Simple File Lister
Simple File Lister is an application with a name that reveals its purpose right from the very start. It aims to provide you with a tool that can generate a complete list of files in a certain directory, while trying to keep things as simple as possible.
Adopting a forthright approach, this program provides a more appealing alternative to using the DIR command in the console for viewing the content of a folder.
The main interface consists of a single window that comprises options for selecting the target and the output locations. The input folder can be stored on the local hard drive or a shared directory in the network.
Aside from this, the application offers you the possibility to select the file attributes to import. This is rather important, because a music file or a picture do not have the same relevant attributes as an executable one. For instance, you cannot list the artist or the album for an EXE file.
Fortunately, Simple File Lister comes with a set of predefined templates that you can use to select the properties you want listed, taking into consideration the type of files included in the input directory. Sub-folders can be optionally scanned and attribute lists can be saved for later use.
The application can generate the output list and automatically export it to various formats, such as TXT, CSV or TSV, which can be easily imported into spreadsheet applications.
Simple File Lister is mainly intended for those who prefer a GUI to the command prompt, enabling them to list the files in a folder and retrieve over 200 attribute types. It is very easy to handle, it can be launched in multiple instances and allows multi-thread processing, which makes it worth your time.
