Wow! - I have a couple of large collections that are well sorted. When I used win, I had a program that could make a list of the files for me. Never found anything on the mac. This bit of heaven not only gives me a list of names but attributes, file size, the file name and the file path as separate entities. I haven’t had any problem with it yet, but I have a large chunk of memory, so maybe that helps. I am very, very happy that I can make inventories now… oh, it also was able to provide data on external drives, too. Many thanks to Giorgos for such a useful little program!!!!!

Talking about a time saver! - This application is brilliant and an incredible time saver. If you really want to know the files, folders and related data your hard disk contains, with very few exceptions, this is all you need. It literally runs through thousands of files in no time and presents you with a list of the name, amount, size, kind and a bunch of other information you may want to dig up and then allows you to save the results in several standard formats. This ought to be a feature of the OS. I haven’t seen any problems running this application and the price is dirt cheap for what it can do. Hope it stays around for ever. Kudos to the developer!

Review by GulfCoastBotanizer

Does a job nothing else will do - This slick little app grabs file names and organizes them. I needed an excel file of several thousand photo file names to import to a database. File List Export provided this in seconds, along with metadata in other useful columns. Version 2.0 will even sort files out by file type and organize them into folders. I haven’t needed to do this, but if I did, I’d trust this app. Very sweet.

Great Archiving Tool - Really appreciate this little app. I use it to create an index of the files I am archiving to tape. I save an excel doc on the tape archive for posterity and keep a local copy of the spreadsheets so I can reference it and find files quickly on tape. Keep up the good work!

Review by Kimberly Sterling

Well worth the buy! - I love this software. I add descriptions to my thousands of photos. Next, I create a list of items in the folder plus include the descriptions of each image, export to a spreadsheet. It effortlessly does what would take hours of manual labor. Oh, when I see images in my list, it shows a preview of that photo. Sweet!

Review by DaVinci'sBusCard

WOW! I love it! - Amazing! Does exactly what it promises to do and FAST! My iMac files (OS 10.10) need some serious straightening up, and I’ve used all but about 29GB of 1TB on my hard drive. Ten years worth of saving documents anf images of all sorts. Over the years, I’ve sometimes forgotten that I already had a folder for something and then created a new folder and started piling docs into the new one. Now I’m re-discovering the folders I originally set up and 1) getting rid of outdated materials and 2) combining contents that really should be under one roof. This nifty app makes it so easy I can’t believe it. Can’t imagine how I managed without it.
