Fast, Robust, Full Featured

FileFinder is built with the latest Mac OS X technologies and uses the more efficient APIs to run as fast and secure as possible. FileFinder allows multiple, background, automatic, periodical and batch cataloging.

Catalog Everything

FileFinder can catalog anything which contains files. This includes, but is not limited to, folders, internal and external drives, CDs, DVDs, Blu-Ray disks, iPods, USB sticks, network volumes, etc...

Multiple Databases, Network Sharing

FileFinder works with multiple catalog databases which can be stored and accessed over the network by multiple users. Catalog databases are natively compressed to save disk space and network bandwidth.

Find Everything

FileFinder catalogs all files, including invisible ones, and bundles content. It catalogs and searches a file's metadata as well as its Finder labels, Spotlight comments and other criteria.

Rich Display

FileFinder provides Icon, List and Column views to display catalog items and search results. In List view you are able to show or hide columns and rearrange them in any order you like. Actions are also available through contextual menus from any of the Icon, List or Column views.

Create Image Previews, Store Metadata

FileFinder can create thumbnails from your images or movies with customizable size and quality, and store available metadata (EXIF, IPTC, JFIF, TIFF, etc...) in the catalog database for future browsing and searching.

Rich Customization

FileFinder lets you choose icon size, text size and font for catalogs and catalog items as well as background color for catalogs. It can also display colors related to the kind of catalog items. Additionally, icons can be adjusted in size with a slider scale in all Icon, List and Column views and Icon view allows for an extra scale factor setting.
