Main features you get:

WinCatalog can extract Exif and thumbnails

Ability to extract and store in a catalog thumbnails of graphic files (photos, pictures, RAW-images), as well as EXIF data of digital photographs

Thanks to WinCatalog 2016 disk catalog software you can automatically create and store thumbnails of graphic files saved in all popular formats (JPEG, PNG, BMP, ICO, GIF, Tiff, WMF, and EMF) or RAW image formats produced by most of modern digital cameras. You can also save EXIF data (comments, resolution, camera model, focal distance, and other parameters).

This means you can preview picture thumbnails in the catalog without the need to open the particular media. And this in turn allows you to quickly and easily locate a photo or an image in your collection!

Fluently scan inside Zip, RAR, and 7z archives as well as ISO disk images, and add them as folders into the catalog

The program supports Zip, Zipx, RAR, and 7z compressed files as well as ISO and NRG disk images. Files inside archives are displayed as files in folders.

WinCatalog 2016 extracts ID3 tags

Automatically extract supplemental information from music, video, HTML, TXT files during disk scanning

  • WinCatalog 2016 can display ID3 tags including artist name, song, album, disk cover and other information for music files in the following formats: MP3, WAV, WMA, OGG, OGA, ASF, M4A, M4B, M4P and MP4.
  • For video files WinCatalog extracts basic information including thumbnail, codec, video frame resolution, audio tracks information, etc.
  • For HTML files WinCatalog extracts and stores headings and tags.
  • For text files WinCatalog extracts a part of text and creates a preview that is displayed when you search for a particular document.

The advanced catalog search algorithm, search results filtering, simultaneous multi-search, search for duplicate files

WinCatalog implements both the typical search algorithm using simple queries and the advanced search using logical operators AND, OR, parenthesis and quotes - this makes the search more precise and provides for exact matching catalog search results. And since you can filter search results any way you want, you can find the desired catalog element almost instantly. Besides, search results can be grouped together using one or more criteria to quickly locate duplicate files.

Powerful search function
Database Driven

Unlimited disk catalog size meets unprecedentedly high operating speed

The main advantage of WinCatalog 2016 is extremely high operating speed while processing disk catalog, thanks to industrial database standards and SQLite DBMS. Using this advantage, you can find any object (a disk, a folder or a file) in your catalog in a matter of seconds!

Extremely simple and intuitive user interface

We put much into developing as simple and straightforward interface as possible in order to let you enjoy all functions of WinCatalog 2016 disk catalog software right after installation.

Intuitive and simple interface
Contact management

Contacts, tags and storage management (including virtual folders usage)

  • Contact management allows you to control who you give a certain disk to.
  • Tag management allows you to assign a set of keywords to every element for quicker and more accurate search. While arranging the collection across virtual folders using drag'n'drop leaving the actual file and folder structure intact allows you to manage your disk catalog better.
  • Storage management allows you to add all possible disk storage places to the program. This could be, for instance, "box #1", "DVD holder #2", shelf for hard disks #1, etc., and to assign matching collection elements with every storage place. This is an enormous time saver when you have hundreds of disks and other media.

Report generation and HTML or CSV export

This function allows you to create nice reports, containing your file and disk collection, to send to your friends, publish online, print or perform in-depth processing in MS Excel.

WinCatalog 2016 can generate reports

WinCatalog 2016 Disk Catalog Software Screenshots

Screenshots were made under Windows 8 (WinCatalog as a desktop app)

Real customers say:

"I could not be happier with any other tracking program. To me WinCatalog does it all... It contains the answers and database tracking I have looked for in other programs, but have never found. Although slightly higher in cost compared to others, it's money well spent. If you're looking for a program to track those many movies, or whatever it might be, this is it!"
Peter Huber
"Excellent software! Thank you for sticking to conventional look & feel as much as possible — it makes the program very intuitive to use. Also, the nested virtual folders alone are worth the money — no one else seems to understand or implement this feature correctly."
James Lohman
"By the way — fantastic program. I had used WinCatalog Light years ago. Now bought copies of Pro for myself and my wife for work and pleasure. Having cataloged old drives I have been able to easily find things I had long forgotten."
John Blackmore
