For example, if I need to move a subfolder on drive X to a different subfolder on drive Y. Not only did the drive letter change, but also the path to the root of the moved folder changed. Does this require a new scan, or can I give WinCatalog minimal information, such as before and after folder locations, and it be able to update its database? Optionally, I might want to do a rescan of the moved folder, but if I know I did nothing more than a folder move, I would not want WinCatalog going off into a rescan.

2) Can WinCatalog's scan priority be fully controlled? Many applications that do disk scanning can interfere with applications the user is needing in the foreground, even if they advertise that they do not interfere.

3) In 2012, you predicted a portable edition would come out. It has been 6 years. What is the big holdup? (Ref: older comments)

Adam P @Gary Smith If you move a folder, you have to update the directory where that directory was, and scan the new directory. As of 2017, WinCatalog doesn't detect moved folders.

So if you move x:\music to y:\misc\music, you would have to update x:\music & y:\misc

Craig S. Trialing your software today. Trying to catalog an external USB 3.0 hard disk. My CPU utilization is pegged at 100% during scan, and my computer basically unusable during that time. Also, it's taking FOREVER even though I told it specifically not to create thumbnails for pictures or video. Even with these options, it's showing me thumbnails during cataloging, and it's taking about 1-2 seconds for each .OGG file it's cataloging.

Is this normal performance? Am I missing something?

Richard Blake Colin,
Physical Location: see https://www.wincatalog.com/features.html
Scroll down to section 'Insert Disk dialog saves your time'. The image there shows a physical location. It appears that you enter the value, but you enter it once per physical disk - CD, thumb drive, hard disk partition, etc.
Contacts: on the same page scroll to section 'Adding contacts and managing loaned disks'. This appears to be another comment for the physical disk, when it's away from its 'physical location'.

Q for M Rusakov: Would it be feasible to give WinCatalog the capability to perform MOVE, RENAME, DELETE and RENAME actions (for files and directories), through GUI and command line, so that it can perform these actions itself and update its catalog at the same time. Then user would not need to keep track of operations he had done through Explorer or cmd prompt and do rescans for each at a later time?
Can WinCatalog insert itself into Windows Save and Save As operations, so that it can update its catalog automatically when I create or update files using other applications (if there is a catalog for the disk on which the operation takes place)?

Michael Rusakov @Kiwidave, WinCatalog supports FLAC files, please open Program Options, follow to the File Processing page under Scanning and find the "Media information for video files section". Please don't be surprised by "video" section: WinCatalog uses MediaInfo plugin to extract metadata from video files and the plugin also supports FLAC files.

Please add the ".flac;" and other extensions (starting from the dot and ending by the semicolon) the list of supported extensions. Click OK when done. This will add the .flac extension to the list of supported extensions. That is it. Next time you scan a drive or a folder WinCatalog will process .flac and other files that match the extension list and extract ID3 tags and other media info.

Michael Rusakov @Gary Smith:

1. Currently, WinCatalog uses the full file path to identify files. If you move any file, no matter, inside or outside a disk, WinCatalog will interpret changes as following: the file on the old location was deleted, the file on a new location was added (it will be marked as new). So, if you have any comments, tags or user-defined fields attached to the file, this information, unfortunately, will be lost. In our wishes list, we already have a suggestion to track moved items during a single update session (the files should be moved inside one disk), but this feature is quite complex and wasn't implemented yet.

If you don't have any info manually attached to the file, there is not a big problem that WinCatalog moves files by deleting and re-adding. Furthermore, WinCatalog tries to speed-up the scanning process by skipping the unmodified files. So, if you move or add something to a previously cataloged drive, the updating process will be finished much faster than the initial scan (the updating time depends on a number of the modified files).

2. WinCatalog scans drives in a normal priority since the disk usage is a bottleneck, there is no need to use more CPU.

3. Unfortunately, the full portability wasn't implemented yet.

2. Concerning updating the changed files. WinCatalog does not monitor file changes automatically because it may have a lot of disks added to the catalog (literally several thousand), and monitoring all of them (despite the most of them are off the PC) might be not a trivial task.

Michael Rusakov @Richard Blake, you can use the custom items (a purple pyramid icon) to add a non-file item into the catalog. Then, you can assign any fields to these items using user-defined fields, and even set a thumbnail to it, so your books, coins or other items will even have a picture. You can move and group your custom items into virtual (blue) folders, add tags. You can even mark these items as loaned and set the location / sub-location for them.

Michael Rusakov @Colin McAllister, the Contacts tab allows managing contacts for the loan feature. In WinCatalog you can track to whom you borrowed a disk.

The Location field saves the disk physical location. Imagine, you have DVDs and keep them in soft wallets. You can save the wallet number as a location, and a page number as a sub-location. WinCatalog will combine these two fields and will show the complete location as, for example, "Wallet 12 / page 4".

The file location (the full path to the file) is shown on the File Info tab, the information about the disk where the file is located is shown on the Volume Info tab of the Properties. There is no need to add this info manually, WinCatalog grabs it for every file.

Adi Abir I have the 2016 professional edition and it always stops cataloging my files at the same point. I suspect that the program can catakog only a limited number of files. What's the limit on the 2017 professional edition?
Mar 7 2018 at 3:23am Copy Link

Michael Rusakov @Adi Abir, WinCatalog has no any practical limits, it should add any number of files. Furthermore, in comparison to the 2016 version, 2017 introduced a completely new scanning module that was rewritten from a scratch. The new module brought more stability and a higher scanning speed. You can try 2017 version before purchasing the upgrade and easily revert back to 2016 if you decide not to stay on 2017.

Just in case, the download link for 2016 (16.5): http://www.wincatalog.com...tup165.exe

Colin McAllister Thanks for the replies @Richard Blake and @Michael Rusakov. While I can understand the "physical disks stored offline" explanation, I still feel the program is missing out.

Michael - I keep my current images on my C:drive and (usb-attached) S:drive (shared/working backup items) and I:drive (image archive). I have added folders from each drive to the Catalog folder in WinCatalog. If I click an image file inside a folder in WinCatalog, I get the General and File properties below the thumbnail. The "Physical location" info isn't there though, hence I can't easily tell if that image is the one from the C,S or I drive, even though the "File location" field states "Pictures\2006-Glasgow Visit\.Fred singing-001"

If however I right-click an image and choose its properties, the "Volume Info" tab has the Root Path info there! It would be very helpful if the root path info could be added to the "Physical location" info. That way if I have the same file on two or more usb drives I can instantly see which drive I am viewing. Just a suggestion. Thanks.

Thank you for clarifying again.

@bdj customers
I´d highly recommend buying this software and supporting the development of this great piece of software if you have to handle with more than very few data media. It´s the best utility for disk cataloging (regardless if harddisk, optical media, usb-sticks, sd-cards,...) I´ve ever found .
It´s like having the great search-utility everything at your finger-tips for all archived / offline media. Version 18 is even faster than previous versions.
Additionally and important - userfriendly license , installation on all owned pcs, no online activation, no subscription; ,...),discounted upgrades, friendly and reliable support. A really good investition

Michael Rusakov @bvssunnydale, using WinCatalog you can create as many catalog files as you want (and under a single license you can install WinCatalog on any computer where you work with the program). However, unfortunately, WinCatalog does not allow opening several catalog files simultaneously in one window - if you want to open more than one catalog file at a time, you should run two instances of WinCatalog.

Each catalog file you create can host almost unlimited number of entries, including the unlimited number of tags. You can create as many tags as you need and assign any number of entries to each tag.

Please note that WinCatalog also has virtual (blue) folders. You can consider them as categories. Virtual folders help to organize your catalog file visually. The main difference between tags and virtual folders in the following: one entry (a file, a folder, or a disk) may be linked with any number of tags, but can be located only in one virtual folder.

Lewis Is there a way to filter files by any of the property types, such as Comments, Tags, Partial filenames, etc?
Also, can I put the catalog on a fileserver and have it shared by a few different users?
Aug 17 2018 at 9:41am Copy Link
0
Michael Rusakov @Lewis, unfortunately, in the current version of WinCatalog you can't filter files in the main view, the only way to display files by some criteria is to use Search and limit the search results by a certain branch.

Answering your second question. Yes, you can put the catalog file anywhere, including a fileserver and access the catalog file from other computers.

WinCatalog keeps all the data for the catalog inside a single file with .w3cat extension which is SQLite database. You should know that network access reduces the program's speed (because SQLite is a local database and requires a frequent disk accessing, so it will send a lot of data over the network). The second issue is that accessing SQLite database over a network in a multi-user mode may harm the database (this is the warning from SQLite developers).

Anyway, a lot of our clients use WinCatalog over local networks, even simultaneously. WinCatalog tries to handle this and prevents multi-user writes to the database by using a kind of a semaphore (a simple text file where WinCatalog keeps the info if anyone updates the catalog). Multi-user accessing in the read-only mode is OK and will not harm the database: most of the time clients use WinCatalog in a read-only mode (they browse or search for files).

Thank you for your prompt response. I was just experimenting with it and have a few of other questions. Can you resize the thumbnails for PDF files (or any other I guess) and if I change the 1st page on a PDF, is there a way to update the Thumbnail? Does it show Thumbnails for Word documents?

Michael Rusakov @Lewis, when you update a drive, WinCatalog actualizes the info about the files modified since the previous scan or update. For the PDF files, if the file was changed, WinCatalog will generate new (actual) thumbnail of the first page. Please note, that if the last modified date for the file or a file size were not changed, WinCatalog will consider that the file wasn't changed.

You can turn this behavior on or off in the Scanning Options: for the selected scanning profile, please find the following option on the General Scanning "While updating a disc, skip the unmodified files (speeds-up the updating process)".

You can also change the size of the thumbnails on the File Processing page of the Scanning Options for the selected scanning profile. Find the "Thumbnail Size (in pixels)" option in the "Pictures and digital photographs" section. Currently, WinCatalog uses this option for all generated thumbnails.

Please note, that changing this option affects on future scans only and will not change the size of the thumbnails that are already in the catalog. Changing this option also does not force updating the unmodified files, so you should turn the "skip unmodified files" option temporarily off.

For the MS Office documents, unfortunately, the current version of WinCatalog cannot guarantee the thumbnails grabbing because WinCatalog completely relies on the File Explorer, and if it provides thumbnails (if you can see the thumbnails in File Explorer), WinCatalog will grab them. Otherwise, unfortunately, it will not.

Ed Ward Michael - have you implemented the feature requested below? Retaining tags even when a file is moved is a must have for me. Thank you!

The thumbnail for 1st page of pdfs is a very nice feature!


RESPONSE TO A PREVIOUS QUESTION:
1. Currently, WinCatalog uses the full file path to identify files. If you move any file, no matter, inside or outside a disk, WinCatalog will interpret changes as following: the file on the old location was deleted, the file on a new location was added (it will be marked as new). So, if you have any comments, tags or user-defined fields attached to the file, this information, unfortunately, will be lost. In our wishes list, we already have a suggestion to track moved items during a single update session (the files should be moved inside one disk), but this feature is quite complex and wasn't implemented yet.
Jan 28 at 7:47pm Copy Link

Michael Rusakov Hello Ed Ward, glad to hear from you again! Unfortunately, the feature of automatic tracking moved (and renamed) files wasn't implemented yet. For the next 2019 update we decided to focus on real file operations - the initial 2019 release (will be released at the end of March or at the beginning of April) will have the ability to delete real files from the disk - this is the most wanted feature at the moment - after that we will collect feedback on this feature and decide where to move further (in other words, if the other two more complicated features are still needed - moving and renaming).

As for the automatic tracking of moved and renamed files, this is a quite complicated feature, and since 2019 is mostly (but not only) "the year of file operations", we will start experimenting on that after the initial 2019 release.

Brian W Feature request: Once you have the direct file operations incorporated in 2019, then expanding the duplicate finder features (ex. compare 2 folders) would be greatly appreciated so that after finding duplicates we don't need to move to a separate duplicate finder program.

Most useful for me is identifying duplicate FOLDERS. Few de-dupe programs include this feature but it really speeds things up for someone like me who has many years of backups on various external drives.

(My dream is a "consolidate" program that can intelligently combine folders and de-dupe files, so that all of my photos from all drives can be moved to a single "photo" folder with sub-folders (or tags) indicating the folder tree they came from.)

Mr Dave I need to agree with Ed Ward. I reorganize and move files often. It's best to record all I know about a file when I first get it, not weeks later when I try to move it to it's final home. Same for backups or additional copies. Why catalog something if the results are inconsistent? To me, a true key for a file should be an MD5 or SHA hash tag, possibly combined with file length. When scanning or updating a disk, if a duplicate name is found but with a different hash tag, the program could flag it so user can claim it's a new file so don't copy added information from old file) of if it's an updated version (so then it would be helpful to copy the old information into the database for the new file).

I know this is a complex issue and different users have different needs. But a file's name and location are simply external attributes of the file, same as a description or cover photo... I tend to not use catalog programs like this because of the effort needed to really build a useful catalog, all the added work to maintain things, and the risk that the program won't work in the next Windows update so all my work is gone. Is the database proprietary, or could I access it with Libre Office or MS Access or some other relation database program? If I move 500 files to a different folder or disk, it would not be hard to update the location in a database program before the next run of WinCatalog.

I still use an OLD program called VVV Catalog for keeping track of what's on CDRs, DVDRs, external hard drives and flash drives. Just to help me find things faster than inserting a bunch of disks. Maybe that's all WinCatalog is intended for, but I like that I can add my own information about the files and might buy the program just for that. But not if I need to recreate everything when a file is moved or edited. I don't have time to do stuff more than once!

Michael Rusakov @Scott Youngman, instead of adding a whole disk by clicking Add Disk button, you can click Add Folder and select a folder to add to the catalog. You can add several folders from one disk to WinCatalog. Furthermore, you can add just a single file, if you wish. Unfortunately, the current version does not have the ability to scan only certain file types (we have such a suggestion in our wishes list, I have added +1 to this feature for you). The current version has the opposite feature: it can exclude files and folders by a mask from the scanning.

As for the non-digital items - you can add Custom Item to the catalog (a purple prism icon), then you can assign a thumbnail (a picture) to this item, create as many fields as you wish, manage linked tags and set the location. So, using WinCatalog, generally, you can catalog any physical items (books, VHS tapes, collections of baseball cards or anything else you can imagine).

Michael Rusakov @Mr Dave, thank you for sharing your thoughts with us, I have also stored your comment for the "tracking files" feature! The main issue with SHA hashes (and even with MD5) is the calculation speed which can be relatively fast for internal drives but may be an issue for the drives connected via slow ports or via USB hubs that may reduce the speed. Anyway, at least this feature may be implemented as an optional calculation for those who don't need that.

Would it be possible to load in the first 255 characters out of text files, and make that readable even when file is offline? I normally create a text file most things I download, with the source and description. Even the first 255 characters of that would be helpful, and takes less storage than a picture thumbnail. Maybe 512 characters, or a thousand? Length could be set as a user preference.... I hope to try our the demo version later today!

Michael Rusakov @Mr Dave, thank you for another suggestion! This feature was implemented in WinCatalog since one of the early versions (approx. in 2002) and it works exactly as you described: by default it grabs first 255 characters of each TXT file, but you can change this number to any you want or even set it to unlimited (in that case, the whole text will be stored). WinCatalog puts the grabbed text into the Comments for the file record in the catalog and this text (and all the other info WinCatalog grabs about files) is available when the disk with the file is not connected to the computer (i.e. when the file is offline).

You can configure this feature on the File Processing tab for the selected scanning profile (please look for "Text files processing" section).
