Main features of WinCatalog File Catalog Software:

WinCatalog can extract Exif and thumbnails

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

Database Driven

The main advantage of WinCatalog 2024 File Catalog software is extremely fast operation of the catalog thanks to industrial database standards implemented in the program and powered by SQLite DBMS. With it, you can find any given object in your database in a matter of seconds!

Intuitive and simple interface

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 2024 File Catalog software right after installation.

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 (tags) to every element for quicker and more accurate search. While arranging the catalog 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 disk drives #1, etc., and to assign matching catalog items with every storage place. This is an enormous time saver when you have hundreds of disks and other media.

WinCatalog 2024 can generate reports

Report generation and XML, HTML or CSV (e.g. for MS Excel and other applications) export and printing

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

Unicode support

Unicode support

WinCatalog File Catalog software correctly deals with any names and titles regardless of the language thanks to full Unicode support.
