WinCatalog 2020.7 Release

Hello, we’re glad to announce that the new version of WinCatalog was just released. The version number is 2020.7.

  • The search logic was updated in this release. It is possible now to find files using non-alphabetic characters in search queries (%, &, #, etc). Previously, all these characters were considered as word separators, and search queries “#word”, “##word”, and “word$” (without quotes) were equal for WinCatalog. Now WinCatalog treats them as 3 different search queries, and search results will be different for all three queries.

  • ‘Search Index wasn’t Updated’ issue after running the Add File command and selecting multiple files at once was fixed.

  • A mouse wheel incorrect scrolling behavior was fixed when the mouse wheel is in the page scroll mode.

  • Now WinCatalog uses two fields: volume serial number and volume label to identify volumes. The new addition fixes an issue when two different disks (volumes) have equal volume serial numbers.

  • The File Operation Queue opening speed was significantly improved for cases when the File Operation Queue contains a large number of files from drives not connected to the computer.

  • The option to exclude small files from checksum/hashes calculation was turned off by default (affects new catalog files only).

  • Other minor changes.
