Today Giveaway of the Day

Absolute security and privacy!

Whether you are preparing to reinstall the operating system or just to rearrange your personal files, the first step you have to take is building an index of all files and folders available on your system, in order to decide which ones to keep and which to disregard. Filename Lister is a very basic application that can do this. It gives you the possibility to choose any drive or directory in order to list all containing files, folders or both. There are also exporting options available, in case you want to not just view the listed items but also save this information to file. Following a fast and speedy setup operation that should not give you any trouble, you're welcomed by a simple window with a plain and simple structure, where you can get started by choosing a drive or directory to scan.

System Requirements:

Windows 10/ 8.1/ 8/ 7/ Vista/ XP

I use FAR file manager (a Windows version of the old Norton Commander in DOS) nearly always instead of Explorer, and I believe that 7zip (a well-known, recommended and popular free programme for zipping and unzipping) has a file manager that does much the same. It not only lists files in directories, it enables you to easily copy, move or delete, compare directories and so on. Hover on a file and it tells you its size, or you can get the size of each by rearranging the display. It tells you the size of the drive, how much free space you have and how much free memory.
There is something called du.exe which is free, but I forget where I got it from, which gives you the total number of bytes used in a directory (optionally including sub-directories),
A great asset is the possibility to easily insert a fairly long description alongside a file name. I fail to see what this giveaway adds.

Karen's Directory Printer is free with more versatility.

I use my command prompt, and the "dir" command.
redirect the output to a .txt file. use the /b switch
to not include - the long folder address.
Doesn't show folder size, but that's not as important as the contents.

dir>filename.txt /b
you could do all the subdirectories "/s"
but you get all the directory tree listed in front of each filename.

Every search I ran was shown as (out of bounds) much the same as our Korean friend's complaint.

Well, it was an experiment.... Dunno how it got past 1.0

Not sure why I need this as I have never felt the need to print off my folder or file list.
It does have the ability ot calculate folder size which is missing from explorer and Everything. There is of course the Foldersize program which can do this but its very problematic. Not a keeper.

john, Everything can show folder size now. it is an option.

I am a Korean.

1. When I exported the file list of c: into text file,
Korean letters changed to different code Korean letters.

2. I cannot export the file list of c: into csv file.
The message was 'List index out of bounds (1)'.

I always use the free Everything from Voidtools when I want to see what is using up space.

It's also available as a portable version.

Installed easily on Windows 8.1. Tested on Drive C:.
Seems a bit slow compared to other similar programs.
Couldn't find a way of stopping it to change options apart from shutting the program down.
Compared to the program I normally use, which is Treesize Free, this is a very simple program and doesn't seem to offer anything.
It is one of those programs which makes you ask - "why did they bother?" when there are other ones around which are lightyears ahead.

John, which other programs would you recommend? One use I have is to list file & folder contents of my media drive - movies & TV shows.

Reply   |   Comment by driver8  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-17)

driver8, I same as John use Treesize for ages...
To keep track of all my files inventory I will recommend Cathy from here http://www.mtg.sk/rva/
it never let me down with dozens of disks logged.

adid, thanks - I will check that out. :)
I use Treesize (of course) and also I usually use Karen's for directory listings, which works well, but always on the lookout for new tools. :-)

adid, Cathy is working for you with Windows 10?

What's wrong with the FREE Microsoft [ Dir /b /o /s > dir.txt ] command?

Then open [ dir.txt ] in pay-for Word or Excel ( or FREE equivalent ) if you want to search, sort, and select.

Our archives change often enough that FREE [ Everything ] helps us find something that we know about, and the FREE [ Dir ] command makes lists, and FREE or pay word processors and or spreadsheets search, sort, and select text lists created by the FREE [ Dir ] command.

"... Why did Vovosoft bother ..." especially for $10, to develop a program with little or no features, and absolutely no benefits?

Again, the FREE Microsoft DOS / Windows [ Dir ] command:

Displays a list of files and subdirectories in a directory.

DIR [drive:][path][filename] [/A[[:]attributes]] [/B] [/C] [/D] [/L] [/N]
[/O[[:]sortorder]] [/P] [/Q] [/R] [/S] [/T[[:]timefield]] [/W] [/X] [/4]

[drive:][path][filename] -- Specifies drive, directory, and/or files to list.

/A Displays files with specified attributes.
-- attributes
-- D Directories
-- R Read-only files
-- H Hidden files
-- A Files ready for archiving
-- S System files
-- I Not content indexed files
-- L Reparse Points
-- - Prefix meaning not

/B Uses bare format (no heading information or summary).

/C Display the thousand separator in file sizes. This is the
default. Use /-C to disable display of separator.

/D Same as wide but files are list sorted by column.

/L Uses lowercase.

/N New long list format where filenames are on the far right.

/O List by files in sorted order.
-- sortorder
-- N By name (alphabetic)
-- S By size (smallest first)
-- E By extension (alphabetic)
-- D By date/time (oldest first)
-- G Group directories first
-- - Prefix to reverse order

/P Pauses after each screenful of information.

/Q Display the owner of the file.

/R Display alternate data streams of the file.

/S Displays files in specified directory and all subdirectories.

/T Controls which time field displayed or used for sorting
-- timefield
-- C Creation
-- A Last Access
-- W Last Written

/W Uses wide list format.

/X This displays the short names generated for non-8dot3 file
names. The format is that of /N with the short name inserted
before the long name. If no short name is present, blanks are
displayed in its place.

/4 Displays four-digit years

Switches may be preset in the DIRCMD environment variable. Override
preset switches by prefixing any switch with - (hyphen)--for example, /-W.

It's just not that hard to read and play with the FREE tools that come with out computers, folks, puleeze, give it a try!

driver8, Remember to try Filelist Creator by Stefan Trost Media. Check out the site for more details. It exports to many formats. Since I am a "collector" once I fill up an External DVD drive I always like to know what's where. That's when programs like VVV (Virtual Programs View) are handy. I will check out this freebie in the meantime.

Thanks, Antonio, I will check that one out, too - looks very good. :-)

Thanks, Peter Blaise. Nothing wrong with the command line, but I prefer a GUI these days. :-) Besides, 'Filelist Creator by Stefan Trost Media' (as Antonio, below) has lots of useful extra features.

[ driver8 ],


Stefan Troust's File List Creator is very all purpose, and at least offers a preview of the results of choices live as you make them, though it is awkward and with self-inflicted brick-walls and dead-ends ( for example, [ Search folder ... ] can't browse a network, but [ Add files ... ] can, so we have to manually search in the [ Add file ... ] feature, then cut-and-paste a network address into [ Search folder ... ], then [ Search folder ... ] CAN browse a network -- doh! ).

With a little patience and a notepad, and a lot of iteration, I can build a list that I can then pump into Word or Excel to clean up ( all I want is directory names, and the computer they are on, such as a combined list of all MOVIES on all my networked COMPUTERS so that when I want to watch a movie, I can find that movie wherever it is, for example ).

So, I have to export to Word or Excel, and combine multiple searches, and do a search, sort, replace cleanup anyway.

1990s DOS [ Dir ] command seems -w-a-y- faster, especially put into a DOS batch file once I find the most accurate choices for me, run that batch file before sitting down to watch a movie, then sort the resulting text tile in Word or Excel, and viola, 1, 2, 3 steps, and I've got a contemporaneous index of all my movies.

That's what computers are for -- to learn anything we want to do twice ... we do it once, and the computer does it from the second time onward.

Thanks, though -- we each have our own needs, hence it's called PERSONAL computing.
