CATaloguer Pro (ACAT Pro) v2.6
Advanced CATaloguer Pro - professional cataloguing software
for searching out files stored on all kinds of digital media (from
hard drives through all kinds of modern removable media to floppy
disks). This utility keeps track of the contents of any CD, DVD, floppy
disk, local or network drive, enabling you to quickly find any file.
ACAT Pro supports all kinds of media recognized as drives
by Windows and lets users include into the current database individual
folders or even files from any media. This feature enables users
to create individual catalogs for various kinds of files (e.g. a
catalog of music files, a document library, a database of all files
related to some project etc.) - even if all files are stored in
various directories on one drive. The program features powerful
search capabilities: it can perform the search using Boolean expressions,
find files by name, description, notes or keywords, using the size
and date limits - all this without physically accessing the disks.
When a file is located, you can view its properties, open it, or
launch Windows Explorer to its parent folder.
Although ACAT Pro has been primarily designed for organizing
removable media, it has a number of other uses:
- The Find Duplicates feature lets users locate duplicate documents
on the hard drive: in addition to file name, size and modification
date/time comparison ACAT Pro compares the files by their
CRC32 code, making it absolutely impossible to miss identical
or confuse different files.
- ACAT Pro combines powerful search capabilities with file
management functions, enabling users to perform operations (move,
copy, delete) on groups of certain files (for example, a user
can find all documents, modified after a certain date - no matter
where they are stored - and copy them to one folder for backup
- The program's synchronization features allow using it for monitoring
changes on a disks: when a user performs synchronization of data
on a disk (or in an individual folder), all new, modified and
deleted files are shown.
Other program's features include the ability to read other cataloguing
software database formats (currently - the databases created Advanced
Disk Catalog), powerful reporting capabilities, password-protecting
the catalogs, checking for updates, multilingual interface (more
20 languages), support for Windows XP themes and more.
