Windows 7: 30 flash drives 5 external drives Need utility that records contents

30 flash drives 5 external drives Need utility that records contents

Greetings !
I am again needing help from my favorite forum.

I have been searching google for the last 30 minutes for a utility that will make a record of what is on all my drives- I am not using the right words for search. This utility will make a record of all my drives contents so I can then search them and find a particulate file and it will tell me what flash drive or external drive I have it on.
I cant keep plugging in all these drives all the time looking for things. I need to be more organized !

Any one know the location of a utility that will work with windows 7 ?
Many thanks

You can use "Directory List & Print Pro" and save a text file listing the contents of each drive.

I also use this for copying and printing directories. You can send the results directly to a printer or send them to an application. Besides MS Office, it also supports Libre Office. You can also save the results as various file formats, including PDF or send the results to the clipboard.

The Pro version doesn't cost much and is extremely versatile.

A simple did e:\ *.* >E.txt will do it or you can specify specific file types you can add all files to database or excel to speed up search

Make sure you put the "/S" on your command, so that it will get all subdirectories:

DIR E:\*.* /s > C:\temp\[nameofdrive].txt

This command will be run from a command prompt.

The above assumes that the external drive is drive E:, and that you have a C:\TEMP folder. Change this information as needed.

[nameofdrive] means that you should pick a name for the flash drive that you are reading, and use that name for the listing for that drive. Take a piece of tape and put the same name on the drive as you are using for the listing.

Might this be worth a shot? Virtual Volumes View Portable | PortableApps.com Seems to be working on Win 7 Pro 32-bit at least. I couldn't get it to work until I'd read the instructions. Looks like it would do what you want.
