FileList Version 1.0 Release

I mentioned in my previous post, I was planning to develop a tool to easily generate a list of files in a folder for further processing. Well, last night I put something together and I am now releasing it to the public.

I am calling is FileList and it is a portable application. Unzip to a folder where you have read/write access. All settings are saved in the application folder.

Some features:
  • Unicode support for multilingual use
  • Drag and drop support, you can drop folders/files to the application and it will list the files of the folder
  • Command line argument supported (for right click event in explorer)
  • Settings to change font and customize output

It took a while to figure out what the options did, but when I did it seems like a nice lightweight little tool.

I am perplexed as to why a subfolders checkbox isn't included.

Could you have the columns lined up on the output ? it would keep me from having to import it into a spreadsheet to get the columns lined up.

Any chance it could include column headings ?

Could file modification date/time be an optional column ?

Duplicate inclusion/exclusion or marking ?

Could you include a way to select multiple drives to search (including network drives not mapped)?

Here's why.....

I have 3 computers with multiple internal and external USB drives that all contain nested subdirectories of files (pictures lets say) with the same extension.

I want to print out an alphabetized listing of all of the files with their size, path, and file date as a combined list from about 12 different drives so I can print a master list of all of my files and weed out duplicates.

Very cool lightweight util, but OMG major missiing part. Where is the print button???!!!! I know you can cut and paste but if I am going to do that I can just use Notepad. Please add a print button and this is perfect!

Exactly what I was looking for. This will make my life very much easier when creating catalogs for my seed store. DollarSeed

Can attributes be added such as length of the file (that we usually see in windows explorer) for the .wav files etc.?

This seems to be the right tool for my needs. Unfortunately, the Download links don't work. Is there a way to fix it or redirect to the current file's location?
