"The best cataloging program that you can imagine."

The thumbnail previews are available even without the link to the original files, so if you search for a photo or picture, you can preview it BEFORE reaching the disk!

"Exactly the program for which I was looking. In cataloging the photo, video and document file content for about two hundred blu-ray disks of material I've found WinCatalog handled it very well.
Particularaly useful for me have been both the automatic attachment of thumbnails for photos (and videos) and the program's serach functionality in general. These have proven very effective in catlog searches.
The ability to tag or add comments to files, directories, and partial or whole disks greatly improves later retrieval/location of content. I also appreciate that I can select multiple files/disks/folders and apply a comment to them in one stroke (a real time saver). A well-designed underlying database design with excellent functionality, an effective and intuitive interface, and a helpful manual. Well done!"
"Just simply a great cataloging program"
"With a number of drives removed for archive, this allows me to know where files are. Tried a lot of cataloging programs, and found this one to be the most intuitive to use."
"Great cataloging app. Fast and accurate."
