"I love this program Wincatalog wich I looked for years to solve my problems. As a photographer I store more hundred thousands full size digital images. I needed a strong and reliable application to make this huge image base manageable. My pics stored on several small and full size Hdds, CDs and DVDs off-line and on-line, too. I wanted to find my individual image fast, easy and reliable. The working method, the good way is not only to search for a file but to see also the thumbnail picture too for easy identification. It works and I am happy to find WinCatalog for this job as the right solution and program. Recently I got more than 2 TByte data scanned by WinCatalog 2015. It helps me day by day to find my pics :) I am glad to find and use this application as my great help whitout I could not use my huge amount picture base. I also use this program to find fast my documents and stored other files as a high capacity file searcher and register. I do offer to photographers and to all those who keep more thousands images or other files on HDD and storages to manage and find their important files. It is great to find my induvidual pics from previous years the right files at the identified place in the right time. Thank you guys for developing this unique program I've been looking for years!"
