Talking about a time saver!

This application is brilliant and an incredible time saver. If you really want to know the files, folders and related data your hard disk contains, with very few exceptions, this is all you need.
It literally runs through thousands of files in no time and presents you with a list of the name, amount, size, kind and a bunch of other information you may want to dig up and then allows you to save the results in several standard formats. This ought to be a feature of the OS. I haven’t seen any problems running this application and the price is dirt cheap for what it can do. Hope it stays around for ever. Kudos to the developer!

Not great if you have many files, UX could be improved

I scanned a folder with several thousand files. It took a good 40 minutes. At the end I realized everything was very small and difficult to read, so I decided to make the window larger. Only, on the bottom right corner, right where you’d usually click to make a window larger, is a small button called “Clear Results”. And I clicked it. And everything was absolutely GONE. So I started the process all over again…😡 And surprisingly, no possibility to undo either! 😡 This is a really, really, really bad place to put a button.
Another thing that made the spreadsheet very difficult to understand is that everything went into the first “File Name” column. There was no indentation to help understand what was inside which folder, and that is also very problematic when looking at a list of files.
All in all, I wish I could have tried this app for 5 minutes before having to buy it. I wish I could get a refund.

Does a job nothing else will do

This slick little app grabs file names and organizes them. I needed an excel file of several thousand photo file names to import to a database. File List Export provided this in seconds, along with metadata in other useful columns. Version 2.0 will even sort files out by file type and organize them into folders. I haven’t needed to do this, but if I did, I’d trust this app. Very sweet.
