Publisher's Description:

DDFileCatcher - Complete redesign and rewrite of DDFileCatcher. Copy Windows file names and hundreds of file properties and pieces of file information,to the Clipboard and disk files. Saves file lists to Microsoft Word and Excel , OpenOffice Calc and Write, XML, HTML, CSV or tab-delimited formats. Automate collection of files and outputting them using the configurable command file feature. Use custom templates to format the output file list.

DDFileCatcher catches files, shortcuts or folders dropped onto it from programs such as Windows Explorer, My Computer or Windows dialogs. It turns the files into full file paths. Hundreds of pieces of file information can be listed including MP3 information, all image file properties, and all Microsoft Office document properties. Can output hyperlinks to Excel, OpenOffice Calc and HTM, HTML code for images with a range of sizes. The hyperlinks can by used to open files from Excel such as play music tracks. Can list thousands of files at a time. List all the folders on a drive. No need to open another program and navigate to folders, just use Windows Explorer. It's like Windows Explorer is a supermarket, and DDFileCatcher is a shopping basket, just pick the files you want from anywhere and drop them onto DDFileCatcher. Copy one file name, a complete folder or from several folders, automatically seaching subfolders, the result of a file search, and make a list for printing, or storing in a spreadsheet or database. DDFileCatcher is ideal for file cataloging, getting filepaths to paste into "file open" dialogs, "hard-coded" filepaths as used in computer programming, listing the files you have used or changed, and for any application where you need to record file paths and folder names accurately and easily.

Inventory of system files

I needed to inventory all my files on my hard drive in order to gain a better understanding of the asset value and knowledge base that was currently in our systems.

We have a manifold of file types and hte DDFile Catcher software was the ideal application for capturing the file names, type, dates and size.

The process took less than 5 minutes to download, apply and then capture the files to an external excel spread sheet. With out this application, this project would have easily taken me 3 or 4 full days was completed. As it was I reduced this time to less than 3 hours once the information was secured using the DD File Catcher.

Thank you for creating a fantastic utility.

Didn`t work

I could not get it to work with the Excel 97 that I run.

Author's Response:
The interface between DDFileCatcher and Excel is written in Visual Basic for Applications (VBA). Big changes were made to Excel VBA with the introduction of Excel 2000. It could be that some of the changes mean that the interface code will not run on your copy of Excel 97. There is always a balance to strike between supporting "legacy" software and using the features offered by new improved versions.
