Content Lister is a small-sized and portable piece of kit that you can use to get a list of all files and directories which exist in a location. It comes in handy if you want to keep track of everything or if you want to organize a collection of music, movies or books, for instance.
Since there is no installation involved, you can drop the executable file in any part of the hard disk and just click it to run. Unlike installers, Content Lister does not add new entries to the Windows registry or Start menu, leaving the disk clean after removal.
Quickly generate a list of all contents
Launching the executable file triggers Content Lister to immediately calculate all files and folders from the location it is currently placed in. It automatically creates a plain text document in the same location with each file and folder's name, file type, total number of files and directories, along with the scanned path.
There are no other notable options provided by this software utility. The main downside is that it does not feature a classical interface where you can specify the exact path of the location you want scanned, instead of having to move Content Lister each time. Moreover, it overwrites existing files, so you should be careful.
Evaluation and conclusion
We have not come across any issues throughout our evaluation, since the app did not hang, crash or pop up error dialogs. It generates lists rapidly while remaining light on the system resources, as it uses low CPU and RAM. All in all, Content Lister gets the job done and can be used by anyone.
