Indexing program suggestion

Hi there!

I was looking for a program the could index a folder and put it in a text file. I found a program called Cathy, but it only does folder names and not files.


Does anyone have anything better?

This site has a lot of Best Windows Freeware lists in various categories. It's a good place to look. I don't use anything like what you're talking about. I use Everything Search that reads MFTs.

Thanks for the rep. Btw for some reason the author's site never got updated(at least the last time I looked) with the latest best version. It's 1.2.1.451a. If you search on it you should find a forum with a download link. Seems the program abruptly went out of development. But I've been using that version for awhile. Seems like the best one.

I appreciate that, they still do have the older version on the site. I'll look up the new one too to see if there are any added features.

Thanks again!

It's pretty much the same. Just faster and more reliable I think. Even though it says "alpha" I've been using it for a long time with no issues.

Is W7 indexing the CD or what...?
I have a CD with some 200 jpg's, and when I put it into my W7x64 comp, sometimes files open very slowly. It seems like W7 or Explorer thinks it must do some job before letting the real app (IrfanView in this case) open the file. See here: http://i.imgur.com/swuS6AY.gif When I double click...
